Historic Home Renovations in MD, VA & DC: Siding & Roofing Choices, Incentives & Rebates

post img

Historic home renovations often include replacing siding and windows to enhance energy efficiency and preserve the home’s charm. New siding options like fiber cement, insulated vinyl, and LP SmartSide offer durability and insulation, reducing utility costs. Energy-efficient replacement windows with double or triple panes and low-E coatings maintain historic aesthetics while improving comfort and increasing protection and home value.

Current incentives and rebates offered in Maryland, DC, and Virginia now make these and other upgrades more cost-effective than ever, allowing homeowners to embrace sustainable renovations while respecting historical integrity.

Maryland Roofing & Siding Upgrade Incentives

Maryland homeowners have a unique opportunity to enhance their properties while reaping significant financial benefits. The state, in partnership with various organizations and utilities, offers a variety of incentives and rebates that encourage residents to invest in more energy-efficient roofs, windows, and siding.

  • Window rebates: Qualifying windows that meet ENERGY STAR® requirements can receive a tax credit of 30% of the costs up to $600. Air sealing and insulation are eligible for a 30% credit as well.
  • Skylight installation rebates & credits: When you replace or install one or more skylights in your home, you can receive a 30% tax credit up to $600.
  • Roofing & siding: Maryland’s BeSmart residential programs offer low-interest loans for energy-efficient improvements like new roofing, siding, and windows. The state also offers renewable energy tax credits for products such as cooling roof systems and energy-efficient windows.

A Guide to DC’s Roofing & Siding Rebates

The District of Columbia offers rebates and incentives that help offset the upfront costs of energy-efficient home renovations.

  • DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) offers rebates when you replace existing windows with ENERGY STAR® models. Rebates are also available for insulation upgrades, which can complement new siding.
  • The DC Residential Aid Discount Program provides discounts on windows, roofing, and insulation for low-income households meeting certain eligibility criteria.
  • The DC Property Assessed Clean Energy (DC PACE) Program allows homeowners to finance upgrades like cool roofs and insulated siding through a special tax assessment.

Virginia’s Incentives & Rebates for Roofing & Siding

Virginia homeowners who install new energy-efficient roofing, siding, and windows have several options available:

  • The Virginia ENERGY STAR® sales tax holiday provides an annual sales tax exemption on quality products, including windows, doors, and certain insulation materials.
  • Local utility rebates are available when installing energy-efficient windows, cool roof products, and insulation.
  • The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) website lists grants, rebates, tax credits and deductions, and utility incentives that encourage the state’s residents to adopt energy-efficient measures for their homes.

Choose S&K for Siding & Roofing Upgrades

While most siding hasn’t previously qualified for federal incentives, insulated siding qualifies for a tax credit due to the material’s extra protection against the elements. If the siding is part of a larger energy-efficient renovation that meets specific criteria, it might qualify for a tax credit under the ENERGY STAR® program or other federal incentives. Traditional roofing materials do not currently qualify for federal incentives.
