Would you like to see how to install an island-style thatched roof using state-of-the art synthetic thatch? If you want to replicate the look of a thatched roof that you might find on a Hawaiian island, you will want to check this out.

Kona is part of Endureed’s Regions series. It is made to look and feel like Pili Grass and Asian Alang-Alang grass thatching. Kona was made to have a blend of both small grass reeds and broad wide leaves. This mixture gives Kona a textured, tropical look.

This product would be perfect on an accessory building near the beach or pool, on a beachfront house, or at an island resort. If you are a roofer, check out the video below. Then, see just how simple the installation actually is.

Please note that this installation technique is also typical for other products in the Regions series. It is also a similar installation for the Dominica and Bali synthetic thatch products too.
