Did you know that metal roofs installed from January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2016 qualify for a tax credit of up to $500?
Whether you are a contractor or a homeowner, this information is of great value. As a contractor, you can take advantage of this opportunity to show your customers you care about the investment they made with you; you can announce to them the possibility of getting a break in the upcoming tax season. As customers we all appreciate when a company informs us possible ways we can save money, so if you are a roofing salesperson, make sure you include this in your presentation to potential clients. As a homeowner, let’s be frank, this is a break you don’t get every day!
By going with a metal roof, not only are you opting for the strongest system, but also a roof that is energy efficient. The reflectivity of metal roofing panels keeps the structure underneath cooler, therefore it saves energy because your air conditionting unit doesn’t have to make as much of an effort. As an incentive, Energy Star approved reflective roofs are eligible to receive credit for 10% of the cost (not including installation), up to $500!
If you have installed a metal roof in the past 5 years, we urge you to check the Energy Star Site for further qualification specifications.
If you are thinking about installing a metal roof before 2016 ends, you should check out the site as well to make sure you choose a product that is approved. They have a long list of trusted brands that have partnered with Energy Star to participate in this program, so make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity. Metal Master Shop proudly carries many of these brands, and we will be happy to assist you and your contractor in making a sound decision.
You will need a Manufacturer’s Certification Statement to qualify and file Tax Form 5695.
