Customers of TAMKO Building Products, Inc.’s MetalWorks Shingles may now be able to apply for up to $1,500 of Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credits while getting a beautiful, state-of-the-art metal roof.
All MetalWorks Shingles in “cool colors” were recently named ENERGY STAR-qualified products, making them eligible for application for the American Reinvestment & Recovery Act federal tax credits of 2009. Each MetalWorks Cool Color product is also rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council. Customers should see their tax professionals to ensure they qualify before making their product selection.
The MetalWorks Cool Color Shingles have an initial solar reflectance that meets or exceeds ENERGY STAR’s requirements of at least 25 percent and a maintenance solar reflectance of at least 15 percent after three years of normal use. The shingles’ high solar reflectance keeps the attic cooler and may help lower energy costs for the building.
To provide information on TAMKO’s Energy Star-qualified products to those customers interested in applying for the tax credits, TAMKO recently added an “ARRA Tax Credits” link to the bottom of its website www.TAMKO.com.
“TAMKO has combined the durability and trusted strength of steel with potential energy-saving technology and now customers can benefit from it,” says Stephen McNally, vice president of sales/marketing. “MetalWorks Shingles offer the combination of aesthetics and performance and are the ideal choice for residential and commercial buildings.”
