What is the actual lifespan of a thatched roof made from natural African cape reed? Manufacturers of natural cape reed tiles report varied lifespans. Some state that their product will last 5-12 years. Yet, others say 8-10 years. Of course, these manufacturers also note that the lifespans may not be that long either. The life of a natural, African cape reed thatched roof varies depending on sun exposure, wind exposure, and other natural outdoor situations.

Our synthetic African cape reed thatch is made from an eco-friendly material. It is 100 percent recyclable and made partly from recycled materials. Sun won’t harm it. It can survive strong storms. Termites, birds, mice and other thatch pests won’t live in it or destroy it. It’s even tested against severe hail and flames, performing optimally. Plus, you can have our Capetown synthetic thatch product installed in any climate.

Plus, we have a 20 year warranty on our products, though you can expect them to look great much longer than that!
