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.
“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.”
M Soni, ModRoof customer
