Can My Roof Still be Worked on When it’s Raining?

Updated June 2022

Now that we are entering into a time of hot, sunny days, you may not be worried about whether your roof can be worked on when it is raining. If you live in Marin, Sonoma, Napa, or anywhere in California, you may want to think again. The devasting fires have started again and the supply chain delays for construction materials to rebuild homes are keeping contractors of all stripes very busy. That includes roofing contractors who employ experienced roofers to tackle your roofing installation.

Can I Claim A New Roof On My Tax Return?

That depends. Roof repairs are part of the regular and timely work responsible homeowners are expected to complete to protect their overall investments. That is considered regular maintenance and not a deduction.  An entire new roof for your residence is considered a home improvement but is also not a tax deductible expense.
