Build New Roof Structure for Onduvilla

Onduvilla looks great when used as a standard roofing tile and is applied to straight edged, straight angled roofs. Although many clients who choose to use onduvilla to convert from a thatched roof want to keep the original shape and design of the roof, onduvilla also gives the option to adapt the roof structure to that of a more conventional shape and style, or to increase the size of the roof to suit refurbishments in the home.

Onduvilla tiles hold the shape of the lightweight substructure of the roof. Insulation and ceilings are also installed during the building of the roof.

Below is an example of a roof which was originally thatched and then converted to Onduvilla while renovating the shape of the roof:

Rebuilding the roof structure to hold onduvilla

 

 

The roof structure was then re-built with staright angles and an additional overhang to provide shelter on the upstairs deck...

 

Roof branderings, insulation and ceilings were added

 

 

Once the main structure of the roof was completed shutterboard ceiling boards, insulation and wooden branderings to hold the onduvilla tiles were installed...

Onduvilla tiles can then be added to the structure.
