Tiki Thatch Roof

  • Tiki Thatch Roof

    Ages ago, Islanders used materials that nature provided in abundant supply to build the necessities of life. Because palm trees grow like weeds in the tropics, that meant installing a tiki thatch roof instead of roofing homes or other structures with shingles made of tar, tile, or stone. The native builders weren't necessarily trying to go for a unique look or outdo their neighbors. They were simply using supplies that were readily available and that also happened to be durable and effective for withstanding the hot tropical sun as well as the punishing rainstorms that hit the islands seasonally.

    A Tiki Thatch Roof Adds to Any Outdoor Structure

    Interestingly enough, the distinctive look a tiki thatch roof displays is one that modern homeowners and business owners alike frequently want to duplicate to bring an island feel to a backyard or building exterior. There is no denying that a tropical theme certainly does the job of inspiring a light-hearted, relaxing mood like few other building and decorating techniques can. Plus, you don't necessarily have to turn an entire building into a tiki hut. Just installing thatch on an awning or oversized umbrella is as effective for adding a dash of the tropics to any area you want to make warmer and more inviting.
