Something about Thatch

Having a thatched roof just brings about feelings of being relaxed and reminds you of lazy days on a tropical beach while on vacation.


Thatch, also know as rain cape, is usually used in applications such as tiki bars, tropical huts and palapas. Thatch is a very old roofing choice that has been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. If you visit a third world country, you will see that thatch is still used in their daily lives. If you visit an isolated town or village in an Asian country, you will see that most houses are made out of thatch. Nowadays, thatch is also the choice of affluent people who desire a rustic look for their home or yards. Palm thatching roof is not just a beautiful functional roofing material, it is also a highly renewable resource.


Normally, thatch will not require frequent maintenance. It is naturally weather-resistant, and if properly maintained will not absorb lots of water. In some areas, thatch is constructed from palm leaves with strength and durability to withstand sun, rain, wind and other harsh environments. A thatched roof can ensure that the building will be cool in summer and warm in winter.
