Warning about solar installations and your roof.

While a solar installation on your roof this days is the best to save energy and help the environment one important thing to consider is your roof. Before you have your solar system installed ask your contractor about the roof, what about the roof, what is going to happen if your roof leaks and you already spent a lot of money putting your solar system, what if those leaks are located under your solar system is your contractor going to come and un install the system so the roofing contractor can take care of your leaks or if not, are you ready to pay another solar contractor to uninstall the system so the roofing contractor can take care of your leaks?

Be careful and always ask this questions so you minimize the money you spent after your system is installed and working for you. The best thing to do is find a roofing contractor and fix the area where the solar system is going to be installed and ask for a warranty on any repairs, plus let the roofing contractor interact, talk with the solar contractor, one of the reasons is the solar cells always requires steel pipes and roof pipes to hold the new solar system attach to the roof, and no one than a roofing contractor that can take care of your roof.

Many roofs have solar systems, solar cells installed on the roof. The bad thing is that the solar contractor never told the home owner about the condition of the roof, and one thing is because they do not want the home owner to refuse their contract or sometimes they do not want the home owner to worried about the roof, but many times they just want to complete their work get their check and go. While many roofs are old and they need to be replace is not going to be a good idea to installed a new solar system on your roof and then later on have to un installed the system because no one told you that the roof needed to be replace before any solar installations took effect. Even if you have a new roof there always going to be roof penetrations, holes going to your roof to attach the new solar system, the best thing to do is call a roofing contractor before any installations take effect.
