Onduline is a flexible, lightweight, corrugated roof sheeting solution made from organic fibres saturated in bitumen and pressurised under extreme heat. Onduline has been in production and use since 1950 and was originally a product of France.
Onduline roof sheeting is:
- Cost effective - requires minimal care and maintenance
- Lightweight and therefore suitable for a wide range of small and large structures
- Flexible - has the ability to bend and shape around any roofing structure
- Attractive - available in four colours
- Durable and strong - doesn't become brittle or rust and is resistant to rot and fungi
- Waterproof - guaranteed waterproof for 7 years
- Corrosion resistant
- UV resistant
Onduline provides weather protection as well as thermal insulation even in extreme temperatures and conditions.
Unlike many corrugated roof products no asbestos is used in onduline resulting in a safe and lightweight roofing solution for both roof fitters and occupants of the house.
Onduline is suitable for both new roof construction and renovated roofs and is commonly installed on wooden, concrete and metal sub-structures.
Onduline Roofing and Thatch Roofing
Cintsa Thatching is the approved supplier and applicator of Onduline roofing in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The last few years have seen a big increase in the number of thatched house owners converting their roofs to onduline and onduvilla roofing.
Why change thatch roof to Onduline?
- Onduline is flexible, lightweight, versatile and attractive roofing solution - it can be shaped around the curves and contours of a thatched roof structure without loosing the aesthetics and shapes of the original design
- Onduline is suitable for over-sheeting - if the thatch material is in a really good condition and shows no sign of rotting, onduline can be fitted over the original roof, with a very lightweight substructure and without having to strip the entire roof
- Onduline provide matching, suitable valley and gutter accessories which fit perfectly into thatched roof designs, allow for adequate drainage and look great!

Onduline and Thatch Roofing Combined
This thatched roof fitted beautifully into the surrounds of the house but has problems with over hanging trees - the problem areas of the roof were fitted with onduline while the front of the roof was re-thatched - a great combination for a trouble free, beautiful roof.
