Home owners, restaurants, and hotels often use thatch roofing to enhance the authenticity of a tropical atmosphere. Thatching is a time-honored practice that is used for roof-making in tropical settings. It involves tying or sewing palm leaves or reeds together in tight fashion to create a rather impermeable roof. Its distinctive look can add tropical flair to any outdoor living area or patio. It is the ideal material for many homeowners to decorate with. Here a few things to consider when looking for thatch roofing material.
Choose Your Style
First, you should consider the style of thatch roofing that will fit the look you want. There are a few types of thatch and all of them have a very distinctive look. Tahitian thatch looks far different than Mexican thatch and African thatch. Tahitian thatch has more of a grayish color while Mexican and African thatch are golden brown. African thatch is more firm and straight, while Mexican thatch has fluff. There is also the option of authentic thatch or synthetic. Get the thatch roofing that fits the look and feel you desire.
