When it comes to replacing the roof of your business, you want the process to be quick and inexpensive. You don't want to invest a significant amount of money in getting a new roof because your business relies on your revenue. Unfortunately, you can't have your employees working around water leaks either. However, with the following four tips, you can save money on your roofing installation.
Take Advantage of Promotions
Many roofing contractors offer promotions and discounts. If you purchase your roof at the right time, you can lock in tremendous savings on your roofing installation. If you don't find a discount initially, shop around to determine what roofing contractor is offering the best deals on roof installations.
Finance Your Roof At a Discount
Another way to lock in savings with a roofing contractor is to take advantage of their financing options. Many roofers will offer a low-interest introductory period. When you choose to finance with them, you can save a lot of money simply by paying off the balance within the introductory period. Financing your new roof will also help you maintain cash on hand for other business needs.
Use Energy Star Roofing Materials
The Internal Revenue Service is still offering tax credits for roofs that use Energy Star materials. You can install a roof that is Energy Star certified metal roof or certified asphalt roof and lock in a savings of 10%. Of course, there is a limit to the amount of tax credit you can claim. The total of your tax credit can't exceed $500. Additionally, your tax credit can't include the cost of labor.
Get Multiple Roofs Done at Once
In general, when you spend a significant amount of money on materials, you can get a discount. If you own multiple businesses, and you need a roof for each one, then you can lock in additional savings. You should talk to your roofing contractor about ways they can discount your roof so that you can save extra money on your commercial roof installation.
