Winnipeg’s harsh climate leaves roofs exposed to freezing cold, heavy snowfall, intense rainfall, and scorching heat. By choosing the right roofing materials, you can protect your roof and your home; that means fewer repairs, and less risk of damage to your home.

Here at STAR, we offer a wide variety of durable roofing materials built for Winnipeg’s weather. Looking for roofing materials in Winnipeg? You’re in the right place.

Roofing Options for Winnipeg Homes

Here at STAR, we recommend one of three roofing materials for Winnipeg’s harsh climate:

  • Asphalt shingles: The most affordable roofing material available, the durable asphalt shingles we sell are built to withstand Winnipeg’s harsh climate.
  • Metal roofing: Metal roofing is incredibly long-lasting, with a lifespan of up to 70 years. It’s unmatched in durability and can improve temperatures in every season.

These roofing materials have some of the best water resistance, temperature resistance, and durability available, making them perfect choices for Winnipeg homes.


What roofing materials are best suited for Winnipeg's climate?

We love asphalt for an affordable option, cedar for a durable and unique look, and metal for unmatched durability; all three materials work well in Winnipeg’s climate.

What is the life expectancy of a roof?

The life expectancy of a roof depends on the materials used in its construction and how well maintained it is. Asphalt shingles typically last about 20 years; cedar shingles last about 30, and metal roofing can last 50 years or more.
