Risks of not insuring your thatched roof

A house with a thatched roof has a greater risk of fire than a house with tiles, for example. Thatch is more flammable than stone. A thatched roof is also more vulnerable to storms. Nowadays there are more and more storms in the Netherlands. They are often accompanied by very strong winds and a lot of precipitation. As a result, thatched roofs are increasingly prone to leakage. Moreover, thatched roofs do not last as long as other types, which is why problems may arise after about 25 years.
