Synthetic Thatch To Avoid

Below are various photos of Synthetic Thatch manufactured by a variety of manufactures from all over the world as alternative options for natural thatch. Sadly there are literally hundreds of extrusion companies wanting to “make a quick buck”. Resorts, hotels and house owners with natural thatch wanting to get away from the problems associated with natural thatch, will often, without a proper investigation, invest in synthetic thatch, believing that any synthetic thatch will solve their problems. For the sake of saving as little as $2 to $5 per square meter they will gamble and buy this inferior synthetic thatch. Fiber Thatch manufacturer a product with a 20 year warrenty that will assure peace of mind for the resorts, hotels and house owners alike.
