Roof Installation Services
Few things are more important to your sense of well-being than a cozy, dry home. Essential to that goal is a watertight roof system. Functional considerations aside, when you visualize how your home looks from the street guess who stars in a major role? Yep, your roof. Choosing the right material can be the difference between charm and oops. Kuhl has people on staff with good taste and many years of experience. We also have people with terrible taste, but they are not allowed to participate in material selections.
We have installed hundreds of new roofs around the Minneapolis and St.Paul area, including all varieties of cedar, asphalt, metal, tile and slate, each time taking into consideration the greater picture of the home in the design of the roof. When structural modifications are required, our architect can design the best solution for your budget. See Kuhl Case Study #33 that describes a project for a commercial property owner in Wayzata who called Kuhl because he knew we had the design and construction chops to make his project happen affordably.
Cedar Roof Repairs & Installation
Cedar roofs offer Twin City area homeowners a high dollar-to-beauty ratio, which explains why it is still so popular. Because the price of asphalt roofing has increased significantly in the past couple of years, the relative cost of cedar shake and shingle roofing has become more palatable. It used to be the case the cedar roofs cost double that of asphalt. Not so much anymore. Dollar for dollar it is hard to beat the aesthetic and architectural character of cedar shakes and shingles.
Asphalt Roof Repairs & Installation
True, asphalt roofing in Minneapolis has gone up in cost quite a bit lately. It is still the king of roofs because asphalt shingles offer a wide range of quality, texture and color options to the average homeowner. Asphalt shingles will continue to dominate the market because it is the most affordable material in the short term and it is easy to install. If you are looking for the very best that asphalt roofing has to offer it is possible to install high end designer series asphalt shingle roofs that cost more than some cedar roofs. There is a huge range of cost and design options in the asphalt shingle roofing market.
Metal Roof Repairs & Installation
Metal roofing is particularly suited for certain applications in the Minneapolis area including low-pitch slopes and certain architectural styles. As more and more material options and colors become available metal roofs are becoming increasing in popular in Minnesota. We tend to use metal in architectural applications such as eyebrows, pans, low-pitch slopes and other features. Metal roofing plays well with other materials, making it a great accent material.
Slate Roof & Tile Roof Repairs & Installation
Slate and Tile are members of the old guard. These are initially more expensive to install but will outlast any other roofing material and do it with undeniable old-world charm. In the case of either slate or tile, the weight of the material alone can make it impractical to apply to many homes. Both are gorgeous and authentic when executed well.
Flat Roof Repairs & Installation
In Minneapolis, flat roofs are often a necessary evil. On homes we see them used to reconcile odd roof planes and to create functional space above finished structures. Can you say roof deck! In the commercial work the flat roof is the workhorse of the exterior envelope often covering thousands of square feet. We use sprayed urethane, TPO, EPDM, and metal for a variety of flat roof jobs around Minnesota.
