In addition to adding excellent protection to your home, this year installing ENERGY STAR®-qualified asphalt shingle roofing in Arlington may qualify you for a federal tax credit of up to $500. Recent legislation made the tax credit retroactive: any roof installed on a primary residence between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2013 is eligible.

ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that encourages consumers to save money and protect the environment by using energy-efficient products and practices that meet strict energy efficiency guidelines – everything from refrigerators to roofing. This is an important distinction, because some roofing products can reduce peak cooling demand up to 15% and lower roof temperatures up to 100°F!

To receive the tax credit, the shingles you choose must have a Manufacturer’s Certification Statement qualifying them as an ENERGY STAR-certified product, and you must file the appropriate form with your federal tax return.
