Outdoor Shower Posted on 17 Jun 05:00 , 0 comments

Dreaming of long, hot, summer days? Now is the perfect time to start planning spring projects. We recommend an outdoor shower like the one April Wilkerson built at her parents' home outside Austin – super cool! April chose translucent white TUFTEX PolyCarbonate panels for the shower wall to keep the space as cool as possible, but you can have fun choosing your own color. Check out how she did it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT42lIspPGs&t=3s

Screened in porch possible with Tuftex DeckDrain Posted on 10 Jun 05:00 , 0 comments

One of our industrious customers created a screened-in porch under a second-floor deck and finished the new room with TUFTEX DeckDrain on the ceiling. Designed to keep the area under a deck dry and looking great, the DeckDrain drainage system catches and diverts water away, and is easy to attach below existing decks. We think it’s pretty cool to create a new room within existing space, don’t you? Check out the before-and-after transformation!

Police K9 Dog Shelter Posted on 3 Jun 05:00 , 0 comments

As dog lovers, we are particularly excited about these kennels that house rescue dogs and K9s. Built by Sheriff’s Deputy Wine of the K9 Unit at his Virginia home, one kennel is for his personal dogs, including five rescues, one former K9 he adopted when the dog retired, and an active K9 who rides with Deputy Wine on duty. The second kennel is for boarding the department’s active K9s.

While Deputy Wine is a seasoned law enforcement officer, he is the first to admit he has no experience with construction; that’s why he chose ONDURA sheets for his kennel roofs. “I built both kennels myself, with no help, after watching YouTube videos, and my research indicated ONDURA is the easiest roofing material to install,” shares Dep. Wine. “The roof was definitely the easiest part of the project, because ONDURA is lightweight and easy to carry and manipulate. I was also able to cut it with only a razor blade and straight edge. I was super-pleased with how fast and easy the installation was, and I am very proud to say I did it right the first time and the roof looks great and doesn’t leak. Now all my dogs are protected from the elements: sun, rain and snow.” Job well-done, Deputy Wine!

Outdoor Bar Posted on 20 May 05:00 , 0 comments

What better way to spend summer evenings than at your very own covered patio bar? Take a cue from our friend Rich in Freehold, New Jersey, who gave his an island vibe with thatched sides, a teak top, and a gray ONDURA roof. Rich chose ODURA over metal roofing because he liked the color choices and ease of installation. “After doing some research, I felt ONDURA was the best option for me,” he says. “It was easy to cut and install with my own tools, and I expect it to hold up to the winter elements in the Northeast better than metal.” We’ll toast to that!

Cottage Living is Beautiful Posted on 29 Apr 05:00 , 0 comments

A picture (or two) really can be worth a thousand words, particularly when it illustrates the transformative power of an ONDUVILLA roof. This charming cottage in Hickory, North Carolina, got a recent makeover with fresh paint and ONDUVILLA shingles, designed to deliver the upscale look of clay tiles with less weight and increased durability. The delighted homeowner tells us her new roof “is already the talk of the town.” That’s what we call picture-perfect!

Backyard Building Posted on 22 Apr 05:00 , 0 comments

Deek Diedricksen is known for dreaming up spectacular treehouses, cabins, tiny houses, and backyard offices, A-frames, and shacks, many of which incorporate TUFTEX. Why? “I favor the ‘sparse-modern’ look, but not the price tag,” Deek explains. “With its corrugated and repeating ridge lines, TUFTEX delivers the aesthetic I want, at a budget I can afford. The stuff is also lightweight, and durable as heck!” We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
