Energy Incentives

As incentives and rebates continue in a constant state of flux, it can be difficult to navigate finding out the best materials for different building locations.  One great resource is the DSIRE (Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy) which keeps an up to date list of energy incentives by region.  Simply click on your state and review the numerous discounts, tax credits, and rebates available for your state.

In addition, information on the Federal Tax Credit of up to $1.80 per square foot for commercial building owners can be found at This deduction is available for lighting, A/C, and (ofcourse) cool roofing technologies.

Still, what is the real impact of your roofing choices?  How much money can you really save?  One last website that calculates your energy savings with your new roofing selection is the Energy Star Roofing Calculator. Using this tool to determine the energy savings over your existing roof system is a great way to find out what the true life cycle cost of your roof will be.

And if you're in West or South Texas, send us a shout so that we can put together a life cycle cost analysis at no charge just for you!
