Commercial Roof Maintenance Tax Tips for 2017

Remember to always consult with a Certified Public Accountant regarding tax deductions for your property.

Commercial Roof Maintenance Tax Deductions

Learn how commercial building owners can receive big tax breaks for roof maintenance & repairs

The IRS issued regulations in 2014 outlining detailed rules for how repairs and maintenance expenses are deducted. The tangible property regulations affect all taxpayers who improve, repair, or dispose of tangible property and provide a framework for distinguishing deductible costs from costs that must be capitalized.

Stop Using Your Roof As A Work Platform


Who’s Working On Your Commercial Roof?

Learn how to STOP damages to your roof caused by other contractors

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your building envelope, a fact made especially apparent during Florida’s rainy season. A leaky roof can cause much stress for a commercial property manager due to upset tenants, damaged equipment, and expensive repair bills. Your roof is a substantial investment that should be critically cared for all year round. But time and again we get called out to fix new roofs experiencing leaks only months after they were installed. Why does this happen? Did the roofer not install the system correctly? It’s very unlikely. The most common suspect is another contractor using the roof as a staging area to perform work other than roofing...
