Easy to apply, versatile and hard wearing reed tile creating a stepped thatch finish.

A flexible strip along the top is securely bonded to the hard wearing cape reed tile allowing it to flex around corners and accommodate almost any shaped roof.

Clips along the top make for easy instillation. Simply clip onto a 6 mm wire, rod or cord attached to the roof structure. Alternatively screw directly through the top of the tile into your frame.

Tiles cut easily and butt together for an almost completely water tight seal.

Apply in layers from the bottom of the roof in 30 cm (12″) steps up the roof.

For weather proofing and lifespan your roof pitch should be at least 30 degrees pitch.

If your roof is square, or has very pronounced hips, you will need ‘Corner’ tiles (in image 3) These get you around a 90 degree corner. These replace 1/4 of a tile to both faces.

If your roof has a straight ridge or hips you will need to run the tiles to the top and then finish with a ridge molding or 2 x end moldings and end caps if you have hips.

Allow approx. 3.5 tiles per m square (10′ square). If you don’t know how many you require you can email us a photo or picture of your roof along with some dimensions and we can work it out for you. We need the length or diameter of your roof and the distance from the ridge (top) of the roof to the eve (bottom) along the angle of the thatch.

Use in conjunction with ‘Cape Reed Natural Thatch Top Cone’ to finish your roof top.

If you order more tiles than you need we will be happy to refund you for them on return provided they have been kept dry and complete!

Standard Cape Reed Tile- £ 14

Dimensions: 32″ x 18 ” x 1″ (800 mm x 450 mm x 25 mm)

Heavy  Cape Reed Tile- £ 16.50

Dimensions: 32″ x 18 ” x 1″ (800 mm x 450 mm x 25 mm)
If your roof is conical the top course (below the top cone) will require 3 ‘Heavy’ thatch tiles instead of standard tiles. As the diameter is so small normal tiles loose there definition so the step in the finish looks odd. Heavy tiles have more material in them without being thicker. They don’t lose there definition when fanned out.
