Ondura™ roofing


Anyone have any experience with this product? I am thinking of using it on my barn. The roof is a Gambrel.

ok, thanks for the opinion. Two questions though...


1) Do you actually have any experience with the product? I had never seen it before the other day, so I am interested in finding out the PRO/CON of using it.

2) I would not put it on my house either. But, assuming you have experience with the product, would you put it on your barn?

Thanks again!

Ondura™ roofing


I have seen an application on a shed that's now a few years old. It is starting to delaminate in places, and a small tree limb made a hole in it that had to be patched. Helped me decide not to use it anywhere at the lake.

Ondura™ roofing


Personally never used it...

My two cents: The stuff feels like cardboard with a paint coating. Not surprised about the small tree branch puncturing it. If my barn was just to hold stuff that would be ok if a little water got to it, then I'd use it because it is cheap. But if my barn was going to hold stuff I didn't want wet, then I'd go with a traditional roof. Just my two cents...

I turned down a few jobs when people wanted me to use the stuff. If it goes on correctly with no issues, it seems to at least last 2-4 years before falling apart. I'm sure you'll get lots of practice redoing the barn every couple of years. I'd prefer to do it only once every 20 or so.

Now that is useful information!
Thank!
