    New Roof Panels, Chang or Oranit

    Finished building a new roof structure, painted all the metal, now it's time to buy the roof panels, and get them on. So far I have found that the roof panels made by Chang have worked very well. We have put them on other roofs, and they have retained their color, and are still intact after a few years. Have had no problem with them. I have used some other ones, forgot the name of them, but they are all bleached out due to the sun. Went shopping around for panels, and the Chang are going for 59Baht apiece, 1.20M long. A lady in one shop whom we have done some purchasing from, and seems reliable, based on previous transactions, suggested ORANIT roof panels. She said that is what she used on her house, and they are 10 Baht cheaper then Chang. She said they are good quality and retain their color also. Have any of you used ORANIT panels, and how satisfied are you with these panels?

    We used plain Oranit corrigated cement sheet panels on a shop house job and I went through them while inspecting the work, but then I weight 100 kilo's, if it wasn't for the steel security mesh and sisalation I would have suffered a nasty fall instead of just ankle lacerations.
    To be fair this is one experience with this product and should not be used to compare brands.

    Good that you didn't get seriously hurt, but it does indicate a lack of strength in the product. If you inspected the shop house roof, it would seem you've inspected others.

    Use the Chang. I know plenty of people that have including myself. Use the best quality retaining clips, ie the ones that won't rust. The rusty water running down the roof will discolour it.

    They are going up as I am writing this, I'm not the one doing it. I bought the self drilling screws and the hex head's color matches the roof panels. Looks nice.

    Supervisory position, sort of. The wife is out there cracking the whip. I just go out to make all is well, about every hour or so. Will have to freshen up on loading pictures.

    the blind leading the blind. you whent through the roof because you dont know what your doing. which beggers the question what were you expecting to find on the roof, maybe a brocken back. i'm happy you only got a few scratches. stay away from things you dont understand. because your falang it dont make you god. no one knows everything so stop kidding yourself.

    Hate to write this, but it appears the slope of the roof is not steep enough. We are now grinding off the welds which the panels are screwed on, and fixing that. Instead of going under the eaves of the roof, we are going to raise the high side to just under the shingles of the existing roof. This will increase the slope by 20 centimeters.

    Here you see 2/3 of the roof add on. Hope this works.
