Brisbane Thatch Shingle Huts

Tram-Wood Pattern Shingle Huts

 

These is Tram-Wood Diamond Patterned Shingle Huts build by Brisbane Thatch and Decks.

 

Various outdoor entertainment roofs like Gazebo, Huts and Pavilion roof structures could be transformed into Shingle Roof Huts or Gazebo's. The most popular candidates would be Brushwood roof structures. A Brushwood Roof can easily be turned into a Balinese Hut or a Shingle Gazebo using Tram wood Shingles.

 

A Shingle Hut or Gazebo as a freestanding structure with a roof covering material that consist of smaller overlapping flat elements named shingles.  These shingles are usually rectangular and could have a pattern or sharp point on the ends. Shingles could take various sizes and be made of various elements such as wood, asphalt, slate, plastic, fibrocement, asbestos (which we stay far far away from now) and various other composite materials.

 

From the early beginning European settlers on Australian soil were forced to build houses and structures with materials readily available. Wood was the most common material available. From there our love affair started with the old Queens lander houses and shingle roofs. Evan today we all want the outback escape and hide away from the sun under a primitive timber shingle roof structure.

 

We at Brisbane Thatch and Decks provide a entirely timber custom build Shingle Hut also refer as Shingles Gazebo, Shingle Pergola or Shingle Cabana builds to any shape and size you desire.

 

Brisbane Thatch and Decks also fit shingles to other timber structures that needs a facelift such as the "old brushwood" structures.

 

We use Tram-wood shingles that's have a life expectancy of around 20 years as per Suppliers information and Specifications.

Tram-Wood Patterned Shingles

Brushwood Huts

 

Brushwood is probably the worst Roofing material ever.

 

With a little bit of a effort Brisbane Thatch and Decks can turn your old sad brushwood structure into a magnificent Diamond pattern Tram-wood shingle roof, just as we have done with the Brushwood roof on the photo next to this article. Tram-wood is much more durable than the traditional Canadian red cedar shingles. Tram-wood is a very heavy hardwood. Tram-wood is very similar to Merbua, Merbua in a semi hardwood that is a very popular decking material with a durability one grading for Australian weather conditions.

The Diamond pattern just gives it a far more intricate design than the Standard Canadian red Cedar Shingles. The inside of the Tram-wood Shingle Gazebo's structure is just as impressive. Tram-wood shingles is much longer than Canadian red ceder shingles, thus requiring a wider batten spacing than the Canadian Red Cedar Spacing's. Because of that it's not as busy on the inside and looks just amazing. We only use stainless steel fasteners on the shingles. Making sure there is no weak links that would stop the roof from reaching a ripe age of at least 20 years. (*We do quote the Shingle Suppliers / Manufacturers on the lifespan statistics) We also clean up the site after installation and remove all the rubbish and old roofing materials from the site.

Imported Bali Huts

 

Black string pre-fabricated Bali Huts looks like the real deal when its new but they are using a lesser grade thin woven thatch that just does not pass the test of time. The Prefabricated Panels are fairly easy to assemble but the drawback is that where the panels join is where the thatch will start leaking. The mudbugs on a skewer does not help either. Again easy to assemble but it just does not last.

 

But - If you are the owner of a imported Balinese hut we at Brisbane Thatch and Decks can most surely rethatch your structure our tested and proven way with high grade tightly woven thermal thatch to make sure its last to the maximum potential.

 

Alternatively we at Brisbane Thatch and Decks can turn your old sad looking structure into a magnificent Diamond pattern Tram-wood shingle roof, just as we have done with the sad looking roof on the photo next to this article. Tram-wood is much more durable than traditional Thatch but cost a lot more. The inside of the Tram wood Shingle Gazebo's structure is just as impressive mainly because the batten spacing's is a little bit wider than the Canadian Red Cedar Spacing's it's not as busy on the inside.

Canadian Red Cedar Shingle Huts

 

This is a Canadian Red Cedar Shingle hut with a raised deck and cross pattern handrail build by Brisbane Thatch and Decks.

 

Brisbane Thatch and decks supply and install shingle huts for those of us who prefer a different look or a longer lasting material.

A Shingle hut will outlast a Balinese thatched Hut / Gazebo / Cabana or Pavilion but costing analysis over a twenty year period will prove that they cost about the same. A shingle hut will cost more initially though.
