2Roof is an innovation that produces roofing sheets and other building materials from plastic wastes.

We take plastic wastes which take a thousand of years to decompose and turn them into roofing sheets. The roofing sheets are smooth to touch, very exact, fire resistant and help insulate the structure. The waterproof roof sheets will replace many systems now used in the construction industry, because they are stronger, longer lasting and cost less. The shingle and long span product lines have a...

We take plastic wastes which take a thousand of years to decompose and turn them into roofing sheets. The roofing sheets are smooth to touch, very exact, fire resistant and help insulate the structure. The waterproof roof sheets will replace many systems now used in the construction industry, because they are stronger, longer lasting and cost less. The shingle and long span product lines have a moulded texture which will allow us to interlock the roof sheets so they will not dislodge during high winds. Why 2Roof?  Built for the Green Agenda: taking harmful plastic wastes out of the environment helps in curbing the menace of climate change.  Energy Efficient: 2Roof is designed to be adaptive to different weather conditions, hence reducing the need for temperature control systems.  Fire resistant: resists fire on events of fire outbreaks.  Cost Effective: 2Roof come in varying forms i.e. short span, long span and shingles; to suit the budget without compromising quality and needs of customers.  Less Noisy: makes negligible noise during rainfall or excessive sunlight.  Aesthetically Designed: 2Roof is designed to complement the beauty of any building.  Built to Last: 2Roof is strong, durable and resistant to physical tempering and chemical attack. Installing the roofing sheets offers the user an energy efficient building that will not fail and will outlast all other types of roofing.

Problem

The founders were concerned with the level of environmental pollution presented by plastic wastes in our communities and thought of finding a lasting solution to tackle the problem.The founders observed that there are so many institutions tackling the plastic pollution through recycling, but one thing common to all of them is that, they are recycling the wastes into pellets. Thus, they are only reducing the use of virgin plastic pellets but the plastic waste still come back to the environment.

Solution

The founders were of the opinion that, there is need for a better solution for the plastic pollution by producing beneficial item that will last for decades. It was on this basis that 2Roof was established.The roofing sheets are manufactured using an eco-friendly manufacturing process and they are: Fire resistant, Less Noisy, Cost Effective, Weather Friendly, Aesthetically Designed, Customizable and extra-durable.

Target Beneficiaries

we are going to be selling our roofing sheets to real estates, individuals and government in our target area, Kano. Kano is selected as the target area because it has a population of 15 million and most importantly, Kano is estimated to be 1.5 Million shortfall of housing. We selected real estates as our beachhead market because there are over 1500 key players in the sector. Also about 10,000 housing units are being built annually.

Mission and Vision

Vision Statement Maintain clean environment and climate by providing green roof for all. Mission Statement 2Roof’s mission is to provide roofing sheets and other building material, from recycled plastic wastes, for the wide variety of constructions across Africa thereby maintaining a clean, sustainable and aesthetic environment.

Competitive Advantage

While there are metal and PVC roofing sheets in the market, which are comparably of lower quality and very expensive, our roofing sheets will draw a sizable size of the market due to their superior quality and pricing. Also, our competitive advantage is that we have a unique technology (patent pending), different product lines to suit the budget of our customers, very cheap source of raw materials (present as a waste) and cheap overall cost of production.
