If you are contemplating going solar, you also most likely have a few questions about whether or not solar is right for you and your home or if it is the most cost-effective source of energy to power your home.
Before anything, it’s important to figure out if solar panels make sense for your home. Below you will find a few important questions our energy specialists ask customers that are interested in buying or leasing a solar energy system.
What type of roof do you have?
You must have a strong and durable roof which can include asphalt or composite shingles, standing seam metal, or concrete tile. Nonetheless, if you have a roof with a wood shake, slate tile, or clay with mortal or stone/metal costed steels you are still able to go solar. However, we recommend you work with solar experts who have had experience installing solar panels on your type of roof.
