Onduline Roofing

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.
