Your Roof: Solar Power?

March 22, 2024 | Filed under: Buying a New Roof,Energy,Environmentally Friendly,Newsletter Articles


In today’s world, energy efficiency is more important than ever. With rising energy costs and bills, many homeowners are looking for ways to cut down their usage and save themselves some money in the process. Because your home’s roof takes up much of the exterior surface area, the standard asphalt shingle roof traps heat and forces your air conditioning system to work harder.

Compare this to our modern metal roofing, which uses a heat-reflective coating baked into the paint system to bounce the sun’s rays off the roof and reduce the strain on your AC. Our customers have seen savings of 20% on energy bills, even over years of service.

Beyond heat-reflective metal roofing, solar panels can mitigate energy costs. Your roof makes up nearly half of the outside of your house, leaving a space perfect for gathering sun. Solar panels are a wise investment because they allow you to generate your own power and sometimes even sell extra power back to the grid. We want to bring that to our customers, so we’ve partnered with CertainTeed to offer their Solstice® solar panels.

Solstice® panels are a low-profile PV solar panel that integrates into our metal shingles to form a unified roofing and solar power solution. The sleek design of Solstice® blends in much better than traditional PV panels, staying low to the roof.

CertainTeed backs Solstice® with their Limited Warranty, which provides up to 25 years of coverage on the system and installation.

With our long-lasting metal roofing, you won’t have to replace your roof before your solar panels. This saves you the headache of hiring a solar company to remove the panels, replace the roof, and then pay to have the panels re-installed. Solar panels and our metal roofing make a great team. 

You can read more about Solstice® here on CertainTeed’s website, which has further information on the warranty and photos of finished projects. 

We’re excited to offer an excellent solar panel and metal shingles for an energy-efficient combination well-suited to your home. So, if making your own power, saving on energy bills, and choosing a durable roof sound right for you, our team members are here to help, backed with years of experience in helping people find the perfect roofing for their homes.
