U.S. Homeowner Tax Credits Extended for Cool Metal Roofs in 2017
The cool roof tax credits for residential homeowners that were set to expire in 2016 have been renewed and are now available retroactively for qualified improvements made through December 31, 2017.
The tax credit includes ENERGY STAR qualified metal roofs and other types of certified “cool roofs” that are designed to reflect the sun’s rays and help lower roof temperatures by as much as 50 percent. The tax credit amount limit for 2017 is 10 percent of the roof’s cost up to $500, not including installation costs.
