I know there will be up to 20% tax incentives starting in 2004 for specific pigmentations of metal roofs for homes. Can you tell me what colors qualify ?

The national energy bill has not yet been passed by the Senate. It is back up for discussion in 2004. There are, however, certain regional incentives for "cool" roofs ... though most of those are currently for commercial roofs, not residential. There are several ways in which a metal roof can be "cool". Those include having a light colored or shiny surface as well as having a surface coating using reflective pigments. Additionally, the very design of the roof panel and the way they are installed can play a major factor in creating a cool roof. Attic ventilation, of course, also plays a role. Consult with metal roofing manufacturers to find out how their roof systems can be "cool" and ask them what supporting test studies and field reports they have to support the "coolness".

Since the last posting in Dec 2003 there still was no final vote on this. Has any progress been made? Is there someplace I can look to see if this has been passed. I want to install a metal roof and would love to get a tax credit even if I have to wait till next year.

I believe that this did not pass the Senate back in April but a revised bill is underway now.
