The Resilient Roofing Rebate Program is available to homeowners who are replacing their roofs and are looking to upgrade to impact-resistant products to protect their homes from severe weather damage.
The AARA is one of the associations involved in the Resilient Roofing Rebate program launched by the City of Calgary on June 1, 2021. The rebate program is a three-year phased program that offers a $3,000 rebate for homeowners who experienced hail damage and have replaced or plan to replace their roof with a certified Class 4 impact-resistant product.
The program is set to run until May 31, 2024, or until all funding is fully allocated, whichever occurs first. One of the requirements to be eligible for this program is to have a roof installed with a Class 4 IR hail-resistant roofing product that is inspected by a third-party AARA or ARCA-approved inspector. If the contractor used was an AARA or ARCA member at the time of roof replacement the roof will not require a third-party inspection to be eligible for the rebate program.
