Thatch roofing has been a common view during old times. From house to buildings, everything was thatch-roofed. But nowadays we don’t see much of thatch-roofed buildings as the roofing techniques have evolved much. 

Thatches are actually dried grass or straws arranged accordingly on the roof. This process of Thatching is an art and for a well-thatched roof, it has to be arranged properly. 

Though Thatching seems to be a pretty easy task as thatching materials are available easily, the truth is it has got many cons. As the thatches, for what we call the materials needed for thatching is an organic material, it is subjected to decay. That is, it is quite obvious that the thatches, after few months of installing will eventually fall for ruin. 

The difficulty to change these thatches frequently once it is destroyed is a task. From finding new thatches to installing them perfectly is complex way especially for the new age.

Synthetic thatches or artificial thatches resolve these limitations of thatches. They look exactly like the natural thatches but are more efficient and easy to use than them. 

Nowadays we find more of these thatched roofs in resorts and hotels. They create a tropical vibe and gives a vintage touch. This kind of fulfills the aesthetics of these buildings. 

The tale of artificial thatched roofs doesn’t stop there; perhaps it has only begun. Artificial thatched roofs come in innovations and newness that will surprise everyone. KHW Solutions will give you a complete insight into this.

Synthetic thatches are preferable in many aspects. Natural thatches catch fire quickly. They aren’t waterproof and they pass heat. This is a threat and for all these reasons natural thatches cannot rely on every weather. 

But this is not the case with synthetic and artificial thatches. They have properties to resist fire and heat and water.   

Apart from resorts and hotels, water theme parks and amusement parks have also adapted to thatched roofs. The waterproof thatched roofs benefit them much. Their waterproof or water-resisting properties will help to get long-lasting materials for the park.

Cape reed which is a natural thatch has got natural water resisting properties. Tropical thatch, another material from cape reed also has the natural properties of waterproof. Natural thatch which has a combination with synthetic thatches also gives waterproofing quality. But these materials don’t give complete waterproof features. Meanwhile, fiber palm and fiber thatch, which are synthetic thatches assure hundred percentage waterproofing qualities. Other than these thatches, one way to make thatches waterproof is by adding water-repellent materials like the coating. But the truth is that thatch roof which assures a hundred percentage water-resisting is available in the market right now.           

Plastic waterproof thatched roofs are made of non-toxic plastic. They are eco-friendly. These materials are of low maintenance. They can stay up to twenty years.  

Apart from the water, these provide resistance from fire and heat too. The normal destruction from pests in the original natural thatch roofs won’t be a problem in these synthetic roofs with water resistance properties. 

These thatches are available as tiles with clippings. So unlike these natural thatches, they are easy to install and maintain. They are also available at feasible costs.
