Residential Flat Roof

Residential Flat Roof Services in the Twin Cities

 

Some Minnesota homes are built with completely flat roofs, some houses have sections of flat roofing, such as porches or other additions. Unlike what the name suggests, most flat roofs are not completely flat; they’re slightly raised, with a slope that allows water to drain so the roof doesn't get damaged from long periods of standing water. The slight slope is hard to see with the naked eye, but when properly designed, it will protect your home.

Residential Flat Roof Repair

If you suspect your home’s flat roof is damaged, you should contact a residential flat roof contractor immediately. When you call The Construction Group, we can be at your home in a short time to examine your roof and make a plan to fix the problem. If the damage is minor, repairs on flat roofs are relatively easy to complete and can be done quickly.

To successfully operate, your flat roof needs to be properly sealed and be continuous to allow for proper drainage and protection. With the various temperature changes and mountains of snow that accumulate year after year, your roof needs to be able to protect your home. When properly installed, your flat roof will withstand drastic changes in weather and repel and drain water so it doesn’t damage the interior of your home.

What are the advantages of a flat roof?

If you’re a homeowner in Minnesota, you probably have a sloped roof, which is more traditional than a flat roof. However, in recent years, many Minnesota residents have started installing flat roofs on their home additions, porches, and other new structures.

Flat roofs pose a variety of benefits:

  • Most flat roof repairs are simple and cost-effective.
  • Flat roofs rarely leak or get damaged in any way, barring any extreme weather events.
  • Flat roofs are energy-efficient and can lower your energy costs.
