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.

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!
