As you can see, White from Certainteed did not get entered on the list.

Here is the list of all of the shingle products and manufacturers that I just made a new document out of, out of that entire 115 page report.

What About Replacement Windows?

There is a list of all brands and which shingles qualify for the credit.

I tried cut and pasting it last night, but deleted it by mistake. I need to do it again. Whoops!!!

Here is that link:

http://downloads.energystar.gov/bi/q..._prod_list.pdf


By the way, are Windows capped out at $1,500.00

I read that one original version of the bill was going to be 30%, with no cap on the amount to be refunded? See the print in red. Did that go through?


Ed



The part that I copied is from page 2 of this article.

New Rules With Stimulus

All that said, now comes the better news. The rules governing energy tax credits may change with passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, i.e., the stimulus bill already passed by the House. Surviving in both House and Senate versions are new rules that raise the total one-time amount of tax credits available to homeowners buying home improvement products from 10% of their purchase to 30%, to a maximum of $1,500.

Better yet, the new rules contain no sub-cap on windows or skylights. Translation: A homeowner buying $5,500 worth of your company's Energy Star-approved windows could get a full third of his or her purchase amount back when filing their taxes.

At press time the new figure was "still in discussion," according to Nils Petermann, of the Alliance to Save Energy, in Washington. Petermann says that with 60% of windows now qualifying for tax credits under the current plan, some Senate researchers want to raise qualifying criteria so that only 10% to 20% of windows on the market would be eligible for tax credits. "If more than half the product on the market qualifies the homeowner for tax credits, that's a big cost for Uncle Sam," he says.
Steve Nadel, executive director of the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, says the fact that these expanded tax credits are part of the stimulus bill — and are therefore only available for a limited time — may create a sense of urgency among homeowners who are considering replacing windows, doors, or other qualified home improvement products.

Are you familiar with how the rebates work?

I have never done this before, but if they can get 30% back, is that on just materials or 30% of the entire contract?

If just materials only, does the material invoice need to be included with their rebate or do I just represent an amount on my invoice for them?

I am not sure if the Canadian stimulus is similar to the American stimulus package but if I understand correctly here in Canada it is on the overall contract price.
Government wants anyone who may be considering renovating to jump on the bandwagon. This will hopefully get contractors working and jump start the construction economy.
In Canada you have to hire contractor who is GST registered to qualify for the rebate. My wife has all the correct info if any Canadian contractors need any assistance.

Post the information please.

We have a few Canadians that post on this forum.

Energy star label

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.

Ct Certification

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 I’ve never heard of it until now.

Asphalt 3 tab shingles in white are eligible but I’m 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.
