Solar panels can help protect your roof from damaging exposure and extend your roof’s life after installation. What’s more, in the peak energy-producing months of the spring and summer, the panels reduce the amount of sunshine bearing down on your home’s roof. This will help keep your home cooler in the summer because, instead of the home absorbing the heat, the panels turn the sun’s radiation into useable energy.
Solar panels can last for up to 25 years, so you will want to ensure your roof is ready to last just as long as your new solar system. If you do require roof repairs or roof replacement prior to solar installation, here’s how it works.
