What type of flat roof was used and how has it stood up? - Love the house! I am planning on building a new modern home with a flat roof, but concerned about the flat roof and its issues in MN. I found there are four approaches, and two PVC and EPDM seem to be the most reliable. Can you tell me what this home used and how it has lasted in regard to repairs?

Thanks Tim! We rarely have issues with flat roofs not performing, unless something was not installed properly. Flat roofs have been around Minnesota for a long time. Also, the technology has improved.

This house has a fully adhered EPDM roof. The roof edge was built with a parapet that helps to channel water toward the downspout locations. It is my understanding that this roof has performed well and has not required any repairs to date.
