Do you offer custom colors? What are the minimums to order?

Yes. CMG regularly and routinely produces and provides custom-finished products for a great number of projects and uses.

Am I eligible for a $500 tax credit for installing a metal roof?

Roofing materials that meet Energy Star requirements reflect more of the sun’s rays and can lower roof surface temperature by up to 100° F. Qualifying roofing materials include metal roofs with appropriate pigmented coatings and asphalt roofs with appropriate cooling granules.

2014 tax credit: 10 percent of cost, not including installation, up to $500

Check with IRS or a qualified tax account for any changes in tax credits prior to filing taxes.

Do I qualify for a discount on my homeowner’s insurance for installing a metal roof?

Yes. Depending on overall project design, specification and detailing, CMG offers several products that may qualify for a reduction and/or credit to homeowner’s insurance premiums. Please contact your CMG representative for specific information.
