Timberline Solar is the first true solar roof on the market. It incorporates the world’s first nailable solar shingle, which roofers can install as easily as regular roofing shingles, with only a nail gun. The benefit of this roof-integrated solar system is its seamless, waterproof installation that mimics traditional shingle installation.
With most residential solar systems on the market using rack mounted panels or tiles, these setups require specialized installation skills and they can puncture your existing roof with lag bolts. This could disrupt the waterproofing to your roof, possibly degrading your roof quicker. Plus, the smaller form factor of the Timberline Solar Energy Shingle as compared to a solar panel allows for installation on more complex roof shapes such as dormers or hipped roofs.
