4 FAQs About Solar Panels

Will I Need to Replace the Roof?

Solar panels usually require a solid surface to support their mounting systems, so roofs that show any sign of deterioration may need to be repaired before the panels can be installed.

What Happens if a Solar Panel Breaks?

There is usually a 25-year warranty included with a solar panel purchase. The installer will have a monitoring system in place to keep tabs on the conditions of the product and will provide a replacement within a few hours if anything happens to the panels.

How Can I Afford a Solar Panel Upgrade?
