Why Get Solar?

  1. Become Your Own Power Company:  Energy bills are out of control now and power companies don’t seem to be doing anything about it.  In fact, they just keep lobbying for high rates.  The crazy thing is that you can’t even go shopping for a different power company so you are stuck with whoever services your area. However, there is a solution.  With solar panels, you can break up with your power company. You can become your own power company which will save you hundreds of dollars a month.
  2. Tax Benefits:  Over the years the Federal government and Florida have been giving tax incentives for people to move to solar.  You can add a solar system to your home, raising its value, without raising your property taxes thanks to Solar System Property Tax Exemption
  3. Greater Home Value:  Adding solar to your home increases it’s value by thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. In the state of Florida, none of that value is taxed.

Do Solar Panels Ruin Your Roof?

The answer is no, as long as you have them installed by a solar company with roofing experience. In fact, in this case, solar panels can actually extend the life of your roof. This is because solar panels add an extra layer of protection to your roof from the elements such as rain, wind, hail and sun. They soak up all that sunshine and convert it into clean energy you can use to power your home instead!

Heart of Florida Roofing will ensure that your roof and your solar panels are properly installed and work together. You could save a lot of money on your new roof by getting solar panels at the same time — just ask our experts how you can save on your roof replacement and solar combination.

Why Choose a Roofing Company For Your Solar?

Installing solar panels can actually extend the life of your roof, protecting your roof from harsh sunlight. A roof that is damaged or near the end of its lifetime is not ideal for solar panels, but if you are getting a new roof or roof replacement, it could be the perfect time to switch to solar.

Professional Roofing Background And Experience

Since Heart of Florida Roofing is an in-house roofing company, with over 30 years of experience working on residential and commercial roofs, we are able to address any concerns regarding roof damage. This is uncommon among solar companies out there. Hear of Florida Roofing installs quality, affordable roofing and works to ensure that every step of installation protects the roof on which the solar panels are placed.

Furthermore, Heart of Florida Roofing protects your warranty against any unnecessary damage. As both a roofing contractor and solar contractor, the company uses only trusted and high-performing shingle brands such as Owens Corning™️. From the shingles to the flashing, using these quality products on your roof will also ensure that your home has tasteful aesthetics that stand out from other homes in your neighborhood.

Here’s why roofing experience is important for solar installation:

Knowledge of the best roofing installation practices for solar panels.
Ability to spot red flags during the site inspection of a new or existing roof.
Experience to answer any questions regarding the impact of solar panels on roofs.
Installation of your rooftop solar panel system using techniques to prevent leaks.
Ability to quickly address any issues that may come up with the roof during installation of the solar panels.
Ensure that your roof warranty remains secure.

A roofing company offering solar can address all of the issues above whereas a solar company without roofing experience could mean more risk of damage to your roof.

Roofing Experience Results In Better Solar Panel Installations

When it comes to choosing your solar company, you want to pick one that has the experience and knowledge that comes from roofing. Getting a new roof and solar panels at the same time means you can save on your new roof and experience protection from serious storms and the watts produced by the photovoltaics in your solar panels. 

Installing Solar Panels on an Asphalt Shingle Roof

Shingle roofs are very common on residences, and also common with conventional solar panels. If the roof is fairly new (just a few years old), or you replace your roof with the intention of installing solar panels, your roof should last you throughout the lifetime of your new solar panels. 

Asphalt shingles or a tile roof can be perfectly paired with solar panels. Roof replacement typically takes 1-3 days, though it can vary depending on the home’s size. A well-installed and maintained shingle roof lasts 20-25 years. Along with solar shingles are a great option for capitalizing on solid quality and energy savings.

Get Solar Panels Installed on a Metal Roof

As with shingles, metal roofing takes only a few days to install or replace. Metal roofs are excellent for solar panels and solar products. They are highly durable, low-profile, and will likely last longer than the solar panels themselves — especially if the metal roof is newly installed.

Better yet, because metal roofs have an average 50 year lifespan your roof installation will last decades. In fact, some metal roofs have lasted over 100 years, making them an ideal long-term choice. And since a metal roof helps your home be more energy efficient by reflecting heat and cold, it’s a fantastic match!

Install Solar Panels on a Flat Roof

When performed by a professional roofing company, installing solar panels on a flat roof should cause no more issues than any other installation of a solar roof system. Panel removal shouldn’t be an issue either. A flat roof lifespan is typically 20-30 years, which makes it an even better roof style for rooftop solar.

While more typical on commercial buildings, flat roofs can be perfect for solar energy. Your solar installers can point the solar panels in any direction they need to for maximum sunlight exposure. The solar cells in the panels love the abundant sunshine.
