Brisbane Thatch & Decks.
To help us keep maintenance and repair prices low and assist you in quick accurate quotes, It would be of great value if you use the following diagrams to identify your type Bali Hut Structure and measuring guide. Photos from the side and inside is also extremely helpful in giving you a quick diagnostic and relatively accurate estimate.
1) Brisbane Thatch and Decks basically needs the two dimensions X and Y. Taken from the widest point or kicker bar of the Balinese Gazebo.
2) Brisbane Thatch also need to know the type of the Balinese Hut A, B or C.
3) Brisbane Thatch will also need some photo's on the roof, the more the better.
Type A and B - Roofs is the more modern type roofs that is design to give the most space under the Bali Hut. Taking Dimension on the Apex design is a little different because of the thatch overhang see figure A.
On the Standard 4 hip roof the dimensions Brisbane Thatch need is taken from the widest ends of the frame, not between the post. In these types frames the ring beam acts as the kicker bar as well.
If you able to measure or gage the pitch it would also be helpful in giving a more accurate preliminary quote.
Type C - Roofs is more traditional roof designs that has been adapted for Bali Huts . It is important that the dimensions is taken from the most projecting kicker plate of the frame. The new thatch spacing's or bundles thatch use for hip coverings will start from this point. The new thatch will project another 500mm beyond this point..
Hexagonal Roofs and other multi shaped roofs.

1) We, Brisbane Thatch, need basically two dimensions, X And Y. Z would also be helpful but not necessary.
2) Photos' are always very helpful in evaluating the extend of the work needed as well as showing the access to the roof and giving us an idea of the pitch.
If we should describe the Hexagonal roof we would actually refer to it as say a 4 m Hexagon where the dimension 4 = Z = point o point measurement.
