Types of Thatch roofing:

The organic appearance of natural and synthetic thatches will meet your desire for a classic, tropical appeal on an outdoor tiki hut or bar. First, you must choose if synthetic or natural thatch is better suited to your purpose. Then, to making your ultimate decision, consider both artificial and natural alternatives.

So, first and foremost, we’ll talk about artificial thatch here.

  • Artificial Thatch

Synthetic roofing is produced from specifically manufactured polymers, as opposed to natural materials made from drying out plants. The use of this material does not distract from the look of the covering but rather serves to increase the lifespan of the thatch. 

HDPE, or high-density polyethylene, is a long-lasting replacement to natural thatch with a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty. The use of this material does not distract from the look, but rather serves to increase the lifespan of the thatch. We also have recyclable plastic and synthetic palm thatch, which resembles natural thatch but lasts longer.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Artificial Thatch:

  • The term “artificial thatch” refers to a substance made from engineered high-density polyethylene, or HDPE. While it is a synthetic material, it is recyclable and requires little to no upkeep. For those searching for a fantastic natural-appearing thatch roof or canopy, this HDPE is an excellent alternative to real thatch.
  • The durability of synthetic thatch is the key to its lifespan. Many natural forces that rip through dried plant matter thatch can be resisted by HDPE material. Sun, rain, and pests do not harm artificial thatch in the same way that they affect natural materials. With fake thatch often having a 20-year lifetime, this option represents an excellent long-term investment.
  • The most common complaint about natural thatch is its vulnerability to damage from the weather and bugs. Natural thatch must be replaced regularly due to the ease with which it may be damaged.

            Now we’re going to talk about natural thatches.

  • Natural thatch 
  • There are three popular varieties of natural thatch: Mexican palm, Tahitian palm, and African Cape Reed thatch. Natural materials such as reed grass or palm fronds are dried and stitched together to produce these roof coverings by KHW solutions. Because We are producing these from plants and there may be minor color variations are trivial.

    • African Cape Reed thatch: The most durable of the most prevalent thatch alternatives, this grass-based version may endure up to ten years in optimum conditions.
    • Mexican palm: Mexican palm thatch is made from dried palm leaves and is perfect for palapas’ roofing.
    • Tahitian palm: When properly cared for and kept in an ideal climate, Tahitian palm thatch, also known as Fiji thatch, may endure up to ten years.

    The Advantages and Disadvantages of Natural Thatch:

                 Natural thatch offers its own set of benefits. Depending on your project, these advantages may

                 make natural thatch a preferable choice:

    • The colors and feel of natural thatch are not comparable to that of the manufactured roof, so you’ll be close to catching it. However, at this close range, the distinctions between natural and manufactured thatch are easily discernible.
    • A Natural thatch also provides insulation. During the summer, it keeps the room beneath it cooler. Areas with a thatched roof seem warmer in the cold. The dried reed grass, which permits hot air to flow up and out of the room, is the key to these effects.
    • The longevity of natural thatch is influenced by your climate and the quantity of maintenance you provide. If you wish to utilize thatch on an umbrella or a Palapa thatch structure, you’ll need to change the sections on a regular basis as they wear out from sun damage, wind, and rain.
    • Natural thatch roofs can last up to a decade, but this is only half the life of synthetic thatch. Natural thatch roofs are not affected by environmental conditions, but manufactured ones are.
