About Palm Thatch

Thatch roofing is constructed from the leaves of palm trees. Palm leaves have evolved in nature to withstand the sun, the rain, and gale force winds. Thatching takes advantage of natures design: the palm leaves are cured, made into strips, and are then woven in rolls or panels. Palm leaves also have great insulation properties and keeps structures cooler than ones built with traditional materials. Palm thatch roofing is not just a beautiful functional roofing material, it also happens to be a highly renewable resource whose only processing requirements are boiled water and the warmth of the sun.

 

Thatching Applications

Palm leaf thatch, also known as rain cape, is used in applications such as tiki bars, awnings, palapas, and huts. Thatch is easily secured to surfaces or supports by simply stapling and overlapping each panel. Palm leaf thatch will last 3-5years depending on the climate but can last up to 7+ years in dryer climates. At more than 1 inch thick, Brazilian thatch is completely waterproof and will last 10-15 years and is ideal for commercial applications.
