Want to install solar? Let’s look at the roof.

It’s important to have a good roof that can support a 25+ year investment. When we conduct a site-visit, we will inspect your roof and report any damage or upgrades that you may need, whether you decide to go solar or not.  We offer re-roofing services for all asphalt & metal roof systems.

Should I re-roof before installing solar?

Most of the time, re-roofing is not required. However, if your roof is going to need replacing in the next 5-7 years, it is a good idea to get it re-roofed prior to installing solar so you don’t have to pay additional labor to remove the solar system.  If you have ever had leaks, or if the shingles are showing signs of wear, it may be time for a new roof. If you are interested in a free roof inspection, let us know prior to our site-visit and we’ll have our roof professional take a look for you.

Benefits of re-roofing with solar

If you are thinking of re-roofing your home, there’s no better time to install solar. We can install our flashings as the roof is laid, ensuring the best possible quality of installation. In addition, if a re-roof is required under the area where we are installing solar panels, it is possible to earn additional tax credits, saving you up to 30% off of the roofing costs!
