American roofing tile company Vedder has been criticised after a tweet claiming that the company would “pay off your roof”.
Vedder says the tweet is an “illogical” way of asking a homeowner to pay a mortgage for a home they’ve already paid off.
The company’s website states that “all of our tile products are made from durable recycled materials and can last for thousands of years”.
It says the tiles “can be recycled at home and can be installed and repaired on a roof”.
“Vedden Roofing tiles are made of recycled materials, durable recycled plastic, and are recyclable for up to 25 years.
We have an environmentally friendly, recycled product that is recyclables free and we recycle the waste of our customers’ homes.
The use of recycled material in the manufacture of Vedder roofing and patio tile is completely sustainable,” the company said.
The company has been inundated with complaints about the tweet, and the company has responded with a tweet explaining its use of “sustainable recycled materials”.
The Vedder team is committed to doing our part to reduce the environmental impact of the manufacture and use of our products.” “
They are environmentally friendly and sustainable.
The Vedder team is committed to doing our part to reduce the environmental impact of the manufacture and use of our products.”
A spokesperson for Vedder told the ABC it was “looking into the matter”.
The company has also released a statement in which it says “there is no reason why a homeowner should pay for a roofing or patio tile that has been covered by water or sand”.
The spokesperson said the tweet “was taken out of context”.
