Commercial roofers in Southern California cave me the best opportunity to save money and increase revenue when all I was looking for was someone in Los Angeles to do a simple commercial roof repair. Now, I am leasing out the top of my commercial building to a biotech firm doing medical research.
Commercial green roofs are the latest trend in the construction industry. Many architects are teaming up with professional commercial roofers to design green roofs that not only add beauty to the city's skyline, but also help the environment.
Commercial buildings with flat roofs are not the only types of buildings that commercial roofers can design green roofs for. Even though my building has a flat roof, when I was doing research into the benefits to green roofs I saw lots of examples of green roofs in other parts of the world.
Tax credits offered by the federal government helped pay for most of the work that the roofers did on my building. I did not even know that there were any tax credits available to commercial building owners, until I started to get roofing estimates from various commercial roofers.
The commercial roofers that I hired to do the work also helped me with a water collection system that is being used by the biotech firm that is leasing the top of my building. This water collection system is also qualified for the Federal Government's tax credits, offered to commercial building owners retrofitting their buildings with Energy Star compliant materials.
The roofers that cave me roofing estimates could not tell me how much of a tax credit I could get, but after I talked to my tax professional, I realized that the credit almost paid for the whole job. Luckily I talked to him, because I found out that there is a certification requirement that has to be met before taking the deduction off your taxes. The IRS recommends that commercial building owners obtain the certificate for the deduction from a tax professional to ensure that there will not be any problems with the IRS accepting the deduction.
Now that I have finished retrofitting one of my commercial buildings, I think that I am going to have the commercial roofers do one of my other buildings before the tax credit expires. Currently the tax credit will expire at the end of 2010, but according to my tax professional the credit may be extended soon.
I'd tell you which of the many roofers I got to do my commercial green roof, but if I did he might not have time to do my other buildings before the tax credit expires.
I suggest if you want to find the right commercial roofing company for you, you should do a little research and I am sure you should not have too much trouble finding professional commercial roofers in Los Angeles.
