Solar Panels and Roof Repairs
If you are looking to replace your roof and you have solar thermal panels on the roof, you will want to contact a certified solar thermal technician to remove and replace your panels to prevent any damage. Just like you would NOT want solar technicians to replace your roof, you do not want a roofer to remove and reinstall your solar panels. These are complicated systems that need to be properly removed and reinstalled to prevent panel damage, pipe damage and keep you from having expensive repairs in the future.
And if your roofer suggests you just remove your system, remember that a properly working system is a TEN to TWENTY THOUSAND dollar investment that can save you $250 to a $1000 a year in heating costs.
Contact us if you have any concerns about your new roof and your existing solar system. It could save you a lot of money to have all the facts before you make a decision.
