Alang Alang is a natural grass which comes from the Indonesian islands and has been used for hundreds of years on the island of Bali as a traditional form of roofing.

Alang-alang is made from the grass Imperata Cylindrica.

It is a very attractive and long-lasting roofing material that can last up to 15 years depending on the climate although the usual life-span is around eight to ten years.
Until now, Alang Alang is still made in the same traditional way and is often constructed using bamboo rafters, although nowadays timber is becoming more common.
Alang Alang is very durable, acts as a great insulation against the heat and is also very attractive to look at, both from the inside and out.
It requires no finishing or maintenance however a few coats with thatch coat will protected it from our harsh UVs, prolonging its lifespan from breaking down as well as enhancing its appearance.
Check out our thatch coat for more information.

Pre-cut Vs Pre-assembled Kits


Timber roof beams, rafters and hips are pre-cut to their specified roof pitch and pre drilled ready for assembly. This is the entry level of every DIY gazebo kit out there on the Market & an important question to ask when shopping around.

DIY Gazebo and Bali Huts take it to the next level. We take the Pre-cut pieces and physically assemble the entire Timber roof frame on our warehouse floor. This allows us to measure all rafter spacings, accurately cut all roof battens, label the structure in our unique numbering sequence and sort out any unforeseen issues before it is sent out to you.

Once complete we dis-assemble and either send it to the staining department or pack it into a flatpack ( depending on your options) Ready for transport or Pickup.

NOTE:  Roof sheeting is not cut to size. It is required to be cut onsite once frame has been installed for it to be 100% accurate.
