When considering solar, roofing must also be considered. A sound roof is a prerequisite to solar installation. The physical work and most of the risks related to a solar installation are due to the roof. Roofing plays an important role, ensuring your house is protected from bad weather. Investing in your roofing guarantees that you avoid future costs.
If the roof is not acceptable for solar installation, then this should be considered an ideal opportunity to replace the roof. Replacing the roof at the time of solar installation saves time and money and provides a clean finish. It also avoids the hassle and costs of removing and replacing the solar panels if the roof needs to be repaired or replaced after solar is installed.
Regular roofing services are an important part of the solar system maintenance, as they extend the life of the roof solar panels. Moreover, roofing services will prevent you from acquiring future expenses in roof repair. Professional roofing services and check-ups are a matter of safety. If you decide to manage roof repair yourself, it can be risky as roofs are often slippery. Sometimes there is no other way than a professional roof repair, and it can become a headache finding reliable roofing companies.
LA Solar Group provides roofing and roofing-plus-solar solutions, including cool roofs, roof-integrated solar, composite shingle, and concrete tile. LA Solar gets materials from industry-leading manufacturers such as CertainTeed, Shingle Master, and GAF. Depending on the situation, you can elect to replace the entire roof or just the roof under the solar panels. You can choose to perform a roof integration installation for a clean finish. This cost of installing a new roof, especially partial re-roofing just under the solar panels, is not as high as many believe. This is especially true considering the available rebates and tax incentives for installing energy-efficient cool roofs. There is also a 30% federal tax credit that applies to roof work necessary for solar installation. Please consult your tax adviser regarding income tax credit eligibility.
Roof solar panels are a great alternative to regular roofs and can serve as a source of energy. Roof solar panels are also a nice choice for producing electricity for electric cars. Also, it is possible to sell unused power back to the grid. For all of these reasons, roof solar panels are considered to be a very good investment.
