Returns on Bamboo poles and Bamboo products: Bamboo poles and bamboo products are not returnable or exchangeable and are considered final sale. Since bamboo poles and fences are natural products, it is normal to have some cracks in the poles. Safari Thatch Inc is not able to process a return or exchange for cracked poles or fences. Note that since bamboo is a natural product, we cannot guarantee consistency with any of our bamboo products.

A: Most of our products are either natural and/or handmade. Natural and handmade products will always have some inconsistencies that add unique characteristics and charm.

A: No. Cracking is a natural characteristic of bamboo that happens during changes in temperature/climate. Cracks in the bamboo should not affect the integrity of the poles; if you have any concerns, please reach out to us at email@example.com and include photos. Our bamboo is considered final sale and we do not accept returns or exchange requests made due to natural cracking. If it appears that your order was damaged in transit, please see our Returns and Exchanges section for more information on how to proceed.
Q: How do I care for my Bamboo Poles & Bamboo Fencing?
A: We recommend sealing your bamboo with Marine Premium Wood Sealer to protect your bamboo’s color and to protect against mold, fungi, and mildew. We recommend applying the sealant every few years (depending on your area’s climate) to maintain its protection and rejuvenate a fading fence.
Q: How many wires are in your Bamboo Fencing?
Q: If I find your items on another site, can you price match?
A: No, unfortunately we cannot price match other sites’ listings. We are a small, family-owned company and cannot always match the prices of big-box stores.
Q: I bought something on sale, and I want to order more of the product. Can the discounted price be applied to my order?
A: Discounted price will depend on the sale. If you are wanting to place another order shortly after the sale has ended, we may be able to honor the discount depending on the item and inventory levels. Please reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org. to inquire.
