With this tax credit the home owner Knows how much the materials cost? Is this true? We prefer not to disclose this information

Yes. Essentially the tax credit is only on the cost of the materials before tax. So basically the customer would have to know this in order to file for the tax credit.

Is the tax credit based on a percentage of the materials? And does materials mean just the metal for the roof, or does that include the cleats, screws, underlayment, etc.?

I have a question relating to the new updated $1500 tax credit. I have been told this increased from $500, but that it only relates to materials and not install costs. I also read that it's not straight $1500, but 30% of materials with a max of $1500. Is this correct.

Cindy, The tax credit is based on a percentage of the materials. It is talking about the roof system, so all the materials including trim etc would apply. Roland, The increase from $500 to $1500 was what changed in the new stimulus package. It is only for the material costs. It is 30% up to a $1500 max as you mentioned.
