Tropical Thatch Roof

What Are the Benefits of a Tropical Thatch Roof?

At Tiki Huts, we provide our clients with some of the best tiki huts and thatched roofs available. Why do we do this? There are many reasons why our clients seek out these roofs, and all of them are worthwhile. If you are considering whether or not this is the right choice for you, there are a few key things you’ll want to consider here with a tropical thatch roof.


Eco-Friendly Benefits


Many people who seek out tiki hut roofs do so because of the environmental benefits. We make many of our roofs out of palm, a plant that is easily and quickly replenished. Because this is such an accessible product in many tropical areas, they have long been used. You are not doing anything to the environment to use this natural component for your roofing, especially when compared to asphalt shingles, for example.


Weather Resistant


A tropical thatched roof is also one of the most protective surfaces available. It is a naturally weather-resistant material. That means it does not absorb a lot of water into it. On a well-designed roof, the water simply runs off of it like you would find on other structures. It is possible to build thatched roofs in both warm and cold climates because of just how weather resistant these materials can be. In cold climates, they act as a natural insulator due to the pockets of air that form within them.


Air Cooling and Circulation Benefits


Tiki hut roofs are also very good at insulating areas. However, they are also a very easy way to reduce temperatures. Depending on the design created, the temperature under one of these roofs can be 10 to 15 degrees cooler. During the hot summer months, this is an easy way for you to keep areas cool. And, as a result, there is less need to run expensive air conditioning.


Long Lasting Materials


Our tiki huts are designed to last. When you call on our professionals for these roofs, recognize they are by far one of the best roofs out there today. With little maintenance, they will last for decades. You do not have to worry about them wearing down or exposing your space, either.
