Thatch is a natural grass material that is cut, dried, and fabricated into 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.

Benefits of Thatch Products

Our thatch products offer several benefits, many of which stem from thatch's unique advantages:

Environmentally Friendly

Our natural thatch products are 100% eco-friendly and recyclable. This abundant resource grows quickly and can be found multiple locations around the world. Thatch is affordable and easy to install unlike tile or tar-based roofing. Attach thatch to a tiki bar or umbrella to instantly enhance the appearance of your living space. If you are looking for a green solution, thatch is the best option for your roofing needs.

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 an excellent insulator that helps regulate warm and cool air during different seasons. If properly taken care of, certain types of thatch can last up to 10 years, depending on climate conditions. Proper care will prevent premature damage and help sustain durability.

Types of Thatch Roof Materials

Our thatch products are available in several natural and synthetic materials, including:

Mexican Thatch

Mexican thatch is our most popular thatch product that can be used to make gazebos, umbrellas, palapas, and tiki huts. Each panel, runner, and round 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

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

Tahitian thatch panels are handcrafted with dried palm leaves and held together by commercial grade nylon thread. These panels are made to last approximately 10 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.

Artificial Thatch

Our Art and Viro thatch products are made from 100% recyclable high density polyethylene (HDPE) materials that require no upkeep after installation. These products can last 20 years and beyond, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How often do you need to replace a thatched roof?

A: The answer depends on the thatching material and how well you take care of your thatch. As a general rule of thumb, faux thatch material requires less frequent care and replacement than natural thatch. No matter what kind of thatch you use, it will need less upkeep than a straw roof that lacks thatch's natural protection.

Q: What life expectancy can I expect from thatch roofing?

A: Your thatch's longevity depends on its material and your area's climate. For example, while a thatched reed roof can last eight to 10 years depending on climate, natural palm thatch has a lifespan of three to five years. Read about each variety in detail on our category pages to learn more about their life expectancies.

Q: How long does it take to install a thatch roof?

A: Our thatch products offer moderate ease of installation by coming in precut panels. Depending on your skill level and roof frame, the process can take anywhere from an afternoon to a few sessions.
