Did you know? Installing solar on an older roof is often not a smart investment because removing solar panels to make repairs is a costly and time-consuming project.
But don’t worry. You don’t have to tackle two separate home improvement projects. With a solar-integrated roof, you’ll get a new roof and a solar system in one seamless process from your local roofer and GAF Energy, sister company to GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America
That means you won’t have to worry about coordinating multiple contractors, timelines, permitting processes and warranties. You’ll get a new roof with solar as one project, with the option of being covered under one industry-leading roof warranty.
Benefits of a New Roof With Solar
In addition to being a 2-in-1 home improvement project, installing solar simultaneously with a new roof has several long-term benefits: Both projects are known to increase your home value; your new solar system can potentially reduce your electricity bill, offsetting the cost of the roof; and you’re helping the environment.
A roof-integrated solar system is also better for your roof because it eliminates the need for a conventional solar racking system that could compromise the roof’s integrity, potentially causing leaks and other problems.
The GAF Energy solar system is direct-to-deck, meaning it’s part of your roof, similar to a skylight. There are no lag bolt puncture points, and our roof-integrated solar panels have superior water-shedding qualities.
So, if you find out you need a new roof, why not turn it into a positive for your home by transforming this static space into your own electricity source, saving you money for years to come?
At GAF Energy we understand that peace of mind comes from having a roof that protects. Working with us means working with the best in the business for an elegant solar roof.
