Do you live in a historic home? Ever wonder if you would qualify for rehabilitation tax credits? What’s the benefit of keeping your original wood windows? The Historic Richmond Rehab Expo will include over 20 experts and organizations working in the trade of renovating historic homes. Plus, you can meet with the public agencies that assist with obtaining tax incentives for renovations. Through this event, Historic Richmond hopes to connect people and resources to ensure the continued care of Richmond’s historic buildings.

The event will cover topics such as tax incentives, improving energy efficiency, plasterwork, windows, masonry, roofing, researching historic properties and more. Exhibitors will be available for questions concerning their area of expertise and their table displays will vary between information packets, demonstrations, examples of exhibitors’ work and photographs.

“Ever wonder if you would qualify for rehabilitation tax credits? What’s the benefit of keeping your original wood windows?”

Funny you should mention this. I have rehabbed about 20 houses. Early on I looked into tax credits and found that I could not use vinyl windows. Not even if they looked historic. The idea of keeping energy inefficient single pane windows was so stupid that I turned my back on tax credits. I hope this has changed. (Leave it to our government to offer tax credits for energy saving solar panels, for adding insulation or for installing an energy efficient heating system, but deny historic tax credits for using energy efficient windows.)

@ SA Chaplin – Nonsense! You can use double pane windows on a tax credit rehab, they just have to be wood clad. Sometimes metal clad also appear to be acceptable. You can also put in interior or exterior storms, which are less ideal for energy efficiency but will still help. You can also leave existing vinyl windows in place if they were replaced previously.
