Why artificial thatch roofs make sound business sense

It’s often a matter of debate among architects, builders, and project owners: which thatch roof is better – natural or synthetic? Though your budget, personal preferences, and site conditions play a key role in deciding the choice, synthetic thatch roofs have indeed emerged as the better option.
Below are the key points of distinction that demonstrate why synthetic thatch roofs symbolize greater value for money.

Natural thatch roofs require frequent cutting of vegetation such as grass and palm, which is detrimental to the envi-ronment. Moreover, palm is a protected species in many countries today, and just cannot be cut up for roofing.
On the other hand, synthetic thatch roofs are made from 100% recyclable material (HDPE) and also do not rot or leach during use. Hence they turn out to be the definitive eco-friendly option.
Natural thatch roofs require costly repairs and maintenance, as they are prone to water seepage, fire, and structural deformity. For instance, natural thatch roofing can easily catch fire in the intensely hot climate of Rajasthan and can make guests uncomfortable with wetness and dampness in the torrential downpour of Goa or Kerala.

WinRoyal Synthetic Thatch roofs are designed for greater safety and better comfort. They are available in a special fire retardant variety (FR Series), which ensures our artificial thatch roofs will never catch fire due to heat stroke in the enervating heat of Rajasthan or Delhi. They are even immune to low intensity wildfires or bush fires, which usually occur in grasslands or areas featuring dry vegetation.
Though it may sound exaggerated, our artificial thatch roofs will remain intact even in the Sahara region, where the midday sun fries the brains like eggs…
Furthermore, WinRoyal Synthetic Roofs are leak proof, can withstand heavy winds, and retain their original colour and shine despite continual, prolonged exposure to the elements.
Our artificial thatch roofs can also withstand the heavy rainfall and tornado type winds prevalent during monsoons in the coastal belts of Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, and any other place straddling the coastline.
Natural thatch roofs attract insects and birds of all kinds, making the space dirty as well as unhealthy. This necessitates frequent cleaning and disinfection, not to mention the inconvenience caused to guests. Occupants may also have to put up with bites from creatures, leading to skin infection or other medical conditions as well.
Synthetic thatch roofs do not attract any type of creatures, thus eliminating the possibility of health conditions arising due to bites or the space being unhygienic. Also, there is no need for frequent cleaning, thus reducing maintenance cost considerably.
Natural thatch roofs need replacement every three years. Being a labour intensive process, it is both costly as well as tedious work. Contrast this with artificial thatch roofs, which have a life expectancy of 40 years and usually come with a warranty of 20 years. You thus benefit from a handsome return on investment, which eventually shows up as reduced project costs and higher profitability.
WinRoyal Synthetic Thatch Roofs, which are economical, eco-safe, elegant, and easy to install, are the best alternative to natural thatch roofs. No wonder they are finding widespread use in zoos, amusement parks, resorts, beach shacks, tiki cottages, tiki bars, and private villas right across India.
