Our company has been in the palapa and thatching business since 1986.
As licensed contractors servicing restaurants, zoos, casinos and homeowners
in California, Arizona and Nevada, we touched a nerve in the Southwest,
helping to satisfy the desire held by many to bring home a piece of
the tropics. Tropical Shade has worked with some of Nevada's most
famous casinos and under membership of the American Zoological Association,
has thatched major theme park and zoo projects.
Located in San Diego, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada, we maintain
our showrooms and we continue to provide thatching services, as well
as sell a variety of related materials such as bamboo, wall coverings,
fencing, matting, lighting and more.
Through the years we have designed different thatched structures
(commonly referred to as palapas, grass huts or cabanas) and continue
to offer installation services in parts of Southern California and
Nevada. In response to requests from individuals who wanted to build
their own palpas, in 1998 we introduced our palapa kits, complete
with pre-woven thatch, all parts and installation instructions.
The many thank you's from satisfied customers tells us that we're
doing the right thing. We invite you to browse our site and imagine
what it would feel like to "Bring Home the Tropics."
