The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 includes a renewal of the tax credit for reflective metal roofing for 2013. As stated by the Energy Star website the tax credit includes 10% of the material cost up to $500 for products installed before December 31, 2013. To qualify you the metal roof must be for an existing home & your principal residence. In addition, if you used your Energy Star tax credit in 2010, 2011 or 2012 you are no longer eligible.
Why does Metal Roofing Qualify for a Tax Credit?
Qualified metal roof products reflect more of the sun’s rays, which can lower roof surface temperature by up to 100F, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into your home. For standing seam metal roofs in PA, NJ and DE we install over 35 “cool coated” colors that qualify for the Energy Star Tax Rebate for Metal Roofing. To receive the full $500 you would need to install roughly 1400 square feet or more depending on the material costs in your region.
