superbonus 110%

"There are many jobs on paper, but it is not easy to understand now how many sites will really open". Valeria Erba, president ofNational association for thermal and acoustic insulation (Anit), thus presents the picture of superbonus 110%, one of the regulatory measures that has attracted the attention of individuals in the last year. If for some time the eco-bonus and all the incentives for energy efficiency have pushed to invest in greener buildings, which guarantee better performance over time, the superbonus has ended up with monopolize attention in the context ofbuilding. “The budget law has extended it until 2022, but we must still wait for the European Union to leave - added Erba - the opportunity is real for those who can afford it, but there is really too much bureaucracy. Perhaps it would have been better to keep the eco-bonus, raising it up to 80% ».

Superbonus 110%: Veneto in the lead

When Italy was still dealing with the first lockdown of spring 2020, public opinion immediately began to inquire about this new superbonus, absorbing the idea that the work to fix the house, in the end, would be free. In reality, the story is much more complex. To date, according to the numbers of True Numbers (taken from Aeneas), is the Veneto the first Region for the number of completed applications (853), followed by Lombardy (833) ed Emilia Romagna (596). Throughout Italy they are almost 7 thousand registered documents In mid-March. «One of the critical points of the superbonus 110% is the compliance verification request to access the incentive. In Milan - explains the president of the Anit - many condominiums are blocked because it takes months just to recover the deeds of the factory. And without that passage you cannot start with the work ». Situation not dissimilar in smaller municipalities, where the shortage of personnel and the health emergency do not make these preliminary operations quick.

How did the supply chain react? On the prices

"Those who manage to access the 110% superbonus will have great benefits in the future," he guarantees Valeria Grass. In terms of efficiency, the jump of two energy classes it means greener condominiums and houses, with less expensive bills and fewer maintenance interventions in the future. All this is undoubtedly an expression of a greater sensitivity towards ecological transition gained in Italy (and is also valid in the field ofcircular economy). However, times are running out for studies of engineers and architects, in the head of which remains the issue of responsibility linked to sworn statements. «The technicians are required to have insurance to operate and the bureaucracy does not make things easier: there are 32 documents to fill in to access the superbonus and the banks require others for the assignment of credit. These are not trivial steps ». With so many requests that start, it is finally the entire supply chain that is invested, with increasingly difficult materials to order and to organize in time. "One of the effects of this boom in demand has been a substantial increase in prices across all the building sectors."
