Now that snow is already falling in Northeast Ohio, you may be focused on keeping your commercial building warm and the walkways clear.

Commercial building owners can benefit from new tax rules affecting the expensing of new roofs and other qualified property.

While the R-value of your flat roof may not be top-of-mind for commercial building owners, it can be useful to understand how it factors into the overall efficiency and cost savings of your building.
