Does Spanish Clay tile roof qualify for a tax credit? I saw that metal and some asphalt roofs qualify for the $2,000 tax incentive.

Roofs installed prior to December 31, 2011 are eligable for tax credits if they are metal or asphalt shingle energy star approved.

See this page on the Energy Savers website for more details.

Clay tile roofs are not eligible.
