Hoe onderhoud je een rieten dak?

Rieten daken dienen goed onderhouden te worden. Mossen en algen zijn niet goed voor een rieten dak omdat het een afsluitende laag kan vormen op een rieten dak waardoor het riet niet meer goed kan drogen en ‘ademen’. De kwaliteit van het riet gaat hierdoor snel achteruit. Daarom is het belangrijk om een rieten dak goed te laten onderhouden met een mos- en algenwerend product.

Hoe lang gaat een rieten dak mee?

Indien het rieten dak goed is ontworpen, vakkundig is aangelegd en goed wordt onderhouden, kan een rieten dak minimaal 25 jaar meegaan. Ook zijn er praktijkvoorbeelden waar rieten daken zelfs na 35 - 40 jaar nog in goede staat zijn.

Wat kost een rieten dak?

Logischerwijs hangen de kosten van een rieten dak af van de oppervlakte van het dak. Ook kan de prijs verschillen aan de hand van de opties en details waarvoor gekozen wordt. Afhankelijk van deze factoren betaal je voor een rieten dak ongeveer €75 - €95 per vierkante meter. Ook komen hier nog kosten bij voor de verschillende materialen, plaatsing en afwerking.
