We get it! You often try to incorporate thatch roofing in your design concepts, bids, or in your personal DIY projects. You’re either met with resistance or fear, especially when you suggest a synthetic thatch roofing solution. Guess what? We’ve all been tricked by false truths– or ideas we have heard so often, we just accept them as fact. For instance, drinking eight glasses of water a day may seem like a good idea, but it doesn’t do a bit of good for your health. Likewise, synthetic thatch roofing has had its share of false claims, and it is time to set the record straight!
1. Installation Takes Too Long!
A common misconception is that synthetic thatch roofing takes longer to install than natural thatch. This is 100% false! An average Endureed synthetic thatch install requires nearly 50% less time on installation. You know what that means! You save time AND money! That’s a WIN WIN in our book!
2. It’s Not Durable!
Synthetic thatch is actually 10X more durable than natural thatch! And what does this mean? Less environmental impact, for one! Natural thatch not only carries significant fire threats, but also turns gray or even black if it’s not properly and expensively maintained. Our premium synthetic thatch is made from a high-grade PVC compound allowing for 20 years of protection against rot, decay, color-fade, and UV deterioration! How can we top that? Easy! We will recycle our products when they have reached the end of their life cycle. When you compare that to a time intensive and high cost maintenance plan? We are sure that you too, will fall in love with this remarkable product and see how it almost sells itself to your clients!
3. It Looks Fake!
We’ve all seen ‘that’ thatch. That plastic, dead, shriveled up banana look? Well, here is some real feedback from one of our customers for you to consider:
“I have never been a fan of synthetic thatch as I always found it to look thin and unrealistic. We wanted an aged African style thatch for our African Village. The thatch looks completely realistic and I could not be happier with the end result. We often hear people say, “It’s fake? But it looks so real!”” Rick Schwartz, Nashville Zoo
