Wilmington, NC (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- Advanced Metal Roofing owner, James Kenton, announces news of an increased tax credit for homeowners who purchase and install Energy StarÂ® labeled metal roofing. The increased Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency, updated for 2009, are a result of President Obama's new Stimulus Package and qualified homeowners may be eligible for a tax credit worth 30% of the cost of a new metal roof, up to $1,500.
Advanced Metal Roofing installs the exclusive MetalMan Roofing System [http://www.metalmanroofing.com/] and uses Energy StarÂ® rated reflective roofing products with each installation. Energy StarÂ® qualified metal roof products reflect more of the sun's rays which can lower roof surface temperature and decrease the amount of heat allowed to enter the home. This not only helps to keep the home cooler in itself, but will, in turn, help to reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in the house and can then reduce the energy needed to cool the home during the hot summer months. This benefits the homeowner and the environment together by reducing energy and energy-related costs.
James Kenton, owner of Advanced Metal Roofing, says: "Advanced Metal Roofing has always concentrated on offering energy efficient, American made metal roofing products, to the point where we now offer Energy StarÂ® rated products exclusively with the MetalMan Roofing System. All of Advanced Metal Roofing's 16 Kynar 500Â® paint finishes, including black, meet the requirements for the Federal energy tax credit. Plus, we are now able to offer a 42% Energy Savings Pledge because of the high-performing Kynar 500Â® finish."
Advanced Metal Roofing specializes in residential metal roofing installation. Established in 1994, this family owned and operated metal roofing company began offering the MetalMan Roofing System exclusively in July 2008. The MetalMan Roofing System is constructed of Galvalume steel, Cool Roof Technology with Energy StarÂ® qualified products, and the industry-best Kynar 500Â® paint finish.
Homeowners who purchase and install a new metal roof that uses Energy StarÂ® rated materials between now and December 31, 2010 can be eligible for the increased federal tax credit that rewards citizens who make energy efficient choices to benefit themselves, the community, and the environment as a whole.
