For thousands of years, thatching has been used by our ancestors as a roofing solution on the Islands of Fiji. The natural roofing came with many downsides. During the hurricane season, it was unable to withstand the heavy rains and strong winds and was often destroyed by insects and deteriorated very quickly leading to continuous maintenance. As more natural materials were harvested for the roofs, the environment suffered.

With so many downsides, why couldn’t we let the natural roof go?

When the islands were not being torn by harsh weather, beneath the thatched roofs were beautiful winds, the beauty of a thatched roof itself, the soft sounds of the thatch and the feel of being on an exotic Island.

This is how the journey started, we went out looking for a solution for the roof we love too much to let go and we found the world leaders in synthetic roofing solutions. Our strategic partners are the first to develop a roofing solution that permanently removes the downsides of natural roofing while maintaining the beauty of the upsides. It feels right, it feels the same as our historic natural roofs but without the stress of maintenance.

Here we are, living on one of the most beautiful continents in the world. What is next? We are on a journey to bring this traditional roofing style to our Kiwi families and ensure that they are able to enjoy all the benefits of a natural roofing solution without the concerns of vigorous maintenance.
