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

Palmita roofing is guaranteed for a period of 10 years. However, the lifespan is as long as 20 years, thanks to the quality of the material used.
The Palmita roof is heat, snow and wind resistant. Made of HDPE (high density polyethylene), the 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 that the roof is watertight.
The leaves are certified UV protected. However, the color will slowly change over time due to the sun's rays. This discoloration will be minimal and will not affect the quality of the product.
