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.
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.

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?
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.
