Plastic Thatch roofing can be used in place of natural thatch and other metal alternatives. Plastic thatch lasts longer than natural thatch and provides the added environmental benefit of being made by recycling PET bottles.
Natural thatch is often replaced with solid roofing products (such as metal or fiberglass roofing) that create very hot, dark, and uncomfortable interior spaces. Plastic thatch can match the durability of metal, and its translucency allows for brighter, more useful and productive interior spaces. Furthermore, plastic thatch provides superior ventilation similar to natural thatch, and a quiet, secure roofing solution in tropical rain.
Plastic thatch roofs can be made anywhere PET bottled beverages are found.
