Available Space — Finding adequate space on a roof that is facing east, south, or west is the largest obstacle in design.
Shaded Roof — Homes have been traditionally placed next to large shading trees to lower the roofs sun exposure. A roof with shade-free available space is a necessity for a high-performance home solar system.
Roofing Material — Different roofing types require specific flashing materials. The roofing type will need to be identified for a precise estimate to be calculated. Asphalt shingle, and metal roof are the most common roof types we in counter followed by Spanish tile and slate.
Roof Age — The age of the roof is especially important with asphalt shingle roofs. Solar panels are expected to last 25+ years so a roof’s remaining life is an important factor to take into consideration.
Asphalt Shingle — We only recommend installing solar on shingles that are in good condition. This is typically 5 years for builder grade shingles and under 10 years for high quality shingles. We use the highest quality solar flashing available.
Metal Roof — Roof mounted solar energy systems work best on standing seam metal roofs. Attachment clamps require ZERO penetrations and the metal roof will often last the life span of the solar modules. We use S-5 clamps for most metal roof installations.
Tile Roofs (Clay and Slate) — High quality material for tile roofs is readily available but the process of working on fragile tiles keeps us from taking on tile roof installations. We only work on tile roofs that have a hard surface below where a lift can be used to install the system.
Rubber Tile Roof — Although it isn’t very common, rubber roofs work great with solar. The durability of the tiles allows for us to work on these roofs without damage.
Flat Residential and Commercial Roofs — This is ideal for a large open space and we can install more panels on the roof.
