Installing a new roof and solar system at the same time can be challenging especially when done separately. Both projects are considered to be major investments, doing them can be stressful indeed. We offer you the benefit of installing them together! We specialize both in roofing and solar installation services, so don’t worry - we have you covered!

One of the most common questions that we hear from customers who decide to go solar is whether they should reroof their house before solar installation. The first thing you need to consider is the age of your current roof. The lifetime of the roof is 25-30 years on average. If you have a new roof, then don’t worry about replacing it. But if your roof is due for replacement in 5-10 years, then get it done first. Thus, you won’t have to reinstall the panels after replacing your roof. This way you will save money in the long run. Besides, solar panels are able to protect your new roof and extend its life.

We are a roofing and solar contractor, so we offer you roof replacement and solar installation services as a combined package. Doing roof replacement and solar installation at the same time with DreamSolar offers certain advantages:

  • No need to manage the work of two companies on two large projects - you’ll have one dedicated project manager who will take care of all your needs.
  • No need to pay more for the same project as roofing and solar contractors charge separately - we can take care of it all without additional fees. Our prices are final with no surprises after the project is completed.
  • You will have a clear timeline doing solar panels and roof replacement as a single project with us.
  • DreamSolar is here to help you work out the best option for your home. Contact us at 855-953-7326 for a free consultation or fill out the contact form.

    Frequently asked questions
    What roof material is the best for installing solar?

    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.

    Do I need roof replacement before installing solar panels?

    It is highly advisable to complete all the maintenance your roof needs before installing solar panels in order to avoid costly repairs in the future.

    You should watch out for the most common roofing issues, such as missing shingles, leaks, and holes in your roof. Other times, the signs are not visible to you, such as pipe collar cracks or rotting plywood. Also, if your roof is already at the end of its life span indicates that maybe it’s time to get a replacement to prevent any problems resulting from a damaged roof.

    Is it possible to install solar panels without drilling the holes in the roof?

    It’s only possible for metal roofs with standing seams, as these seams make it unnecessary to penetrate the roof. With other roof types we need to drill holes to ensure proper fastening of solar panels.

    What if my roof is not good for solar?

    Here at DreamSolar we are offering roof replacement services. We can actually install a solar system and a new roof at the same time! An old or a damaged roof should not be an obstacle to transitioning to clean energy. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.
