General introduction on roofing trends

In the last two years when most of us were locked up at homes, we realized the value of having a safe haven. Many homeowners researched modern roofing materials and invested in their home projects. They were hoping to get a better price for their properties after the pandemic was over.

The roofing trends which are picking up in 2022 are-

  • Metal roofing
  • Bitumen lightweight roofing
  • Sustainable roofing with solar panels
  • Asphalt roofing shingles

How are bitumen roofs better than other roofing?

Metal roofs are made of corrugated galvanized steel, or an alloy of zinc, aluminum, and silicon-coated steel. They are extremely popular as they have a high-longevity and the prices are extremely affordable. They are available in multiple colors and the homeowner truly is spoilt for color choices. However, they heat up a lot during summers.

Sustainable roofing with solar panels is always welcome for any home. With increasing concerns about climate change, global warming and the glaciers melting, that is the best option in today’s world. The best option for the modern roofing materials will be to use eco-friendly bitumen roofing tiles and installing solar panels above it. 

Asphalt roofing shingles are extremely versatile and can be tailored to several completely different angles, shapes and forms. Asphalt roofing shingles with a fiberglass mat accomplish the best (Class A) fire rating. However, they are not recommended for low-slope roofs. They fulfill the foremost rigorous wind resistance tests, and are perfect for regions which receive high velocity wind. However, they are more expensive than lightweight bitumen roofs.

However, bitumen roofing has many advantages. It is extremely lightweight and hence easy to transport. It is very easy to install and takes very less installation time. It has a very low carbon emissions during its manufacturing process and later and hence is healthy for your family. It is extremely good for the environment too. It is completely waterproof and lasts for a long time. Onduvilla roofs have a very high wind resistance up to 314 kmph. They are also rust free solutions for roofing, and hence they are ideal for homes in the coastal regions. 

Onduvilla roofs are eco-friendly roofing tiles which are made of a single layer of organic fibers along with bitumen. These eco-friendly tiles are pre-pigmented with resin in various colors. 

At Onduline, our initiatives have enabled us to achieve an affirmative carbon footprint of 4066 g CO2/m² and we are constantly innovating newer methods of constructing greener roofing solutions.

  • Durability- Bitumen roofs, asphalt roofing shingles and metal roofs are extremely durable. Even concrete flat roofs are perfect for Indian homes as we do not experience much snow and harsh weather in India other than the extreme northern regions close to the Himalayas.
  • Climate- India has a huge coastline stretching for around 7,517 kilometers. There are nice coastal states- Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and West Bengal. There are more than two dozen coastal cities in India with a population of more than 50 crore. Mumbai, Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Panaji, Surat, Vadodara, Porbandar, Mangalore, Cochin, Puri and Pondicherry are the most populated cities situated near the coastline.
