Installation of solar panels can be a complex process, especially for individuals that are not appropriately trained. There are many positive aspects attributed to the installation of solar panels to include lower energy bills, smaller ecological footprint and a better sense of self reliance. In addition to the positives, you may have a number of questions about the integrity of your roof upon installation, as well as questions about the effect of solar panels on the warranty of your roof. In this article, we will answer some of those questions. If you find that you have additional thoughts or concerns, contact us.
How Does a Solar System Affect My Roof Integrity?
With proper design and installation following industry best practices, your roof should maintain all its pre-solar integrity. With this in mind, solar panels can last for upwards of 25 years. It is recommended that you have your current roof inspected before you have solar panels installed. This ensures that you will not have to have your roof and solar panels replaced in the near future. In addition, solar panels are an additional weight placed on your roof. They will require that you have an effective drainage system to avoid unwanted pools of water weighing down your roof and potentially damaging the solar panels.
Will Solar Panels Void My Roofs Warranty?
With proper installation, solar panels will not void the warranty on your roof. However, it is important that you work with a professional company that has shown a proven ability to appropriately install solar panels on your specific type of roof. This knowledge will help you to insulate yourself from unnecessary risks and ensure that the current warranty that your roof is under stays intact. Pacific Green Homes audits and trains all our Authorized Installers on these best practices so that you can rest easy knowing that your roof will be okay. Be sure to ask your installer about any guarantees they offer on their solar installation quality.
