Remodeling the exterior of your home can be a great way to refresh the way your home looks and feels. Some homeowners aren’t quite sure where to start when it comes to upgrading the outside of their home. Siding and roofing can make an even bigger impact than your landscaping, but only 37 percent of homeowners who remodel will tackle the complete overhaul of their exterior. If you fall into this category, here are a few of the things you need to know about the most popular siding and roofing styles.


Siding is the very first thing that most people will notice about your home. It majorly influences the way your home looks and sets the tone for the interior of your home. Installing new siding has the potential to boost your curb appeal and the market value of your home. Take a look at a few of the different siding types we carry for your home.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding has been a very popular choice among homeowners for years due to its durability and affordability. It is relatively strong, allowing it to stand up to harsh elements and winds. As an added bonus, it is also extremely low maintenance and never needs an additional coat of paint. You can find vinyl siding in a variety of colors and styles.

Fiber Cement Board

Fiber cement board is another strong product that can stand up to the elements without cracking or becoming damaged. Paints and stains can be applied to the fiber cement in order to change the appearance, making it a very flexible material. It can be designed to resemble wood, stucco, or a smooth finish.

Engineered Wood Board

Engineered wood board is a less expensive version of solid wood siding. These boards are resistant to water, fungal infections, and pest infestation. It has the appearance of real wood siding but without the major expense.


Roofing comes in an endless variety of shingles, styles, shapes, and colors. There are far more options than most homeowners realize but sorting through them all can be a major chore. Here at Roofco, we offer two of the most popular types of roofing: composite shingles and metal roofing. They both have unique benefits and advantages depending on what your home’s needs are.  Ask us today how our roofers can help with your home roof repair

Composite Shingles

Composite shingles are the most popular option for homeowners across the country. Most people first stumble upon composite shingles because they are more affordable than many of the other options. They are asphalt shingles that are combined with fiberglass and coated with minerals. These shingles have a lifespan of up to twenty years, making them a worthwhile investment.

Metal Roofing

If cost is no issue for your roofing, then you may want to consider installing metal. It has the longest lifespan of any roof with most lasting for a lifetime. Despite its long lifespan, metal roofing is not high maintenance and can still stand up well to the harsh elements in Winnipeg. You won’t even have to sacrifice style for the durability of this material because it comes in a wide array of colors that can perfectly complete your home.

Choosing the right siding and roofing is important to perfectly tie together the appearance of your home. When you’re ready to boost your home’s curb appeal, you need to call the top Winnipeg roofing company. Contact Roofco today for a free estimate!
