Palm thatch and tiki thatch are constructed by taking natural palm leaves that have been matured and tested for strength, durability and longevity and making them into strips then curing them. The final product is then produced into what we call "thatch" to make a number of different thatch products.
Palm Thatch AKA Tiki Thatch Rolls, Thatch Runners, or Thatch Ridge Cap Rolls is made with 100% renewable dried palm leaves that leave the tree unharmed in the process. It is one of the most traditional thatches used in many different cultures. This material is perfect for many roofing projects including tiki hut roofs and tiki bar roofs. The material is popular because the multiple layers of palm leaves increases its effectiveness in locking out rain, moisture, and dirt. If cared for, palm thatch can last up to 5 years.
Palm thatch is one of the oldest and most reliable and durable products. The creation and use of palm thatching is a very old tradition that has been passed on from several generations. The kind of grass matters when it comes to thatching; finer dry grasses are more suitable than thicker stemmed grasses. It is a very popular style for roofing used by commercial builders in tropical locations, as it is very easy to handle and install.
Our palm thatch products allow you to have a smart alternative, which is equal to, or better than modern standard roofing materials. It provides warmth in the winter seasons and can withstand harsh weather conditions such as extreme rainfall, heat and wind. It is also used as a natural alternative for insulation.
Another great thing about palm thatching is that it is made using eco-friendly practices. Harvesting palm thatch instead of wood products will help to preserve our forests and minimize pollution.
This particular product is extremely reliable (if maintained properly), practical, and attractive and will revamp any outdoor space. If you are looking for an eco-friendly, and effective roofing DIY project, then palm thatch is right for you.
