Ways That a Commercial Roofing Contractor Can Help Building Owner’s Save

Did you know that a commercial roofing contractor can not only stop leaks and replace a building’s roof, but they also save the owner money on their taxes? I will get to that in a minute, because a commercial roofing contractor has lots of knowledge regarding some things that most people don’t know they know about, like saving money on utilities, and what commercial building owners can do to take advantage of tax credits that the federal government is offering to building owners wanting green roofing bitumen roof coating.

The newest trends in commercial building construction are not only environmentally friendly, but they can also put quite a bit of money back into the owner’s pocket. I’m talking about green roofing and how a commercial roofing contractor can create a beautiful retreat atop commercial buildings. These fabulous gardens can provide a place to soak up the sunny Southern California weather and turn it into cash for commercial property owners.

In some places in the world architects are getting together with commercial roofing contractors and designing some really amazing green roofing spaces atop commercial buildings that would normally just soak up the hot sun and transfer that heat into the interior of the building, there by driving utility costs up. Some commercial building owners are then leasing these spaces out to nurseries or to biotech companies and thereby increasing their generated incomes with normally wasted spaces.

Now here is the best part, the Federal Government has passed several different bills that allow commercial property owners to take advantage of tax credits for retrofitting existing building with environmentally friendly materials and materials that cut energy costs. A commercial roofing contractor can assess just what types of options are available to building owners depending on the structural integrity of the building, but think of the possibilities!

Now a commercial roofing contractor cannot tell the commercial building owner just how much of a tax credit an owner can claim on their taxes, but they can tell the owner which materials qualify and how much of an initial cost the building owner will have to pay for the green roofing. Only a tax professional can give commercial building owners advice about what they need to do to qualify, because there is a certification requirement that must be made, and the IRS recommends that commercial building owners get that certificate from a tax professional.
