A local church recently built a new playground for the children. Several members of the congregation volunteered to build the new playground and demonstrated some impressive carpentry skills in the design and construction of the centerpiece, which features a raised platform from which kids can enjoy slides and a covered area with a roof.

While investigating roofing options at a local Lowe’s store, the lead person on the design team saw ONDURA corrugated asphalt sheets. The roof has purlins, not sheathing, so traditional asphalt shingles would not work. He had considered corrugated metal for the roof cover, but was concerned that the children could get hurt from contact with a metal roof. He liked ONDURA because it is more flexible and less dangerous than a corrugated metal roof – the edges of a metal roof can be very sharp. The volunteer team agreed, and Midwest Green ONDURA was chosen for the project. Three of the team members were able to install ONDURA on the playground roof in a few hours on a nice day in September, and we are proud to show this example on our site.
