Grants to renovate your roof. Think about it!

Grants to renovate your roof. Think about it!

UPDATE: The Rénovert tax credit has not been renewed by the Quebec government. It is no longer possible to take advantage of it since April 1, 2019.

Again this year, you can benefit from attractive grants to help you carry out your roofing work in an eco-responsible manner.

Two government grants are available: Rénoclimat and RénoVert

This governmental measure aims to allow you to carry out work that will improve your energy rating.

Of course, some rules and criteria apply. Here is a short guide to help you find your way around.

RénoVert tax credit

Good news, the RénoVert refundable tax credit has been extended until March 31, 2019. This grant is temporary, so now is the time to take advantage of it. You could receive a credit of up to $10,000 for your renovations. To claim your credit for the 2018 tax year, you must have paid for your work by January 1, 2019.
