This is an organic material and life expectancy will vary. It is recommended to rinse the thatching twice a month with hose. Thatching may change color over time; transforming from green to gold, then settling on a subtle ash-brown.When properly installed, the hand-woven Palapa Thatch can endure high winds. Palapa Thatch is hand-woven and contains tiny air holes, permitting circulation instead of creating resistance.
