Having solar power on your home is not new. However, with the popularity of solar power increasing, there are 3 tips you should know to prepare your roof for solar panels.
Tip 1 – Have Your Roof Inspected Before Installing a Solar System
Having a professional roof inspection is probably the most important tip to prepare your roof for solar panels. Once a solar system is installed, it can be very expensive to have it removed and reinstalled to fix any problems. A thorough roof inspection by one of the professionals at American Prestige Roofing can help you have peace of mind knowing that your roof is ready for a new solar power system.
Tip 2 – Have a Re-roof done prior to solar installation
Solar experts and roofing companies agree that it is a wise practice to have a re-roof done prior to installing a solar system. This will help ensure that you do not have any roof problems that could adversely affect your home. A re-roof will also protect your new solar system to ensure it is installed on a solid foundation.
Tip 3 – Only use reputable licensed and insured roof and solar installers
