The fact of the matter is, if you're going to put anything on a roof, you would do well to work with a company that knows roofing and has a proven record of quality workmanship in roofing installation. Why? Ask yourself these important questions:
1. Who do you want on your roof?
Many roof-related problems occur when contractors install or repair roof-mounted equipment. Roof foot traffic, roof access procedures and conduct do matter.
Who will you want on your roof to maintain and clean your solar system – a professional or a handyman? (See Solar Cleaning & Maintenance Service)
2. Who do you want making penetrations in your roof?
Commercial solar systems require hundreds of roof penetrations, therefore it’s paramount to have the knowledge and expertise of which materials and sealants are compatible for the “proper” flashing and sealing of various types of roof systems. Frankly speaking, most well-intentioned solar installers don’t have this expertise and experience which unfortunately will ultimately lead to premature roof failure.
3. Who warranties your roof?
Roof warranties are voided if solar systems are installed without a certified and authorized roofing company conducting the penetration seals. SBR. as a 50-year experienced roofing company and a solar company can maintain all warranties for both the roof and the solar system.
Conducting a complete roof evaluation and developing a well-thought-out Integrated Energy Solution prior to making a major capital investment for a solar system will save you and your company considerable money and frustration over the life expectancy of both your roof and solar system.Contact an SBR Solar/Roofing consultant today: 877-517-3737
