As a global business we understand the value of sustainability. Ross Roof Group is determined to play its part in doing what’s right for the New Zealand and the world. We take responsibility for our actions – environmentally, socially and ethically. This means running our business in a sustainable way through nurturing people, managing waste and protecting our natural environment.

SUSTAINABILITY

A metal roof requires less timber framing and less fuel in transportation compared to a heavy weight roof. Pressed metal tiles are more environmentally friendly and provide the lowest carbon footprint of any roof on the market.

These benefits have a huge impact on the overall sustainability of roofing material in the building industry.

RECYCLING

Steel is one of the most infinitely recycled materials in the world and is considered a sustainable material by the sustainable building industry. The main material of the Metrotile’s product is steel. This offers a more sustainable option to other types of roofs on the market. In our factory, most of the production waste ends up in the recycle bin for re-use.

MINIMISE OFF-CUTS ON SITE

Our installers are our business partners who specialise in metal tile roof installation. As such, the off-cuts from the jobsite are collected by our installers and taken to the metal recycling bin. The Installers are Licensed building practitioners (LBPs), who have been trained and assessed to be competent to deliver exceptional craftsmanship to ensure the roofs weather tightness. As part of the Ross Roof Group market offer, their focus on values go hand in hand with their craftsmanship.

Ross Roof Group practice what they preach, and when it comes to reducing waste, the business manages the process from their manufacturing plant right through the value chain to the completed roof on your home.
