Onduvilla was developed to provide an attractive roofing style for residential homes while exceeding the weather protection functionality that homeowners expect. One notable area where Onduvilla outperforms traditional shingles is wind resistance and protection from wind-driven rain. Onduvilla is warranted to withstand winds up to 150 miles-per-hour.
Onduvilla is made from a composite of asphalt with a fiber matte core. The colored coating on Onduvilla, which is based on decades of research and testing, delivers another layer of protection.
Onduvilla has the distinctive, dimensional appearance of traditional European roofs without the added weight, installation challenges or cost. And Onduvilla is available in several attractive colors, which gives homeowners options in choosing a roof color that complements the other exterior colors of the home.
Residential metal roofing is generally made of steel, aluminum, or copper. Rolls of 24- or 26-gauge steel sheets are given a metallic coating to prevent rust, followed by a baked-on paint finish. Aluminum sheets don’t require the metallic coating but do get painted. Copper, is neither coated nor painted, because it weathers without corroding. It is sometimes used for special features, such as the roof of a prominent bay window, gutters, and downspouts.
Steel roofing products are coated with either zinc (galvanized) or a mixture of aluminum and zinc (galvalume or zincalume). Of the two, galvalume offers the longest life. The coatings are offered in multiple thicknesses—the thicker the coating the longer the life, and the higher the cost.
