If you are interested in solar panel installation, the first thing we need to evaluate is the condition of your roof. If you already have panels installed, some of them may need to be replaced before the installing the new solar energy system. There are two scenarios that will determine whether re-roofing with solar panels is necessary for your estate:
- The condition of your roof and panels
- The type of roofing material used
The Condition of your Roof
If it is determined that your roof is leaking, or has darks spots it might mean that you should have your roof replaced before the start of the solar installation. If the roof has become weak, it will not be able to hold up and the solar installation will not be secured correctly. If this is the case, then replacing parts of your roof might be required.
The Type of Roofing Material
As previously stated, roofing materials can also have a significant impact on your solar energy system installation. Certain tiles such as clay, are easily breakable and may not support your solar system, while Spanish tiles or certain metal panels may prevent us from installing a secure solar system on your property. Due to these issues, such panels must be replaced. At LA Solar Group, we offer professional roof inspection services as a part of our service delivery system. Our solar energy professionals in Los Angeles can easily inspect your roof and let you know if you need to replace it. The re-roofing will be done at the same time as the solar installation to make sure that the 10-year warranty is honored.
During the Solar Panel Installation
When solar panel installation is halfway through, we first remove the damaged/affected section, replace it with new panels, and then restore the tiles in order to keep the original look intact of the estate. Although you will not be able to see the new roof under your solar panels, you will still be able to see the tiles outside the solar arrays. We carefully remove the tiles from the roof and replace them only after the panels are installed. To ensure the clean and polished look of the roof, we will simply replace the roof material with premium composite or asphalt roofing.
Always remember that installing solar panels can bring great benefits to your family members, your workers, or whoever is going to be influenced by the result of this reasonable decision. Moreover, our environment benefits the most as a result of such responsible and sustainable actions. Nothing is greener than solar!
