Custom Thatch, Framing, and Repair

The thatch and framing of your tiki hut or tiki bar are not so much a detail as they are essentials that can not be overlooked or done quickly. Not only will a correctly framed and thatched hut by Oasis Tiki Huts give off the perfect island vibe, but a solid, well built roof will provide years of stability and safety to your backyard island getaway.

Tiki thatch is a combination of straw and palm leaves that is woven together and tied into a pressure treated or cypress frame. Thatch is one of the oldest forms of a roof and it will protect you from the extreme weather. During the summer, your thatch roof will behave like insulation, drawing the heat away from your tiki hut. In the cooler winter months, a thatch roof will trap the heat inside and you can enjoy your tiki hut or bar without a big, uncomfortable winter jacket.

Oasis Tiki Huts are showcases of what proper framing should be. For a standard four pole hut, six to eight inch thick legs reach from the ground up. Connected to that are poles known as the headers. These are typically four to six inches in diameter. From there, the hips extend from each corner to the center of the tiki hut or tiki bar and provide the height you desire. Smaller pieces called ribs are layered horizontally across the hips. The thatch is attached to these ribs. When done correctly, as the experts of Oasis Tiki Huts have done for years, the end result is a well built tiki hut or tiki bar.

When you trust Oasis Tiki Huts to build your backyard getaway, we care about safety and proper techniques as much as we do about aesthetics. You can rest easy knowing that your tiki hut was built the right way and built to last when you chose Oasis Tiki Huts.
