A thatched roof completes any palapa or tiki hut structure and invites a tropical atmosphere to your backyard. Tiki thatch is an affordable alternative to wood or tile roofing materials and is also eco-friendly. Mexican palm thatch in particular is the most popular type of thatching material and can be found on most resort style tiki huts. Constructed from dried palm leaves, thatch is carefully hand woven to create a durable product that is ideal for commercial and home installation. Tahitian thatch also closely resembles traditional Mexican thatch and is often used to cover island themed structures. In general, thatch has excellent insulation qualities making for a smart choice when it comes to covering your outdoor structure. If two or more layers of tiki thatch are applied, the majority of rain will be repelled since thatch keeps most structures dry.
Create a Tropical Escape with Tiki Thatch
Tiki thatch is the best way to create a tropical escape in your very own living space or commercial business. Hawaiian themed parties can also benefit from tiki thatch and can be used as table skirting for decoration purposes. Thatch is not limited to palapa structures or tiki bars; it can also be installed on umbrellas, awnings, and more. If you are looking for longevity, artificial thatch is another eco-friendly alternative that replicates the authentic look of natural thatch. Artificial thatch is naturally pest and mold resistant requiring little maintenance when used on solid surface structures. Not only is thatch affordable, it is easy to apply and can be installed with a staple gun, nails, or zip ties. Mexican thatch has a lifespan of 3-5 years depending on the location and weather conditions. It is recommended to install at least 2 layers of thatch to properly seal the roof of a solid surface structure.
