What If Your Client Wants A Thatched Roof Home?

Services for Real Estate Pros with YourSiteNeedsMe.com

Let's say you have a client with their heart set on a thatched roof home. What are you going to do? Thatched roof homes aren't flooding the market, yet a small demographic within this new generation of home buyers want a thatched roof home. They are thinking about the ambiance and the eco-friendly aspects.

Educate yourself on the topic, and you'll probably be able to convince your client that practically any home will do. How? Easy. Endureed synthetic thatch can be installed on almost any home. Low slopes aren't an issue with this synthetic thatch. If the home will need a new roof soon anyway, explain that an Endureed roof can be installed by just about any roofer. If they can shingle a home, they can install this synthetic thatch.

But what about the eco-friendly aspect of thatch? Well, as Endureed explains repeatedly, thatch isn't eco-friendly like it used to be. Building codes require regular applications of flame retardants on thatched roofs which are far from eco-friendly. Insurance companies usually require regular applications of pesticides on thatched roofs. Also not eco-friendly. Endureed synthetic thatch is recyclable and made with recycled materials!

So, let them know they can have their thatched roof home, and they can have it on just about any home on the market!

Also, if you're planning a roofing project, consider greener, more durable options. People all around the world are choosing to step back in time ambiance-wise (while choosing exceptionally modern, durable technology) and opting for synthetic thatch roofs. So, check it out. You might be able to turn your ordinary structure into an extraordinary one!

That's quite interesting.... I've never had anyone ask for one of these and because most of our homes are in HOA communities, they probably wouldn't be allowed as they'd be out of character with community roofs, in general.

In South America I lived for a year in a mud hut with a thatched roof that never leaked.

Now, the muddy floors and horrific fleas were a different problem!

If people really want a thatched roof I'm sure they can get a great price on a mud hut down there!

In Virginia?  I've never seen one.  Frankly I did not know they existed!  Like Nina says, they would never be allowed by any HOA around here...

Interesting. I can't imagine they would weather much of anything. With the amount of pressure cleaning standard roofs require in Florida, plus hurricane codes, I don't think I'll have to worry about thatched roofs! Thanks for sharing!

Educate or send the where they can get the full info and then let them know they can replace a roof and just look for a home they like
