Flat Roof and Low Slope Roofing System Installation in Greater Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Commercial flat roof systems take a beating—and where there is water, there is potential for major problems. Regular maintenance, inspections and care are critical to minimize potential issues over the life span of a flat roof.

Several factors impact the life span of a flat roof system and its ability to do its job. Common problems include:

What flat roof system is right for you?
Most people have no idea what flat roof system is right for them. What they do know is that their current system has some significant issues, problems or defects. That’s where we come in. A roof consultant from TD Roofing can perform a detailed inspection, discuss the options and make recommendations based on your requirements. We can help you choose the best flat roof system for your needs and budget.
Here is a quick overview of the low slope systems we provide:
Built-up Roofing (BUR)
The traditional tar and gravel roof application. Today, BUR uses asphalt instead of tar and is the most common and reliable roofing material. This system is comprised of multiple layers that are applied, sealed and waterproofed. It’s durable, impact and fire resistant. It’s also easily maintained and has a long life span.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Another common flat roof system for commercial and residential roofing projects. It is a single-ply asphalt roof membrane that provides resistance to extreme temperatures and water intrusion. It is installed in three-foot rolls either with a torch-down process or an easier self-adhesive peel and stick.
TPO and PVC Roofing
Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is a blend of two rubber compounds and is a cost-effective option for both residential and commercial use. It is a single-ply white roofing application that comes in three-foot rolls for quick and easy installation. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is also a single-ply, easy to install, roll-out membrane with heat-welded seams. It provides excellent water intrusion protection and good thermal insulation for reduced energy costs. Either system can be fully adhered or fastened mechanically.
One of the most durable low-slope or flat roof systems is ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). It is used in both new construction and replacement projects in any climate. It is durable, long-lasting and a cost-effective way to maintain a roof. It also features and protects against UV damage and is easy to patch and repair. EPDM sheets can be up to 50 feet wide. It can be anchored with fasteners or ballasted with stone. Glue-down options are also available as well.
This application is ideal for low-sloped or flat roofs. It’s a single-ply material that is manufactured to the exact size thus eliminating 80 to 85% of application seaming that in turn makes for a highly leak-proof, long-term option. Duro-Last, a white membrane material, has the highest rated reflectivity of any single-ply membrane and is Energy Star rated. It can be installed over an existing roof and has a 15-year warranty.
A properly installed roof can protect a church for decades. Church roofs are typically not a standard roof; the repairs and replacement can be complex, and they sometimes involve steeples, concealed gutters and parapets. Plus, traditional building materials may not apply to these challenges. In the end, church roofs require a unique set of solutions from a specialized roofer like TD Roofing.
The cost of repairing or replacing a church roof can be substantial and your decision should be made wisely. We offer a detailed estimate with the best possible materials and application to guarantee the best value over the lifetime of the roof.
