Residential Metal Roof Tax Credit

ASC Building Products metal roofs are coated in our Dura Tech® xl paint system which is formulated with highly reflective cool pigments that increase the solar reflectance and lowers the surface temperature of our metal roofs.

The Dura Tech® xl paint system is offered in a range of cool colors that are Energy Star® certified and may contribute to saving homeowners up to 40% in energy costs.

What is the Metal Roof Tax Credit?

The Federal Energy Star tax credit extends to metal roofs with qualifying “cooling” pigments like those provided by ASC Building Products.

  • Homeowners who made an energy-efficiency home improvement by installing an ASC Building Products ENERGY STAR-qualified metal roof from 2017 to the end of 2021 can currently be claimed.
  • Homeowners with qualifying roofing systems may claim 10% of the material cost (labor is not eligible to be claimed) up to $500.
  • Homeowners who have not submitted for the tax credit for any energy-efficient home improvement (new windows, doors, insulation, or Energy Star-qualified roof) may qualify.
  • The homeowner’s primary residence may be eligible for the tax credit.
