Do solar panels damage the roof?
We live in Arizona where the sun does nothing but shine. Thanks to Charles Fritts, inventor of the first solar cell, we can use that glorious sunlight to our advantage by lowering energy costs in our homes and businesses. The benefits of installing a solar system are many but people often wonder what damage can happen to their roof.
Hopefully we can put your mind at ease when we say, solar panels are not harmful to your roof and can actually be beneficial. of course, as long as a licensed and trained solar expert installs the solar system. Solar panels are kind to your roof in the way they offer it shade and protection from the outside elements. The shade helps to keep the roof cooler in our brutal Arizona summers. Solar panels protect your roof from those crazy monsoon storms too by providing that barrier to block debris from doing damage to the roof.
While getting a solar system does not mean damage to your roof, it is possible if you choose the wrong contractor to do the job. Do your research, pay for quality, and ensure you’re comfortable with your decision. Take the time to investigate 3 solar specialists nearby by checking out their website, verifying their licenses, reading reviews, getting warranty information, and scheduling estimate appointments with each contractor. Whoever has the best warranty, fair price, and finest customer service, is your new solar expert installer. And remember, CHEAPEST IS NOT THE BESTEST! CHOOSE QUALITY.

Or, if you just want to be cautious, we can also perform a roof inspection after the solar system has been installed.
