    Alternative Roofing Materials

    I was wondering whether other members could give their attention to my roofing dilemma by posting or adding pictures or links to anything affiliated with roofing in thailand. It doesnt have to be traditional, from anywhere, any design but just concentrating on the roof, materials shape etc etc

    I am going to be building next year, non cement foundation/walls etc , natural materials wood cob bamboo, recycled glass etc any help most appreciated!!!!
    im hot its so hot today.......milk was a bad choice!

    No, just open the link and cut and paste the pics from there.

    Easy, no need to upload to gallery.

    Here is a look at our roof on our Thai cottage. This shot is a few years old, but the roof is still good to go. Should last about 5 years or so.

    If on a web site, Right click on the pic you want then, "copy image location".

    On TD, click on the wee yellow icon (with the mountain), right click, paste.

    thank you all for your help with my seemingly easy task, of posting pics........

    thank you to loy toy for his balinese roof structure that is something special indeed, increasing the ventilation space and height of perceptual space with exceptional craftsmanship in wood. very nicely found!!!!!!!

    BEAUTIFUL Craftmanship. What a lovely thought to be able to do this. Not inexpensive I bet.

    Bamboo roof;

    okay so here we have a conventional Chinese method for bamboo roofing, thought by the Chinese still to this day as a poor mans material (they might not be far wrong) , its effect can be seen still in use in Chinese temples as well carried onto Japanese Shinto shrines!
    This channeling allows for good practical water drainage so if you want to collect rainwater for use as gray water this roof style can be incorporated successfully and most effectively for the cheapest price possible. Of course the only main drawback can be from moss growth of decaying leaves so cleaning out is essential, although higher peaked elevation should allow for this not be such a problem!

    For decoration poles were painted normally in the surrounding colours, however nowadays more elaborate and brightly aesthetically appealing colour's are used. I still think this method is better then the traditional thai enthused corragated iron solution though it does take a bit more time to affix.

    here is one such example of this type of roofing, also used is bamboo guttering another cheap way for securing a more natural but effective use of this material.

    Of course another way to use bamboo is in the form of bamboo sheets made into tiles which this diagram shows us, works in the same way to direct rain water, and is an easy and quick way to add cheap roof tiles that dont look cheap or unnatural like iron.

    watch this space for much much more........
