The news has been recording peak temperatures of over 40C in recent weeks. People are sweating in their homes, putting ice packs on their foreheads, or facing every fan towards them to survive the heat wave.  

El Niño has come upon the country, and everyone is bracing for the summer heat like never before. But, while this may pass, you can never be sure of the weather nowadays, and it may be time to begin preparing your home. 

Onduline Roofing For The Summer Season

One of the biggest problems with traditional roofing materials is that they absorb heat from the sun, which can make your home's interior hot and uncomfortable. This is especially noticeable during summer when temperatures can soar to uncomfortable levels. 

Onduline Roofings are made from cellulose fiber repurposed to be lightweight and durable. The flexible corrugated surface of the roofings allows it to take any shape, making it perfect for any type of structure or other construction projects. Most notably, the material is built to have a UV-resistant finish to give protection against the harmful effects of overexposure to sunlight, such as fading and cracking

Onduline Roofing Is Thermal Insulating

Onduline roofing is excellent for hot temperatures because it helps keep your home cool. It does this by providing thermal insulation, which retains heat from entering your house and stops heat from leaving. This helps keep the temperature inside your home comfortable during the summer months. 

One of the critical advantages of having Onduline Roofing installed in your home is its thermal comfort. Onduline, when exposed to the sun's rays, absorbs the thermal energy to regulate the ambient air and provide thermal insulation

Unlike typical roofing systems, the heat doesn’t get swallowed within the roofing, which raises temperatures indoors–instead, the panels absorb the high temperatures to keep the interiors cool during the summer. 

Additionally, during the rainy or cold seasons, the panels will protect you from the effects of the weather penetrating through. You can remain warm and safe with the weather-resistant material of Onduline Roofing. 

How Does Thermal Insulation Work?

Thermal insulation is a material or layer used in Onduline Roofings to keep heat from entering or escaping the area. Onduline uses a thick layer of insulation, which helps keep the home cool during the heat waves currently experienced in the Philippines.  

Heat naturally rises and falls depending on how warm or cold the insulated material is on either side. So for the thermal insulation to work appropriately, the thickness must be enough to block any rising heat from the outside and reduce the falling heat inside the home. The thermal barrier works by trapping the air between the layers of the material, creating an effective buffer against drastic rising and falling temperatures outside. 

Onduline Roofing is Durable

In ordinary steel roofings, prolonged exposure to heavy rain or the harshness of UV rays can lead to quick deterioration of the material. As a result, you will notice cracking or rusting in some of those roofings, which may worsen over time if you don’t take steps to change them.

With a λ= 0,12W/mK, an effusive material provides better comfort during warm periods and retains warmth inside during cold ones.  

Onduline Roofing is built to be durable and withstanding with the changing weather we experience in the Philippines.(up to 225kph installed on steel purlins & up to 260kph installed on wooden purlins) This means you won’t need to worry about replacing or repairing them so soon or frequently, especially during the summer heat. Furthermore, suppose your roofing is made with strong, quality materials. In that case, you’ll also be able to save money in the long run, as well as give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family will be safe under an Onduline Roofing solution
