A solar panel system will last you 30 to 35 years. In that time, your solar panels will generate plenty of savings on your electric bills. Most solar companies don’t offer roofing services, although there are some exceptions. Either way, re-roofing is commonly done alongside a solar installation, and your solar contractor likely has good referrals for roofers in your area to contact. Before you install solar panels, consider having your roof evaluated to make sure it can withstand installation, especially if the roof is towards the end of its life.
- Asphalt pairs with solar panels as there is no fire hazard with them and they also can handle a bunch of wear and tear.
- Tiles are very commonly paired with solar panels because the panels are easily attached to the brackets of the tiles.
- Standing seam metal is very easy to attach solar panels to because you don’t need to drill any holes in the material and the installation is very fast.
