Many of its devastating effects remain as we creep out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Supply chain issues, inflation, and labor shortages are constant obstacles facing most United States industries.
In seeking solutions, many commercial roofing companies in Albuquerque are implementing innovations to overcome these obstacles. Enchanted Roofing wants you to look out for the latest trends in commercial roofing that can save you money.
The roofing industry is now beginning to embrace solar panel technology. The latest trend in roofing installation incorporates solar panels directly into the roofing design. This decreases the maintenance performed on roof installations while saving money on regulation planning.
There are also New Mexico tax incentives and credits you can utilize to help you pay for your new solar rooftop installation.
New Mexico has two federal solar tax incentives for commercial solar panel installations.
The first is the Federal Tax Credit for Solar Photovoltaics, also known as the Income Tax Credit (ITC). Companies installing systems in 2022 and 2023 will receive a 30% tax credit for these installations.
The second incentive for commercial buildings is the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS). This depreciation plan helps commercial building owners recoup solar system expenditures through tax deductions.
The New Mexico Solar Market Development Tax Credit, also known as the New Mexico Solar Tax Credit, benefits small to medium-sized commercial installations. This gives commercial building owners a 10% tax credit on their solar systems that are installed and turned on.
This commercial tax credit incentive requires a third party to certify the building’s sustainability. The average tax credit ranges from $1,000 to $2,900.
As we become more conscious of what we put into the environment, creating sustainability for the types of commercial roofing materials we use is more important than ever.
One-way roofers do this is by installing green roof spaces on top of commercial buildings. This involves creating a medium for plants to grow in, usually as part of the roof’s insulation. There are many benefits to installing a green roof.
Traditionally, rainwater is drained directly into the sewer or released into the surrounding urban environment, where it is wasted.
The plants on a green roof absorb the water that would usually be wasted.
Green roofs offer protection from environmental events such as rain, wind, and excessive sun. By protecting your roof from the elements that typically deteriorate a roofing system, your roof will last longer than before.
Green roofs provide an extra layer of insulation. This helps your building remain cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. All of this adds up to lower energy costs.
Plants absorb carbon dioxide, the harmful gases released into the air. Not only do green roofs help with absorbing carbon dioxide, but they also create habitats for wildlife that have been displaced due to urbanization.
There has been a rise in the demand for synthetic and metal roofing. These roofing systems last longer lifespans and protect your roof from the sun’s rays.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is the white roofing system on flat commercial buildings. When correctly installed and maintained, this type of roofing system lasts up to 30 years. This is double the lifespan of a typical asphalt shingle system.
TPO’s white reflective surface wards off the UV rays from the sun. This keeps your building cooler and translates into lower energy costs.
Metal roofing also has a longer lifespan ranging from 30 to 70 years, if properly maintained. Unlike older metal roofing systems, new metal roofs now contain a reflective coating. Much like TPO, metal roofs reflect the sun’s rays keeping your building cooler and your energy costs down.
Both metal and TPO roofing systems also provide fire resistance, are easy to maintain, and stand up to New Mexico’s environmental elements better than other roofing systems.
