I have been trying to research this product for over a week now. I have seen good things, and then hints of bad things, but nothing SPECIFIC about why it might not be a wise choice. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Thanks!

Other than the fact that it looks ugly, and falls apart within ten years, there's nothing wrong with it. I've seen several in my area, and they all seem to be replaced after about five years. This product came up in discussion on a roofers' board, and not one person had anything positive to say about it. But you can always prove us wrong.

Hi K2, haven't been posting much because there is too much to do (roofing-wise), and while posting is good for the ego, it's useless for paying the bills! Also, many of the jobs we seem to be getting involved in these days seem to be complicated and require complete roof rebuilds. These are complex to estimate, and complex to carry out. So, I post when I can...

I installed Ondura on my shed about 10 years ago. You can read my review here:

I don't have any experience with it, but your at the right place, I'm sure someone here will give you some good advice. My sister just got Ondura and she said she liked it. I think she had some San Jose roofing contractors install it for her. She said her roof was leaking badly and she couldn't take it anymore.

I wouldn't use Ondura on your house. I haven't heard many good things about it. I would talk to an Indianapolis Roofing Contractor first before doing anything else. Anytime you can talk to an expert in the field is always a good thing in my opinion.

I just got my order in of Ondura Spanish Tile, Monday.Now it took two months to get here and I paid when I ordered .I only called once to my local store to ask when it was to be here .So Monday I was ready get it and put it on my roof.But I was short 5 feet of roofing cap not to say it wasn't Spanish Tile .You would think not a big thing right ? Wrong !The argument began ,or for them as to it was not ordered right.All I wanted was to exchange the wrong roofing cap for the right one and if I had to pay more fine I mean after all they had my money for 2 months already .I was talking to a manager ,I've never seen such a thing like this .I sent the order back I could not finish it with out all the cap.Oh the manager ask me if I could cut what I had to look like spanish tile I said yeah but still do not have enough .Hope this helps.

Its crap easy to install but its junk and forget the warranty if you do the installing. And the dealers are no help at all have had nothing but trouble with this stuff. We had a hail storm and it punched holes and dents all through it our neighbors had no problems with there roofs and they have slate, asphalt shingles and tin roofing.

I agree with the reviews that say it lasts about 10 years (though I'm pretty sure Ondura claims it lasts longer). We put it on our home in 2001 and the edges are curled and it desperately needs paint. The house is two story and the roof has a 10 in 12 pitch, so painting it will be no easy task. We live in California, so we had trouble getting it as well. Guess we should have done our homework first. I certainly do NOT recommend it.

The people who like it haven't had it long enough to know the truth.

I am a practicing architect. I installed Ondura in my home about 10 years ago and still looks as NEW. My roof is a low slope, 2' at 12' but was properly installed, special nails, overlaps, etc.
It is red and visually looks like clay tile'
