The Roofing Process

Curious what to expect when you’re getting a new roof? Once the contract is signed, we get to work on the roofing process.

  1. Our friendly customer service representative will schedule your roofing days.
  2. We’ll take care of obtaining any necessary permits.
  3. You’ve already made your selections, so we order the shingles and other materials.
  4. On the day of your reroof, we start by protecting your siding and landscaping with tarps.
  5. We have to completely remove your current roof before we can start with your new one.
  6. The first layers that we put down are the ice and water shield and underlayment to protect the wood decking.
  7. Our team then installs the asphalt shingles you selected.
  8. We will replace or add vents and flashing as needed.
  9. Then we thoroughly clean up the job site.
  10. We check in to be sure you’re 100% satisfied.

If you have any questions during the roofing process, just let the on-site project manager know and they’ll be happy to answer!

Shingles, Metal, and Flat Roofs


Oaks Construction has knowledge and experience installing asphalt shingles, metal roofs, and flat roofs of TPO and EPDM.
In Rochester, most houses have asphalt shingle roofs. Asphalt shingles are a great choice because they come in a variety of colors and styles that look great on virtually every roof, regardless of the style of the house. They are weather-resistant and cost-effective. For added drama, try architectural shingles!
Metal roofs are extremely durable. They come in a variety of colors and styles and can last over 50 years! If you’d like more information about metal roofs, let us know.
Flat roofs are generally found on commercial buildings with very low slopes. Roofing materials for these roofs are thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM). They are both extremely sturdy and long-lasting.

Satisfied Roofing Customers

“Oaks Construction came highly recommended when we needed a new roof. Their salesman Phil answered all our questions and gave us excellent information about the process. They finished the installation of our roof in a day and a half. It was a complete tear off and Anthony and his crew were awesome. They went over our yard, driveway, and our neighbor’s driveway so thoroughly I know we won’t find a single nail or piece of old roof anywhere. Thank you, Oaks Construction. We will recommend you to all our friends & family.”

– Thomas C.

“So happy with my new roof. Oaks Construction has a very fair price, the salesman and crew boss were extremely professional and communicated with me throughout the job. Everything was done exactly on the timeline they gave me. The crew that did the work were considerate of my home and did a great job of cleaning up. I highly recommend Oaks Construction if you need a new roof.”

Satisfied Roofing Customers

“Oaks Construction just finished my new roof and I couldn’t be happier. I wish all projects would go this well. They were wonderful to work with all the way from the quote with Dan Canalungo to the final completion of the project with the Project Manager, Anthony, and including the 6 people working on the roof. They are all so respectful to me and my property. ”

There are several choices when choosing new siding for your house.

How do I know if I need a new roof?

Common signs that indicate the need for roof replacement are:

  • Missing, buckled, or damaged shingles
  • A roof older than 20 years old
  • Excess shingle granules in your gutters and downspouts
  • Water leaks in your attic
  • Sagging roof
  • Moss growing on the shingles
How much will my roof replacement cost?

The cost of a new roof depends on several factors:

  • The size of the roof
  • The shingles and materials you choose
  • Number of layers to remove from current roof
  • Roof style and slope
  • Condition of roof deck (if decking boards need replacement)
  • Chimneys and vents

It is nearly impossible to put together a definitive price of a new roof until all of the factors are considered.

Do you offer financing for a new roof?

Absolutely. We offer custom financing plans for home improvements. Contact our office for more information.

Do I have to choose the same shingles that are on my roof now?

We use the Hover app to take pictures of your home for measurements. The app creates a 3D rendering of your home that you can use to “try on” different styles, textures, and colors of shingles and siding. 

You are also welcome to visit our showroom in Spencerport to view samples of materials. Then, you can choose the shingles you like best!

How long will my new roof last?

Asphalt shingle roofs generally last about 20 years before they need to be replaced. Metal roofs can last 40-70 years.

What should I do to prepare for my roof installation?

Clear any obstacles, including vehicles, away from your house and driveway. This allows our team space for a dumpster, materials, and work. The installation is usually done in a day or two, so the inconvenience won’t last long.

What is the new roof installation process like?

Shortly before installation day, some of the roofing materials and a dumpster will be delivered to your home. 

These are the steps we take on the day of your roofing installation:

  • Cover siding & landscaping with tarps
  • Remove the old roof
  • Replace any rotten decking boards
  • Apply roofing felt, ice and water shield, and drip edge
  • Apply shingles
  • Install vents & flashing
  • Clean the job site

We recently outlined our roof replacement process in video from one of our job sites. Take a look!

Will a new roof add value to my home?

Yes, it will! According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), new roofing is the number one exterior feature that appeals to buyers. They further report that 109% of the value of a new roof is recovered from the project. Believe it or not, you could actually make money on your new roof!

Is a new roof tax deductible?

Roof replacement is considered a home improvement and, as such, is not tax deductible.

Will a new roof save me money on my homeowners insurance?

This is a question for your insurance carrier. Depending on your policy, you could get a 5% to 30% discount for a new roof installation.

Great people. Did not have to wait a long time before they came, repaired and assured us it was fixed. Young man was efficient, cordial and told us to call if we had further problems. Definitely will use Oaks when we need new roof. Very affordable and nice telephone staff as well. Five stars from us!

First off I want to say a big thank you to this company into the people that worked with me personally with my claim ❤️ I want to say that this company is and was the most professional and respectful company I have dealt with. With my house emergency our roof broke and our kitchen flooded out during a storm. They did everything they could to be here on the spot. They tarp my roof ASAP till they were able to get a crew here to do my roof. And within days of needing them here they were able to make that happen. My sales rep was Frankie and he has been very patient respectful and helpful with everything my family and I were going through. The crew who did my roof was Rich Mathis and Filipeo they did a phenomenal job. Rich very good at keeping me updated and posted with what they were about to do next on the roof. He made sure I like every step of the way of what they were doing. This company is recommended from my end. They also do more than Roofs.

I didn't realize Oaks Construction had a showroom! It's really nice! I met with my sales rep and he showed me different options for shingles and siding. It's was great to see everything laid out before actually signing a contract.

Very pleased with the work oaks construction did on our roof recently. They were quick to call me back and had me on the schedule for a few days later. The work was done quickly and our roof no longer leaks! Would definitely recommend!

We had a complete roof tearoff and install. Rob was our estimator and he was very down to earth and professional. We had a number in mind to what our project would cost, but Oaks came in quite a bit lower. Rob provided a nice time frame, but they actually were able to schedule even earlier to complete the job. On the day of the job, the crew arrived at 6:40 am ready to work. And did they ever.Complete tear off, some plywood replacement, and fresh install in around 4 hours. Zack was on site as a manager of activity from start to finish, and ready to answer questions all day. From start to finish using Oaks Construction for our roof project was a great experience

I called Oaks Construction in order to obtain an estimate on preventative ice damming measures to take, as we almost had a disaster last winter. Tom came to my house to investigate, and I have to say I was more than a little nervous as to how large an investment this would be. Upon reviewing specific areas of concern, Tom came to the conclusion that a few simple measures would easily fix this problem and willingly spoke directly to my handyman providing him with instructions on how to solve the issue. How rare in this day and age to find an honest person/company that could easily convince a customer having no knowledge of roofing/construction to needlessly spend thousands, but instead left the premises without earning a cent. This speaks volumes to the ethical nature of Oaks Construction. A true diamond in the rough!!!
