Thatch is a natural grass material that is cut, dried, and made into a waterproof roofing material. For centuries, thatch has been used around the world to build palapas, huts, tiki bars, and more. Today, thatch remains a popular product not only for its aesthetic appeal, but also for its sustainability and durability. We have developed new thatch products based on our customers individual needs and continue to improve our inventory each year. Container pricing and quantity discounts are also available through our store.
If you’re looking to enhance your backyard into a tropical escape paradise, thatch is a great option that has many positive benefits.
Natural Climate Control
Thatch is a cost effective roofing material that provides ample shade and insulation to your building structure. The leaves that make up the thatched roof allow hot air to flow in an upward direction reducing heat and humidity. Thatch is a great insulator that helps regulate warm and cool air during different seasons. The tightly woven leaves also prevent rain from seeping through the thatch roofing. If properly taken care of, certain types of thatch can last up to 10 years. Proper maintenance will prevent pre-mature damage and help sustain durability.

Mexican thatch is our most popular thatch product that can be used to make gazebos, umbrellas, palapas, and tiki huts. Each panel, runner, and umbrella cover is thoroughly woven together from large palm leaves that have been dried in the sun. The length and size can also be altered by cutting Mexican thatch products with a sharp scissor or razor blade. Mexican thatch is an eco-friendly and cost effective material with many different functions.
African thatch panels are constructed from 100% cape reed grass and can last 8-10 years depending on the climate of your area. The natural hues of greens, browns, and golden yellows match beautifully as a roofing structure for tiki bars and umbrellas. Our African thatch panels are commonly used in commercial settings, such as beach resorts and theme parks. Installation is effortless and easy with our pre-assembled panels.
Tahitian thatch panels are handcrafted with dried palm leaves and held together by commercial grade nylon thread. These panels are made to last about 10-15 years with the proper care and climate conditions. This natural material has a mix of light tan and gray colors that look great on gazebos and tiki bars. Create a tropical ambiance around your yard or pool area with our eco-friendly Tahitian thatch panels.
Our Art and Viro thatch products are made from 100% recyclable polyethylene materials that require no maintenance after installation. These products can last up to 20 years and are pest and mold resistant. Artificial thatch is easy to install compared to natural thatch products and is equally cost effective. Use artificial thatch as roofing for building structures, umbrellas, tiki bars, and palapas.
Fire Retardant Safety
Some of our thatch products are not fire rated. We recommend applying a flame retardant spray to ensure thatch products do not catch on fire. Consult your local fire marshal before using flame retardant. For more information on thatch safety and fire retardant applications, visit www.thatchsafe.info.
