ABOUT US

What We Do

Working in the time-honored tradition of the English and Dutch Master Thatchers, JNA Thatchers take pride in being professional “thatchers” and not merely packers of thatching materials. Over the years we have proven that quality will always be the foundation of everything we do.
We strive to create a superior quality of life for our staff and clients by the creative utilization of resources. By learning from the past and constantly developing new techniques and methods, we’ve become pioneers for the future of thatch.
Whether it is the concept development of a modern thatched building, staying true to the Old Cape Dutch design or maintenance on your thatched roof…we do it all!
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

TESTIMONIALS

"12 years, 5 projects later: A complete new thatch roof with an additional floor, a revamped factory with an extra office floor, a new bedroom, a new kitchen and now an additional bathroom…. Not often after all of this, would you refer to your contractor as “a friend” when speaking of him. Thank you Abrie and team for the years of good work."

DAVID HARTLEY, OWNER OF ACTION FRAMES

"The thatched roof of a house we bought was in need of repairs and JNA Thatchers was recommended to me by a number of people who were totally unrelated. I took this to be a good indication of their reputation and competence. After a detailed review of the state of the thatch, we decided that a total replacement of the roof was the best option. The result was magnificent - not a mean feat when taking into account the thousands of kilometers and many flight hours that separated me from the JNA Thatchers team! I am very satisfied with the work JNA Thatchers carried out and warmly recommend their services."

VALEIRA SISTEK, CLIENT FROM SWITZERLAND

“Dankie julle vir ons pragtige Lapa, ons love dit!”

MR. LABUSCHAGNE, HOME OWNER

"As the project called for a new thatch roof, plus all the building work, it was a bonus to find JNA, a company that is an expert in both. All under one roof, so to speak! It was also a ‘design as we go’ project, so it was a pleasure working with a team full of good ideas and innovation. The quality of the work is excellent. For the few defects found, they did not hesitate to return and repair. I would recommend the JNA team to anyone!"

DANIE VAN DER SPUY, ARCHITECT

"Ons is baie beÏndruk met die dak - die kwaliteit is SO goed en die dak lyk baie baie mooi!"

OUR WORK PROCESS

Whether we are working directly with the client, or serving as a subcontractor, thorough planning remains the key to successful execution. During our planning process the scope of work will be stablished, costings will be calculated and a time frame within works need to be completed will be identified.

Next, we will start designing. Our level of involvement would depend on the nature of the project, but having a structural engineer as our Technical Director, allows JNA Thatchers the option of doing all designs and details in-house.  Alternatively, we will work with the architects to ensure that the material requested will work with the designs provided.
The development stage is where all material will be procured, prepared and checked for the project to start.
“Proper planning and preparation prevents poor performance” (S. Keague) , thus once all preparation has been done, we are ready to start our project! At JNA THATCHERS we pride ourselves in our quality and vow to never walk away from a challenge.  Our adaptability, skill and thorough preparations allows us to execute projects with great success.
