The U.S. government supported program that will finance your new roof

Government-supported PACE programs are replacing roofs and increasing the value of Florida homes


Behind all of the government bureaucracy, there is an excellent opportunity that’s literally waiting for you to reap. The government supported PACE program will finance your roof and raise the value of your home.

A new roof on the government's dime

Property Assessed Clean Energy financing, or PACE as it is known, is a government supported program for financing energy efficiency and improvements on private property. PACE programs exist for residential properties, referred to as R-PACE, as well as commercial properties, referred to as C-PACE.

Tax credits

PACE funding makes it easier to qualify for environmental tax credits.

As of 2017, over 150,000 homeowners in the US have made $4 billion in energy efficiency and other improvements to their homes through PACE financing. One of the most popular home improvements made under PACE is a roof replacement.

The roof over our heads is one of the most underappreciated components of our lives. It’s easy to forget that we’re comfortably insulated from the sun, rain, wind, hail and pests while we remain safe and cozy inside our homes. Homeowners would be wise to invest in their roofs, not only for personal comfort but to raise their home’s overall value.

Three more good reasons to replace your roof

  • 1. Energy efficiency
    A big advantage of replacing your roof comes in the form of energy savings and, in turn, the reduced spending on utilities. Energy cost savings can be as high as 20% depending on climate and electricity rates. There are “cool roofs” for hot climates and “performance roofs” for cold climates. If you live in a warm climate area, a cool roof will absorb less heat and can be up to 60° F cooler than conventional materials. In addition, an energy efficient roof will reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.


  • 2. Curb appeal
    You don't need to be selling your house in order for you to care about its appearance. When it comes to your home’s exterior, your roof makes a great visual impact.


  • 3. Peace of mind
    Why stay up nights wondering whether your roof will hold up much longer? Even a small leak can cause damage to dry walls and flooring that can cost you $20,000 or more. A new roof gives you the peace of mind that your home, and your loved ones, are safe and comfortable.

The Bottom Line

A new roof will not only save you money on utilities and repairs, it will also significantly increase your home’s value and curb appeal. And when you take into account that the government supports it and you can pay it off over time, it’s no wonder so many Florida homeowners are replacing their old roofs with new ones. After all, these days we could all use a little help from Uncle Sam.
