Cashing In On Metal Roofing
Roofers are not the only ones to have recognized the benefits of metal roofing; the US government has established an Energy Policy Act of 2005 that rewards homeowners who have opted for the installation of a metal roof. In order to qualify for the Energy Star program requirements, an energy efficient improvement to one’s home must include a pigmented metal roof. Because the majority of metal roofing manufactured today is at least 25 percent solar reflective for steep roofs and 65 percent solar reflective for low slopes, most metal roofing systems qualify for the credit. The tax credit savings on a metal roof under this act can reach up to $500, and is deducted directly from one’s “total tax liability”, such that it can reach sums in the thousands. To get in on this savings bonanza, speak with one of our metal roofing contractors about installing a qualifying metal roof system – they will be happy to help.
