3 steps installation

DIY installation is quick and easy, in only 3 steps

  • Schéma d'installation de toiture synthétique, étape #1 - Boutique Palmex

    1. Start the installation

    Place the first row of leaves starting in the lower left corner, 20 cm from the bottom edge of the roof. The leaves should always overlap by 3 cm. They should be secured with 4 nails spaced at equal distances, then with 2 more nails 15 cm from the top of the leaf.

    2. Continue the rows

    For each even row, cut one leaf in half (top to bottom) with a utility knife and use this leaf to start the row. Place the leaves 20 cm above the previous row and always overlap the leaves by 3 cm on top of each other.

    3. Finalize the installation

    For a linear roof, fold the leaves of the last row at least 12 cm to the other side of the roof and nail them there. Do this for each side of the roof.

    For a pointed roof, cut leaves in half and attach the leaf halves to the edge every 20 cm from the bottom to the top of the roof.

What type of membrane is recommended for waterproofing?

Palmita is not guaranteed to be waterproof. However, to enjoy waterproofing with the Palmita roof, we recommend installing a self-adhesive waterproofing membrane first. Visit a hardware store for proper advice.

Who can I contact for a turnkey installation?

You can contact one of our distributors. It will be able to help you with the installation of your roof. For special projects, you can directly contact a distributor to take charge of your project from A to Z, including even the construction of a custom structure.

Is the roof resistant to different weather conditions?

Palmita roof is heat, snow and wind resistant. Made of HDPE (high-density polyethylene), Palmita does not conduct heat or cold.

We do not guarantee the watertightness of the Palmita roof, as it results from the installation made. However, the addition of a waterproofing membrane will ensure the roof is waterproof.

Does the color change over time?

The leaves are certified UV protected. However, the color will be slowly changed over the long term by the sun's rays. This fading will be minimal and will not affect the quality of the product.
