Tax Rebates as a Tool for Metal Roofing Installers

Now is the time for all good metal roofing installers to come to the aid of their customers and reach out to all potential customers. Yes, the economy isn’t what we’d all like it to be, but it’s up to you to make sure you take care of what you can control. There are opportunities out there that are working in your favor right now!  You’ve all heard about the stimulus package and the tax rebates available for consumers installing energy efficient products — everything from metal roofing to windows, insulation and water heaters. That tax rebate has to be a tool that metal roofing installers use to sell more metal roofing. I talked to a Florida metal roofing installer in late June who installs exposed fastener panels on residential re-roofing projects — he is matching the price of asphalt shingle installations. And he’s able to do this because the price of asphalt shingles is climbing due to its petroleum base. He said it is more cost efficient for his company to install metal panels over a single layer of asphalt shingles than it is to tear off asphalt and put down another asphalt roof. It’s possible the price of metal is closer to asphalt roofing than it’s ever been. What are you going to do about it? Jim Austin Metal Roofing Magazine, senior editor Tags: ,
