Natural thatch is beautiful, affordable and authentic. However, synthetic thatch roofing is a great alternative, particularly for those who are willing to pay a slightly higher price for material that will last several years longer.
Synthetic palm or reed thatch has a proven lifespan of up to 20 years, which means it lasts decades longer than natural thatch.
