There is nothing quite like a thatched roof to evoke nostalgia. Many people still prefer the aesthetic beauty of a thatched roof, not to mention the craftsmanship that goes into the installation. It is estimated that there are less than 1,500 thatched roofs left in Ireland, hence why it is so important to maintain them.
