If you’re considering getting a new roof, we highly recommend you choose premium metal roofs and install solar panels. Why? They make the perfect pair.
Here are the reasons why:
Premium metal roofs can last a lifetime. They can last up to 100 years, and you won’t need to maintain and repair them because they’re incredibly durable and resistant to harsh elements and weather conditions. Plus, they enhance the beauty of your home.
Solar panels can help you save thousands on your electricity bills. And if you install a hybrid solar system, you will be energy independent.
Additionally, having metal roofs and solar panels can increase the selling value of your house.
Kinds of Solar Panels that Go Perfectly with Metal Roofs
You have two solar panel options for your metal roof:
This option is traditional: it’s when we install photovoltaic (PV) solar modules on top of your long-lasting, durable, and weather-proof metal roof.
On the other hand, integrated solar panels are created by combining solar singles with metal shingles. This option is cheaper because you won’t need a metal roof to install the solar panels.
The Benefits of Having a Metal Roof and Solar Panels
Metals roofs are expensive, but they don’t need maintenance. Once installed, you don’t need to think about them your whole life.
Also, metal roofs prevent heat from transferring into the attic and living space, so your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as much to keep your home cool and comfortable.
Additionally, solar panels can help you save on electricity, especially if you install a solar battery to save all the excess power your solar panels have generated.
Safety and peace of mind
Metal roofs are resistant to brutal weather conditions, pests, and fires. They’re also resistant to mildew, mold, and fungus. They are immune to anything that can compromise their strength and structure as long as it’s properly installed, sealed, and fastened.
Metal roofs are lightweight, so they’re easy to transport and install and won’t add much weight to your house.
Additionally, most solar panels have aluminum frames and mounting brackets, which are also lightweight.
