Since centuries reed is used as a natural roof covering. Especially the insulating properties and water resistance are making water reed a perfect thatching material. A thatched roof functions just like the fur of an animal. The infiltration of humidity is refused and the run off of rain drops is supported. Simultaneously a roof cladding is generated. The elasticity of the roof cladding is necessary to hold out against wind compression and to support the wooden roof construction. Water reed for thatching is delivered in bundles whereas a water reed bundle has a amplitude of about 60 cm. For covering one square meter roofage with a 35 – 40 cm thick thatched layer you need 10 to 12 bundles.
Along with water reed as a roofing material clay is an important completion. In Northern Germany thatched roofs were and are often plastered with clay on the inside. The clay plaster has several advantages for the thatched roof. In this way the roof is made windproof and the insulating effect is supported. The clay dehumidifies the thatched roof and rafter. Thereby the roof beams are conserved, mould growth is prevented and the rotting is decelerated. The clay plaster functions as well as a fire protection. In case of fire the clay generates a protecting coating and retards the defection of fire from the outside to the inside of the roof.
