Those beautiful sunny days are spectacular for you, and even the rainy seasons can be a nice time to curl up inside the house. But for your roof, those types of days can be rough. That’s probably why you’re looking for a roofing company that can help you replace the roof you currently have with a new one, and potentially one that’s going to help you decrease some of your bills. That’s where solar roofing comes into the mix. And it can be a perfect thing for your home.
Why Solar Roofing?
In Oahu there are plenty of sunny days and that beautiful sunny weather deserves to be used to its maximum potential, right? Sure, you probably spend a lot of those days outdoors, but you can absolutely capitalize on it a little more, by harnessing that sunlight into energy that you can use throughout your house. With a solar roofing company you’re going to have the ability to make the most of every sunny day and still have power stored for those days when the sun doesn’t shine.
The great thing about solar roofing is that you’re going to cut some of your energy bills. When you hook up your house to solar power it means that the sun is actually powering a lot of the electrical appliances and needs you have in your home. That means you pay for the installation of the solar panels and then you don’t have to worry about paying so much for energy. Plus, your home doesn’t use as much energy as it harnesses from the sun in any given day. That means more energy is stored for times when there isn’t direct sunlight.
On top of that, there’s no need to worry about running out of power because you can still stay connected to electricity in case there’s a problem. That means you’re always going to have a backup and you’re always going to have the power that you need. What could be better than that? All you need to do is find the right company to help you with the installation process and get your household set up for an entirely new situation. After all, you want to make the most out of everything around you, right? And this is nature helping you keep your home going.
Finding the Right Roofing Company
When you’re sure you want solar roofing for your home it’s time to hire the right roofing company to help you make this a reality. So, how do you make sure that you’re hiring the right team? You’re going to need to ask some important questions and definitely make sure that you’re paying attention to all of the answers.
Are you licensed and insured?
You not only want to know that they are but you want to see the proof of it. If something happens to someone on your property and the roofing company doesn’t have license and insurance you could be the one on the hook for it. That’s definitely not something that you want to deal with.
What type of roofs do you install?
Just because you’re getting solar roofing doesn’t mean that your entire roof will be solar panels. You will want to know what the rest of the roof is going to look like (or if they are going to install full solar panels). Make sure you ask questions about how the whole system is going to work and find out even what it’s going to look like on your home. You want to be able to enjoy your space, after all.
How long will installation take?
How long is it going to take for them to put the solar panels up and any other roofing sections that are going to be installed? How long will it take for everything to come in so they can even get started? How many people are working on the crew as that will impact just how long things take to complete.
How much could I save per month with solar panels?
Just what kind of savings and benefits are you actually looking at? This will vary based on your specific area because of the sun and the energy costs you’re currently paying. A good roofing company should be able to give you general estimates on how much money you can save based on the average number of sunny days in your area and the number of panels you’re installing on your home.
How much will solar panels cost?
The unfortunate thing is that solar panels can be expensive upfront. But you’re going to recoup the money in savings along the way. So, you want to make sure that you’re looking into the upfront costs and weighing out how long it will take to start seeing the benefits.
What other types of roofs do you offer?
If you change your mind about solar panels you want to know the other options that are available to you to get a high quality roof. You want to make sure that you are choosing something that will stand up to the weather in your area and last for a long time. So, find out about different styles of roofs and why one might be better for you than another. A quality roofing company will be able to discuss all of the benefits and drawbacks associated with each of their products.
