FAQs About Tahiti thatch:
Can I install the Tahiti Thatch Top Cones directly onto an existing roof?
Absolutely, however we do recommend you attach a wooden lattice made of horizontal then vertical firing strips to the roof first. This allows ventilation and drainage around the thatch which increases the longevity of the product if it is able to �breathe�.
Can you suggest what I should use at the top of my umbrella?
Tiki Shack supplies the Tahiti panels which match the Tahiti Thatch Top Cones. This is a great way to finish off the structure giving the umbrella an island flare.
Can the Tahiti Thatch Cones be fire retarded?
Yes. In order to receive a Fire Retardant Certificate for your Fire Marshal, Tiki Shack can either pre-fire retarded the Tahiti Thatch Panels to a class A rating and then ship, or our applicators can fire retard your structure on site after thatching is complete. If you choose to apply the fire retardant yourself, this can be purchased from Tiki Shack Importer but we would not be able to issue a certificate.
