Gulf Coast Palapas, Tiki Huts and Deck Builders are all custom built on the job site by the most advanced and professional Palapa builders in the Houston and Galveston Bay Area. We are committed to giving our customers the highest quality of workmanship and materials, in a timely manner, with competitive pricing. Each Palapa is a hands-on job in which we follow through from preconstruction to completion. For the structure of our Palapas, the poles and framework, we use only the highest quality Cedar for its longevity and durability. Our competitors use pine, which retains water and rots quickly. Our leaves are individually secured into place to maintain resistance from any windstorm or hurricane.

Wouldn’t you love to bring the best of Mexico or the Bahamas directly to your home or business? Picture yourself or your customers lounging comfortably in the shade under your very own Palapa just as if you were on vacation. Gulf Coast Palapas can paint and build that exact picture because we are the true Palapa builders. We strive for excellence in every project to meet our clients’ needs and goals.

We also sell we sell fronds, individual leaves for the do-it-yourselfers to help with your repairs. We do retops too...repairing damaged thatched roofs.

Check out our synthetic Thatch Roofing now available.

Gulf Coast Palapas constructs our Palapas with all cedar! Our competitors use pine, which does not come close to the quality of cedar. Pine is not naturally resistant to rot or insects, such as termites. Cedar naturally produces preservatives that make it one of the most decay and rot resistant of woods, as well as insect tolerant. As for humidity, large cracks in pine are common because of the higher moisture content. Cedar has a much lower moisture content, which has minimal cracking. There is no comparison!

We are pleased to offer Authentic Mexican Style Palapas and entertainment centers for use at:
• Beach houses
• Lake houses
• Swimming Pools
• Patio Areas
• Tropical Landscape Areas

Palacios, TX. Residential Palapa


Charles,

Good afternoon. I wanted to THANK YOU and your team for building that best Palapa that I have ever seen. This Palapa has far exceeded my expectations. All of you staff and work crews were very professional and prompt with all aspects of construction. The quality is second to none. My family and friends will enjoy this masterpiece for many years to come. Everyone that has seen it so far has been as amazed as I am. We really love it.

Thanks for everything,

Mike Shumard
Proud Palapa Owner

What an awesome job!
You guys are wonderful and I tell everyone. Of course, I don't have to tell my visitors, after their jaws close, they ask...
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I am pleased.

Beautiful Palapa play area and swing set

Been almost a year since you installed our palapa and thought you might like to see how it looks. We were just looking for something to shade our bar area, but there is now a place to hang out all day long. When told, many of our friends had already seen your store off the highway and at least one now has a Gulf Coast Palapa of their own.

Great job!
