Benefits of installing solar panels
Our team can make quick work of residential and commercial solar power installation, always aiming for your complete satisfaction in everything we do. Take a look at just a few of the many advantages of having our team install solar panels at your property:
Save money immediately
First and foremost, 1 of the main advantages of solar panel installation is the instant savings it provides. From the moment solar panels are installed, you’ll start reducing your overall energy consumption and save big on your utility bills.
Increase your property value
As potential homeowners become more discerning and desire more green technology in properties, you can stand out from the competition by installing solar panels at your property. Imagine saving money on your utility bill for decades and then enjoying a higher asking price when it comes time to sell!
Protect the environment—reduce your footprint
Beyond the monetary advantages, solar energy presents a wealth of ecological benefits as well. Stop relying on fossil fuels to heat or cool your property—solar energy is a green, renewable energy source that can help you decrease your overall environmental footprint.
Solar panel installation process
Solar panels are traditionally installed on brackets that raise the solar panel off of your roof. The stands are fastened to the roof after the roof has been installed. There are a few different options for how they are waterproofed, depending whether they sit on the face of the roofing product only, or if they go under 1 course of shingles—like with vents or other flashings on sloped roofs.
Some alternatives to traditional solar panels are becoming more popular. Some manufacturers are providing direct-to-deck options that install more like skylights or shingles than traditional solar panels on stands. While these can reduce weight and labour costs, while also reducing your shingle material usage costs, all considerations of direction and pitch, structure, electrical capacity, and production efficiency needs to be made.
Pricing of solar panels
Pricing for solar panels can vary depending on the size and scope, but we are ready to provide free quotes to ease uncertainty. With our free quote process, we are able to help you determine the feasibility and effectiveness of solar panels on your roof, and if your structure is able to hold solar panels. Both of these considerations should be made so that engineering requirements and value are given to your solar project. If the structure of your roof is not sufficient to hold solar panels safely, making that adjustment can significantly increase the costs, which is why new homes and buildings are often the easiest to add solar options to.
Not every roof is capable of handling solar panels, but it is free to ask. Contact us to find out.
