Vinyl Siding Receiving Help From Congress

Vinyl Siding Receiving Help From Congress

At Erie Construction Mid West, we want to make sure consumers are informed and have nothing to complain about when it comes being knowledgeable of the different products and services we offer. Recently, a house bill approved last week to provide incentives for homeowners to install better insulation includes an amendment co-sponsored by Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy that she said would boost the vinyl-siding industry in Ohio.

The Kilroy amendment would offer rebates to homeowners who install insulated vinyl siding as part of a plan to reduce their energy use. According to the Columbus Democrat, four of the nine vinyl-siding plants in the country are in Ohio. Erie Construction Mid West has plenty of loyal customers in Ohio, so we want to make sure they are well-informed on any new changes being made that they could benefit from. No complaints there, right?

The $6.6 billion “Cash for Caulkers” measure, which passed the House by a vote of 246-161, would provide as many as 3 million homeowners with rebates to finance better insulation and energy-saving doors and windows. Erie Construction Mid West can work out a perfect payment plan for you.

Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Genoa Township, who co-sponsored the Kilroy amendment, then joined most Republicans in opposing the bill, contending that it was not paid for. Breann Gonzalez, a Tiberi spokeswoman, said that “at a time when 43 cents on every dollar that the U.S. spends is borrowed, do taxpayers really want to pick up another $6.6 billion tab?”

While we all could complain about paying more taxes, judge for yourself whether this new bill can benefit you. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us for more information.
