'Never There' Clean Up: Full Removal of Nails, Debris and Any Other Construction Material
Named after the Mohawk word skahnehtati, Schenectady is the city "beyond the pines." Founded by Dutch colonists in the 1600s, by the 1800's the city began developing as an industrial and manufacturing center, later giving rise to highly influential companies that call Schenectady home like General Electric and American Locomotive Company (ALCO). Because of the influence of GE, Schenectady has been a major part of emerging technologies - such as the development of nuclear powered submarines and development of renewable energy. In fact, Schenectady leaves a legacy as the "City that Lights and Hauls the World."
In recent history, Schenectady was selected as one of three sites for creation of off-reservation Casinos. The new Casino sits alongside the city waterfront with hotels, housing and a brand new marina that has attracted a whole new influx of new business into the area, redeveloping the old ALCO site. Plus, while GE's headquarters is in Boston now-a-days, their renewable energy center calls Schenectady home, alongside being the headquarters for Price Chopper and New York Lottery.
Infinite Roofing and Construction is proud to roof and re-roof the historically rich homes and businesses in Schenectady and serves it out of Infinite Roofing's headquarter office in neighboring Colonie. As such, Infinite is able to offer full service to Schenectady from roof repair, roof replacement (both residential and commercial, including flat roofs and shingle roofs), siding installation and seamless gutter installation.
Infinite Roofing and Construction has been trusted by Schenectady homeowners and businesses to handle their roofing and siding projects for 20 years.
Schenectady Roofing Contractors
Because Schenectady has existed since the 1600's - had major developments during the industrial revolution in the late 1800's and early 1900's, expansion in the mid 1950's and even modern revitalization lately, the building style and roofing methods vary widely. Plus on top of all of that, we've got to deal with all of the snow, hail and rain storms typical to the Capital Region at large! Schenectady has had frequent periods of rapid growth, resulting in construction practices that have often lead to a few modern day challenges - for example: if you have one of the older homes or live in one of the apartment complex's first built around the 1950's, you're familiar with some of the challenges that come with moving a big couch through a door frame that's only 30 inches with an extremely narrow hallway entryway.
All of this rings true for the roof styles common to Schenectady - with tons of flat roofing near downtown, even on residential buildings, but then also your classic shingle roofs around other homes and areas. So when you hire a roofing contractor to reroof your home or business, you're going to want to hire the contractors who have experience dealing with the unique construction styles and challenges that come to the area. Infinite Roofing has been helping other home owners in Schenectady with their re roofing projects for 20 years.
That's 20 years roofing through the snow and working with historic and modern buildings side by side. What that means for you is we're going to come in and get the job done right the first time, every time.

Schenectady Downtown Restoration and Rebuilding: How it Impacts Roofing and Siding
With the push to restore and revitalize downtown Schenectady, there are a number of different incentives that are aimed towards new homeowners and existing homeowners with the intent to continually improve how the city looks and feels.
As a result the City of Schenectady has a huge offering of different programs designed specifically to help you rehab your home, and that very much includes the roof and your siding!
Here's just a few of the incentives to helping you towards affording your new roof:
- NYS Dept of Tax and Finance RP-421f
- Exempts the owner of one and two family properties from taxation increases from assessment value following reconstruction, alteration or improvements
- NYS Dept of Tax and Finance RP-444a
- Authorizes a partial exemption from property taxation following a rehabilitation or altering of historic properties.
What this means for you is that when you restore your roof or have us put in new siding to uplift your home's appearance, you aren't going to have to worry about an increase in taxes from the increase in home value because of this specific incentive for Schenectady. Call (518) 382-5075 (the City of Schenectady Office of Assessment) to start on the paperwork for that.
- NYS Historic Preservation Office - Historic Tax Credits
- Gives you a 40% tax credit for historic properties that qualify for rehabilitation work
- Schenectady Lead Safe Housing Grant
- Gives grant funding to remove lead hazards in residential properties including windows, siding and doors.
These clauses help you completely offset or pay for the cost of construction for your Schenectady home, with the tax credit directly applying to the cost of improvement and the Grant potentially paying for the entire cost. Infinite Roofing and Construction handles historic preservation approved construction for roofing, siding, windows and doors.
- NYSERDA - PON 2309 Program
- Gives you incentives for rehabilitation projects that increase energy efficiency
For example, lets say you need to replace your insulation in your attic (increasing energy efficiency) or do other improvements to your building - this would apply to those kinds of projects and Infinite Roofing can help you with them!
- HUD 203(k) Rehab Mortgage Insurance
- Allows refinance of mortgage to include the rehabilitation of an existing home, also applies to buying a new home
- New York Mortgage Agency Remodel Program
- More comprehensive, provides financing to homebuyers that includes the purchase price of the home plus the cost to rehabilitate.
These direct mortgage level loans are generally easy to be approved for, are provided by most local banks and are great ways to finance and offset the cost of improvements to your home, which of course includes the roof and other exterior projects like siding and windows.
- SONYMA (State of New York Mortgage Agency) Neighborhood Revitalization Program
- Specific to Schenectady, this provides up to $20,000 in assistance, secured as a 'soft' second mortgage, forgiven after 10 years of occupancy towards the purchase of any vacant Schenectady county home.
An amazing program towards people moving into older vacant homes in Schenectady, the program literally reimburses up to $20,000 to improve your investment.
If none of those programs work for you, there are an incredible amount of non-profits who work towards the revitalization of Schenectady, including Better Neighborhoods, Inc (non-profit) which receives grant financing and offers different house renovation options, foreclosure prevention and HUD approved Housing Counseling.
*Same as cash financing on 0% option.
None of the above programs good for you and
looking to finance your Schenectady roof?
In a lot of cases with roof damage, the expense isn't exactly planned. It can happen out of nowhere and sometimes insurance, State and local level grant and loan programs (as listed above) simply don't make the cut. That's why we've maintained an excellent relationship with key venders and loan officers in order to guarantee you access to funding should every other option not be available to you.
These types of financing for your roof don't require putting your home up as equity, and there are options for no interest, same as cash financing over 12 months (choose Foundation Finance for this option) - plus they'll guarantee approval. One Main Financial offers a lower interest rate and is best for average and above credit scores.
With both options both companies will finance either the full cost of the project (e.g. just roof, roof and gutters, roof and siding) or the partial cost. You'll get exactly the level of commitment you need for your project to come to life and get rolling.
If your roof has been damaged by one of the many recent storms we've had around Schenectady, we encourage you to start the Insurance claim process first. Insurance may pay for most or all of the roof depending on the circumstance. If you need help, please feel free to give us a call!

Get new Seamless Gutters from our certified Schenectady Contractors.
Gutters are a chore and cause a heck of a lot more problems than you think. In fact, most of the time if there's a problem with the siding or insulation on the inside of the building, it's caused because the gutters aren't properly draining water off the roof. This is the number one cause of roof and siding damage we witness as a company. That's a big deal.
Seamless Gutters by Xtreme Gutter Guards precisely cover (and color match your home!) the installed gutters to completely prevent twigs, leaves and debris from clogging up the gutters and preventing them from doing the job they were designed to do - drain water away from your home.
They come included with a 20 year warranty when the seamless gutters are installed and have a unique, patented design that enables easy maintenance and care-free systems.
