Challenge

Over one billion people in slums and villages worldwide lack safe, adequate roofing.

Corrugated cement and metal sheets are the most widely used roofing materials in low-income communities all over the world, but these options are uncomfortable and dangerous:

  • Unbearably hot in the summer

  • Loud and leaky during monsoon season

  • Break frequently, causing injury

  • Require costly, time-intensive repairs

  • Contain toxic chemicals like asbestos

Corrugated metal and cement roofing lead to adverse health effects and reduced quality of life. The only other option on the market is a concrete roof, which is simply not affordable.

Reviews

“Due to the heat [in my home], my husband developed breathing problems... If I wanted a concrete roof, it would be out of my budget, but Modroof is available through a loan system, and it’s just as good as a concrete roof.”
