Unlocking the Power of Savings: The Federal Solar Tax Credit

Let’s discuss a significant financial benefit that can sweeten the deal of going solar: the federal solar tax credit. Often called the “solar tax credit” for simplicity, its official name is the residential clean energy tax credit. This credit allows you to deduct some of the costs associated with installing a solar panel system on your home. Think of it as a tax break that can significantly reduce the upfront cost of your solar investment.

Here’s a breakdown of the federal solar tax credit:

  • Eligible Expenses: The credit covers equipment and installation of solar panels. It’s important to note that structural work solely to support the panels doesn’t qualify.
  • Credit Percentage: As of 2024 (taxes filed in 2025), the credit is a generous 30% of your eligible costs. This incentive is scheduled to remain at 30% through 2032.
  • Geek Tip: The federal solar tax credit is technically an investment tax credit (ITC). This means it’s an incentive from the government to encourage investment in renewable energy sources like solar power.
  • Good News for Future Thinkers: In 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act extended the availability of solar tax credits through 2034.

The New York State Solar Energy System Equipment Credit

Who is eligible?

You are entitled to claim this credit if you:

  • purchased solar energy system equipment,
  • entered into a written agreement for the lease of solar energy system equipment, or
  • entered into a written agreement that spans at least ten years for the purchase of power generated by solar energy system equipment not owned by you.

The solar energy system must use solar radiation to produce energy for heating, cooling, hot water, or electricity for residential use.  The system must also be installed and used at your principal residence in New York State.

How much is the credit?

The credit is equal to 25% of your qualified solar energy system equipment expenditures and is limited to $5,000.

  • The solar energy system equipment credit is not refundable. However, any credit amount in excess of the tax due can be carried over for up to five years.
  • It is SUPER IMPORTANT to check with your financial consultant or CPA to confirm your eligibility for any tax credits or deductions.

What’s Under That Roof?

Hey there, Long Island! Gina’s back on the roof, and this time she’s uncovering a hidden cost that can surprise homeowners during a replacement.

Here’s the thing: until we remove the old shingles, we can’t see the condition of the plywood beneath them. This plywood is crucial for a strong, secure roof. Unfortunately, the plywood sometimes needs replacing due to factors like poor ventilation, leaks, or just age.

That’s why at Marcor Construction, we ALWAYS explain this possibility to our customers BEFORE we start the job. We believe in transparency and want to avoid any surprises down the line. But sometimes, folks don’t understand why there’s an extra charge.

Here’s the truth: a healthy roof needs healthy plywood! Gina’s up there ensuring your roof gets the TLC it deserves, not just a quick fix.

Want to avoid hidden costs? Call Marcor Construction for a thorough inspection and upfront estimate! We’ll be there to answer all your questions and ensure your roof is solid from the top down.

Why Choosing the Right Contractor Matters

Who’s On Your Roof?

Ever heard the saying, “If you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur”? When it comes to your roof, this couldn’t be more true. Your roof is the shield protecting your entire home from the elements. One mistake during a repair or replacement can lead to a cascade of problems, from leaks and water damage to structural issues and even safety hazards.

That’s where the question arises: Who’s On Your Roof?

At Marcor Construction, this isn’t just a catchy tagline – it’s our commitment to homeowner education and safety. We see far too many roofing projects fail because homeowners were lured in by the promise of a quick fix or a “discount” price. Unfortunately, these shortcuts often lead to bigger problems down the road, costing you more time, money, and stress in the long run.

So, why shouldn’t you take a chance on your roof?

Here are some key reasons to choose a reputable, experienced contractor like Marcor Construction:

  • Expertise: Roofing is a skilled trade. Skilled roofers understand the nuances of different materials, installation techniques, and local building codes. They can identify potential problems before they escalate and ensure your roof is built to last.
  • Licensing and Insurance: Beware of unlicensed or under-insured contractors. In the event of an accident or faulty installation, you could be left holding the bag for repairs and injuries. Marcor Construction is fully licensed and insured, offering peace of mind throughout the project.
  • Quality Materials: Not all roofing materials are created equal. A reputable contractor will use high-quality materials that are designed to withstand the elements in your specific climate. This translates to a longer lifespan for your roof and fewer repairs in the future.
  • Safety First: Roofing is inherently dangerous. Marcor Construction prioritizes safety by employing a fully trained and equipped crew, adhering to all safety protocols.

Choosing the right contractor doesn’t have to be a gamble.

By educating yourself and partnering with a company like Marcor Construction, you can ensure your roof is in the hands of qualified professionals. We’ll work with you to understand your needs, provide a transparent and fair quote, and get the job done right – the first time.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be diving deeper into specific topics related to roof maintenance, repairs, and replacements. Stay tuned to learn more about how to protect your home – and your wallet – with the right roofing solutions.

Remember, when it comes to your roof, don’t settle for less.

Choose Marcor Construction – the trusted name for quality, safety, and peace of mind.

Beyond the Iron Triangle: Building a Roof That Lasts

Have you ever heard of the “iron triangle” of service? It says you can only have two out of three things: good, fast, and cheap. This blog post throws a wrench in that outdated notion, especially when it comes to something as crucial as your roof.

Why “Good” Isn’t Negotiable

At Marcor Construction, we believe “good” shouldn’t even be a question. A quality roof protects your most valuable asset – your home. Sacrificing quality for speed or a lower price tag can lead to disaster down the line. Think about it this way: a poorly constructed roof will likely leak, require repairs sooner rather than later, and could even compromise the structural integrity of your house. In the long run, “cheap” becomes extremely expensive.

The Myth of “Good and Cheap”

The iron triangle suggests slowing down the work can magically make it cheaper. This isn’t true. Sure, you might spread the cost out over more time, but the work itself will still require the same level of expertise and materials.

The DIY Trap

Some homeowners attempt the “good and cheap” route by tackling roof repairs themselves. This can be a costly mistake. Without the proper training and experience, it’s easy to miss crucial details or simply not create a structurally sound roof. When you realize the DIY approach wasn’t worth it, you’ll end up paying a professional to fix the mess, negating any initial savings.

Timely Quality: The Marcor Difference

While speed alone shouldn’t be the top priority, our roofing experts at Marcor Construction understand the importance of completing the job in a reasonable timeframe. A roof that takes too long to complete can leave your home vulnerable to the elements.

Our Commitment: Good, Fast (when possible), and Transparent

We strive to deliver exceptional service (“good”) efficiently (“fast” when project timelines allow). We achieve this through:

  • Experienced and properly insured roofing professionals: Our team has the expertise to tackle any roofing project with precision and speed.
  • High-quality materials: We use only the best materials to ensure your roof lasts decades.
  • Clear communication: We keep you informed throughout the process, so you always know what to expect.

Don’t settle for the iron triangle’s false choices. Marcor Construction offers a better solution: a quality roof built efficiently and at a fair price. Let us help you safeguard your home with a roof you can trust.
