Solar panel mounting is achievable on firm and stable surfaces with exposure to direct sunlight. Nowadays, technicians can mount solar collecting devices on almost any surface, including walls, windows, and, of course, rooftops.
The roof needs to be in sound condition concerning structure, material, age, and wear. The solar installation process is a great time to take care of roof repair work, since the cost can be claimed under the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which reduces the cost by 30% via a tax credit.
Although there are different roof designs, construction, and covering methods, our licensed technicians will always securely fasten the solar panel mounts into the rafter through the underlayment and the sheathing.
Roofs are covered using various materials: asphalt shingles, metal, wood shake, concrete tiles, and other materials. Solar panel roof mounts are available for each roof covering type to enable a secure mounting to the underlying rafters. This variation also prevents voiding roofing warranties and minimizes the material impact on the roof and its aesthetics.
