Save on Metal Roofing in Salem with $500 Tax Credits

Posted on Depoe Bay Roofing

Metal roofing in Salem is very effective and durable. It can also save you $500 with a tax credit.

Edit: As of 2017, the Federal Tax Credit program has expired. Stay informed of any updates by visiting the Energy Star tax credit page.

Did you know that homeowners will be eligible to receive a $500 tax credit when they install metal roofing on their primary residence in 2016? The government is currently making a sweet deal even sweeter! Metal roofing is generally very energy efficient to begin with due to high reflectivity. This means homeowners with metal roofs tend to pay less for heating and cooling, or “comfort” costs than others. On top of that, the government is offering more savings! How many opportunities in life are there to save money by saving money?

It is important to note, not every metal roof will qualify for these tax savings. You will need to find Energy Star compliant, high-reflectivity metal roofing products. Two of our favorite metal roofing material manufacturers offer these products. Be sure to ask about our SteelROCK metal roofing tiles if you like the timeless, classic look of tile, but want the lighter weight, durable, and energy saving properties of galvanized steel. Alternatively, for a more traditional long, metal panel look, Bruce & Dana, a Salem roofing contractor supplier and sheet metal manufacturer, produces very efficient metal roofing materials as well.

If you opt to have your Salem roofers install a qualifying metal roof, be sure to ask for a copy of the Manufacturer Certification Statement for the roofing materials. You will need this as well as the IRS Form 5695. At the time of writing, only the 2015 version of this form is available, but it will provide you with the basic information you will need to claim your energy savings credit. Be sure to ask your accountant or other tax preparer for more information on this credit.
