Having a good roof is essential in Costa Rica for several reasons. As you know, Costa Rica experiences a tropical climate, which means heavy rainfall and high humidity levels. A well-constructed roof helps protect homes from water leaks and potential damage caused by frequent rain. This is important as water leaks can lead to mold growth and structural problems, impacting the integrity of the building.

Additionally, a good roof provides shade and insulation, helping to regulate indoor temperature and reduce energy consumption. With Costa Rica’s warm climate, having a roof that efficiently keeps the heat out is crucial for maintaining a comfortable living space.

Lastly, having a good roof is essential for the preservation of cultural and historical sites in Costa Rica. The country is home to numerous architectural gems, such as colonial-era buildings and ancient structures. A well-maintained roof helps protect these cultural treasures from deterioration and decay caused by weather elements. By ensuring that these roofs are in good condition, Costa Ricans can preserve their cultural heritage and historical legacy for future generations to appreciate and learn from.

Let our work and clients speak about us:

Our Palmex roof really makes the whole look and feel of our house and we feel that it is a very high-quality material and the installation was professionally done.  We had planned on a roof of tin, insulation, and teak… a fairly standard choice in our area, but made a late decision to use Palmex.  I cannot imagine this house without Palmex and we are so happy that we made the right decision.  When I am in a neighbor’s house with a tin roof and the rain starts coming down it sounds like a Jamaican steel drum marching band and I can’t wait to sit in my house and quietly watch the rain fall.  Palmex has so many benefits in the tropics.  Thanks!

Thank you again, we couldn’t be happier with the new roof!-John Chantry, Tiki Vibez Villas, Tres Rios


Tonight we had neighbors visiting and they are so excited about the Palmex!  In addition, the engineer for our architect was here today and he asked us to provide him with your information.  He thinks the product is beautiful.

-Best regards, Mary and Lee Addleman


The roof is looking great! Of course, as you can imagine, already there have been many admiring passers-by. Who knew that putting on a roof would pull in so many new acquaintances?
