Solar panels can be installed on nearly all roof types. The main thing to consider is how strong your roof is.
Asphalt shingles are the most common type of shingles and also the most suitable for solar panel installations. They are durable, highly reliable and flexible.
Metal roofs with standing seams are also highly compatible with solar panels. Installation process requires less labor, which leads to reduced labor costs.
Tiled roofs are also suitable for solar panels, though the installation process is more expensive.
Gravel and Tar roofs tend to be flat, while the panels should be installed at a 30-degree angle to generate more electricity.
Solar systems are compatible with almost any kind of roof material or any type of roof structure. The panels are mounted on a rail system. Your installer will help you choose the most appropriate rail system for your home. Contact us for a free consultation on whether your roof is good for solar.
