Installing Rooftop Solar Panels

Are you a homeowner thinking about having new rooftop solar panels installed on your home? Be sure to make an informed decision before moving forward, and ask yourself these three questions below.

Questions To Ask

  • What does my roof look like?
  • How is the condition under my roof?
  • Is the warranty on both my roof and the solar panels?

What To Look For

Homeowners should know that it is crucial to replace your roofing system before installing solar panels. An average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is 30 years, depending on the materials used. Furthermore, homeowners should understand that inspecting the inside of the roofing system is just as important as checking the outside. Specifically, a homeowner should check for damaged rafters or trusses, leaks or stains, dark-looking spots, and mildew in the attic space. If your roof reflects any of the warning signs above, consider getting a roofing estimate from a professional roofing contractor.

Additionally, it is essential to ask yourself what the warranties are between the roofing installation and the solar panels. To clarify, it wouldn’t make much sense if the roof would only last another 10 to 15 years compared to the solar panels lasting, in some cases, almost 20 years. As a result, homeowners would have to remove the solar panels to install new roofing and then reinstall the solar panels back onto the new roof. Lastly, understanding the cost and harm of installing rooftop solar panels on an old roof can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars and protect your investment from any future damage.
