Reed roofs have existed for many years in our history. Once they were built for convenience: reeds grow in marshy and watery places and were a free construction material. But today a reed roof is much more than that.
A reed roof is an environmentally friendly as well as stylish solution for home. Exceptional properties of this material allows making the roofs of different shapes and giving the building a modern look. Such roofs are a very popular choice for log houses, because the weight of the reeds help them settle faster. A reed roof does not need a rainwater drainage system and has good sound insulation and thermal conductivity properties. According to STR 2.01.09:2005, overall heat transfer coefficient is λd.s.=0.09 W(m·K). Depending on roof structure and quality of installation, a well-maintained reed roof can serve up to 50 years.
