Re: List Of Shingles Available For Energy Rebates.


Have you seen any regular asphalt shingles with an Energy Star label, it seems to good to be true.

Are you trying to tell me they can get a tax credit for a regular asphalt shingle? I doubt it.

Look at the list. There are several regular style shingles that qualify.

So US manufactured only? We use IKO here almost exclusively (made in Canada) they didn't make the list? Well at least we are using recycled (40%). I didn't see Atlas there, they are made here, are they not on there?
Tax benefits are great for us. Thank you Mr. President.

I was doing some research after reading this post and found this link. I just found it and haven't read through it completely but looks like $1500 is the cap.

Remember though.....It's how you invoice them.

Materials can and should be marked up when you are selling them to the end user.

I have the CertainTeed Certification form for the tax credit. It was emailed to me by a CertainTeed Rep. I tried to uplaod it but the file was too large.

Landmark Solaris is eligible but Iíve never heard of it until now.

Asphalt 3 tab shingles in white are eligible but Iím not enthused about offering a 3 tab.

I wouldn't be thrilled about offering just a plain old white 3-tab shingle also,

But,.....

What about the Newly Approved Energy Star Shingles, with identical 12" offset sections for a uniform aesthetic appeal?

I bet you could sell those "New" shingles for about an additional 50% markup, especially since they will get further rebated back to the home owner if your invoice marks the product up to the Cap Limit.
