Synthetic thatch can be installed on a variety of surfaces to create an easy, laid-back tropical feel almost anywhere. Use it outdoors to turn your yard into an island paradise, or use synthetic palm thatch inside to bring some island atmosphere to any room in your home. Traditionally, thatch is used as a roofing material to offer shade from the sun and protection from the rain, but installing it on the existing roof of a gazebo or a covered deck gives added protection to the surface beneath it. That not only enhances the environment with a tropical feel, but can also help the roofs last longer.
The nice thing about synthetic thatch roof material is how easy it is to maintain. You won't have to do much by way of cleaning it, especially if you're using it inside your house. Outdoors, nature will take care of washing it down with occasional precipitation and, when you opt for synthetic thatch, it won't mold, shed, or decay so, if you don't live in an area that sees severe storms every year, your thatch roof should last for a minimum of 5 years or longer. It all depends on how harsh weather conditions are. The point at the top of a completely covered roof is the area that often needs the most frequent attention, but it's a simple task to replace the top cone whenever necessary.
