Is Solar Right for Your Roof?

If you’re looking into roofing options, you may want to consider solar. Solar energy has several benefits including lowered energy costs for you and it makes your home more eco-friendly. It also helps that the cost of solar panels are in decline as the market grows and the technology behind solar improves. However, before you decide to choose solar, you need to know if solar is right for your roof.

Before you buy your new solar system, you’ll need to get a few things checked. Have a roof specialist or inspector check if your roof is properly ventilated. This is important because if there isn’t proper airflow where the solar panels are placed, the roof system will overheat which leads to deterioration over time.
