Do I need a new roof before the installation of solar panels?

Most installations do not require a new roof prior to PV installation; however, the answer depends on the age and condition of the roof.  We recommend using the 5-year rule, ie, consider replacing the roof prior to solar installation if you anticipate doing so within the next 5 years, otherwise, proceed with the solar system installation.  Solar energy systems will last for many years and will greatly reduce the wear on your roof by blocking ultraviolet rays.  Systems may be removed and re-installed should you need to replace your roof in the future.

Renergy Solar grew out of an established and successful local roofing company (  If necessary, we will have a roofing professional conduct a free evaluation of your roof prior to installation.
