Commercial Flat Roofing
In contrast to most homes, the majority of commercial buildings are constructed with flat roofs. Where homes are built with sloped roofs, commercial structures are by and large fashioned with horizontal or almost horizontal roofing. Because flat commercial roofs are designed differently than a typical residential roof; they have different materials that are employed to achieve a finished product that more effectively protects your property from weathering.
Modern commercial roofing has produced several advanced products and materials that are specially designed to address the unique needs of flat commercial roofs. These advancements in roofing technology are based on breakthroughs in chemical and mechanical engineering, and you should trust a professional roofer to complete any repairs to your flat commercial roofing.
Moreover, there are several options available to property owners and managers for flat roofing in Minneapolis, MN.

Flat Roofing Materials & Systems
With a wide variety of flat commercial roofing solutions available, you will need to trust the experience and expertise of a roofing professional from Capital Construction to assist you in finding the best flat roofing system for your property.
- TPO: These roofing membranes are a relatively inexpensive way to preserve the lifespan of your roof while reducing your summer cooling costs. The reflective surface of a TPO roof effectively prevents your building from absorbing radiant heat from the sun, keeping it cooler – saving you money on energy expenses.
- EPDM: A rubber based roofing system, EPDM roofs are designed to contract and expand along with temperature fluctuations to prevent cracks, leaks and other damage from occurring. This can be an important advantage as Minnesota’s temperatures can range from over 100 degrees in the summer to near zero in the winters.
- Built Up Roofing (BUR): Sometimes referred to as asphalt and gravel roofs or tar and gravel roofs, BUR has been proven to be one of the most cost-efficient and dependable flat commercial roofs. BUR’s superior watertight protection is due to the multiple layers that form a thick barrier on your roof.
