A single pole palapa umbrella is an easy way to add that tropical touch to your yard. These umbrellas are designed to be cemented into the ground or anchored into a bar or barbeque island. Tropical Shade Imports offers certain umbrella sizes as Do-It-Yourself Kits, as well as as installed projects that we can install for you. There are four roof materials to choose from — Baja thatch, Fiji thatch, and African Reed thatch, and synthetic thatch.
We offer a limited selection of do-it-yourself kits online. Online prices apply for online orders ONLY.
Our kits are easily assembled by a handy person, comfortable with the use of a hand-drill and a staple gun. Our umbrella kits include partially pre-drilled and pre-assembled framing, main support poles, hardware, and the thatch for the roof. Step-by-step instructions are provided with every kit. Don’t forget to check out our upgrades! We offer various upgrades to personalize your palapa to your style and needs. We ship kits nearly everywhere in the US or, you can pre-order and pick-up your kit at our San Diego showroom.
All of the palapa sizes are offered to the public as installations from the ground up, by a licensed & insured contractor. Kits, unfortunately, are only offered in limited sizes, due to their complexity and size. Both installed projects and kits have various upgrades to choose from. Nylon netting or matted waterproof interiors, bamboo-style, stained, hand-carved center poles or carved bamboo-style poles and supports, are all desirable upgrades you can add to improve your palapa. Tabletops can be added to fit around the column pole and installed at any desired height. We offer a variety of styles, finishes, and colors to choose from.
ALL OF OUR PALAPA'S ARE CUSTOM MADE TO ORDER PLEASE CALL FOR PRICING.
