How to Get Tax Credits: Roof Replacement
“The Internal Revenue Service allows homeowners to apply for a tax credit after making energy-efficient home improvements. Roof replacement, in some cases, can enhance the energy efficiency of a home and may qualify for a tax credit,” explained Steve Keirstead, co-owner of RemodelPros.com parent company West Coast Vinyl, Inc.
Roof replacement must be completed on the homeowner’s primary residence with materials that meet IRS requirements for energy-efficient homes. Those materials include metal roofs with specially pigmented coatings designed to reflect sunlight and asphalt roofs that contain cooling granules.
