Flat and Low-Slope Roofing

It is common to see flat roofs on both commercial and residential properties all through the Twin Cities. While their low-profile appearance is appealing to many homeowners and businesses, flat roofs are more prone to sustaining storm damage, considering how diverse Minnesota’s weather is.
Rain, hail, ice, snow and the sun have a greater toll on flat roofs compared to standard sloped roofs. As such, it is essential to ensure that the flat roofing material you select is one that can withstand everything Minnesota’s unpredictable weather throws at it.
