Installing a Metal Roof Entitles Homeowners to $500 Tax Credit, Among Other Benefits
Your roof is the most important part of your house. Smart homeowners realize the many benefits of using metal roofing, but now the federal government has added another incentive to installing this eco-friendly option. Now, homeowners who add a metal roof to their primary residence, or did so in 2015, are eligible for a $500 tax break. Why else might you want to install a metal roof? There are many advantages of metal roofing, and we've outlined them out for you below.
Metal Roofing is Long Lasting
A metal roof can last a lifetime whereas asphalt shingle roofs require reproofing every 10 to 20 years. Additionally, most metal roofing comes with a true 30- to 50-year manufacturing warranty.
Metal Roofing is Durable
Asphalt roofs are less durable than metal, and this can result in your roof having weather damage due to low-quality materials. These lower quality roofs and roofs over 20 years old have a greater likelihood of succumbing to harsh winter weather like snow accumulation, ice, and high winds. Metal roofing is also a much stronger option, and this is important when it comes to snow. Wet, heavy snow is considerably heavier than dry, fluffy snow with six inches of wet snow being equal to the weight of 38 inches of dry snow.
In a consumer survey, durability was identified as the number one factor when determining which new roof to purchase. With this in mind, why not choose a metal roof?
Metal Roofing Saves on Costs
A cool metal roof can save 25% in energy costs compared to dark gray asphalt shingles. Plus, proper attic insulation can save you between 10 and 50% on your heating and cooling bills, prevent the formation of ice dams, and save you the trouble of expensive roof repairs.
Metal Roofing is Environmentally Conscious
Typically, metal roofs have a minimum of 25% recycled content. They can also be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the cost and eco-impact of tear-off and disposal that comes with standard asphalt roofing. And when it is time for a new roof to be installed, your metal roof is fully recyclable.
