Tiki Hut Maintenance

Rethatching & Repairs

ll genuine tiki huts, Miccosoukee Chikee huts, and thatched gazebos require maintenance. A properly built tiki hut will require less maintenance over its lifespan. Usually, this means re-thatching of the roof and walls (if it has walls) with the appropriate natural materials. Synthetic tiki huts do not require maintenance but lack the ambiance and charm of a real tiki hut.

We warrantee our tiki huts for up to ten years. Dan The Tiki Man thatched huts are built to stand up to even the harshest South Florida weather. Our experienced team also does expert re-thatching and replacement of thatch panels. We will inspect your tiki hut for loose or missing thatch panels. We also check for signs of leaks, mildew, rot, and pests such as termites. We have re-thatched tiki huts, thatched gazebos, and commercial tiki huts throughout South Florida. Our clients include both high-end residential customers and commercial enterprises such as bars and other public venues. We offer an affordable way to extend the life of your thatched hut. We will turn your tired-looking, old tiki hut into a fresh place to unwind in tropical splendor.

We can replace damaged wood. Occasionally we can even replace Florida native cypress poles. We are experts in the process of stripping cypress poles to leave the classic blonde finish, or we can provide expertly carved totem-type poles. Our tiki hut specials have designed and constructed everything from high-thatched buildings for South Florida luxury homes to hospitality and entertainment commercial tiki huts.

Your “Dan The Tiki Man” Tiki Hut Will Last, Beautifully

Your “Dan The Tiki Man” Tiki hut will be built by our employees, not subcontractors. We use top-grade pressure-treated cypress posts with a three-year no drip warranty.

We use only new, green posts to eliminate the risk of termites that is common with older or used posts. The thatch roof will be constructed using full Sabal palm fronds grown in Florida, not cheaper and less weather-resistant varieties or partial fronds used by some of our competitors.

Our Tiki huts are wind and rain resistant and allow hot air to escape, providing cool shade during even the hottest months. Even with the extreme Florida weather, you can expect your “Dan The Tiki Man” Tiki hut thatch roof to last eight to ten years without re-thatching. Most of our competitors’ roofs last less than five years.
