Cost Of Applying Flame Retardant To Natural Thatch

Bromine Flame Retardants

Have you ever wondered just how much it costs to apply flame retardant to a natural thatch roof? Keep in mind when factoring in prices, most Class A flame retardant chemicals require reapplication to natural thatch roofs every two years. On average, when comparing a variety of different chemical solutions for minimizing thatch roof fire risks and complying with building codes, you’ll need to apply three coats to your thatch roof every two years. That will give you satisfactory coverage of the flame retardant chemical to comply with building codes.

The financial cost of this is around $60 per 150 square feet of roof. For a roof that with a mere 5,000 square feet of surface area, you’re looking a c couple thousand dollars every two years just to make sure it doesn’t catch fire! That’s on top of the $10 per square foot costs of changing out palm fronds as needed when they rot or blow out of place.
