4 Things to Consider Before Installing Rooftop Solar Panels



4 Things to Consider Before Installing Rooftop Solar Panels

Solar power technology has seen incredible advancements in recent years and more and more people are investing their money in solar power systems. One of the most popular ways to install solar panels on your roof without worsening your impact on the environment.

Before installing solar panels on your roof, there are some important factors to consider:

  1. Is your roof in need of repairs?

If you know that your roof is in need of repairs, it is probably best to get these issues fixed before installing solar panels. That way, you won’t have to spend extra money on dismantling the installation after the fact.

  1. Consider warranties

Another factor to consider is your roof’s warranty and the warranty of your solar panels. In some cases, solar panels will last for 20 years. If your roof only has about 10-15, it will increase the cost of roof maintenance. If it is a much older roof, consider a roof replacement before installing any equipment to make sure your warranties are aligned.

  1. What’s the shape of your roof?

Before diving into the installation, make sure your roof offers enough space for the solar panels to fit so they function properly.

  1. How much weight can your roof handle?

Installing anything on your roof will increase the weight on the structure of your roof. To avoid putting too much weight on your roof, it is critical to have a licensed and professional roofing contractor evaluate your roof. The inspector will determine if additional support is needed to complete the installation.
