Is My Roof Ready for Solar?

These panels will last for many decades once they are installed. Have a solar consultation to determine the pros and cons of your roof in order to produce consistent, high-quality solar energy.

What Material Is Used to Make Your Roof?

Asphalt shingles are a common roofing material for residential roofs. This type of roof is perfect for rooftop-mounted solar panels. Solar panel installation can also be done on metal, clay tile, and rubber roofs. Although it is not recommended to install solar panels on slate or wood roofs, it is possible. Consider a ground mount installation if you have a slate or wood roof.

What is the Age of Your Roof?

A home solar system should last at least 20 years. Therefore, you will need to ensure that your roof is able to withstand the elements for at least 20 more years. It’s better to replace or repair your roof before you install solar panels. This will save you the hassle of removing and reinstalling them later. It is possible to replace or repair your roof once you have solar.

How Big Is Your Roof?

The panels measure approximately 6.5 feet by 3.25 feet. Your roof’s ability to hold enough solar panels will determine how many you need to achieve your energy goals. You’ll be able to determine the number of panels you need after your consultation with ESD Solar. Our engineers can also create a customized layout design.
