Solar systems have no moving parts, require only minimal maintenance, and are built to last. There are solar systems out there that are over three decades old — and still going strong. If you’re due for a roof replacement, it is best to do so before (or during) installing solar panels, so that the solar panels don’t need to be disturbed when the roof is replaced. If a roof replacement is still several years off, we suggest going solar now. When your roof requires replacing, it is easy to find an installer to uninstall and reinstall the system.
