What is SynThatch®..?

“The Most Believable Architectural Thatch Roof Veneer In The World”

In 1988, Master Thatch artisan Val Deer was the first to create artificial thatch roofing.
“We created the industry as it is known today, we are the first company in America to become licensed and certified in the thatch roofing industry.”
Val personally authored the requirements for Thatch Roof installation and inspection guidelines, those guidelines were made law and remain in effect unchanged.
In other words “We Set The Thatch Roofing Standards in America” The first certified thatch roofer in the US. Certification/ license number is #1. Val authored the installation and inspection  guideline book that all thatch roofing companies must follow to be certified as a Thatch Roofer.
SynThatch® Is The Most Believable Architectural Thatch Roof Veneer In The World, with a flexible binder that allows it to be installed effortlessly.
SynThatch®... Is Superior. 
Is a ASTM/UL Class-A rated product that meets the highest standards, including the highly sought after ASTM E-108 Class-A fire rating and the Metro-Dade County protocol for hurricane-force wind-driven rain – the most stringent standards in the world. With our flexible binder, SynThatch® installs up to 60% faster than our old product with the stainless-steel-binder, and is a non-conductive product in the event of a lightning storm.
