Will solar energy work with my roof? Chances are yes! Solar panels can be attached to most roof types, flat or sloping. Our operations team is one of the few experienced in working with all roof types – we even do ground mounts and carports.  Here’s a list of the roof types we will install solar on and how the panels are attached.

Types of Roofs

Metal 

We work with both standing seam and ribbed metal roofs. With the standing seam metal roof, there is no penetration to the actual roof. The system’s racking connects directly to the seam.

Shingles

Panels are connected to a shingle roof using a mounted system that is anchored by a bolt into the building’s rafters. The mount is then covered by a piece of flashing that is inserted under the previous shingle. The flashing is engineered to protect the bolt and your roof from the outside environment, maintaining a watertight seal around the bolt.

Flat Roof

We use a rail-less mounting system on flat roofs called a Ballast Mount. Each corner of the solar panel is connected to a tray that is held in place by a concrete block. There is no roof penetration with a Ballast Mount. As a result, Ballast Mounts can be installed without impacting the existing roof warranty.

Ground Mounts and Carports

In addition to roof mounts, we also install ground-mounted solar systems and carports. These types of systems can be placed wherever the conditions are best for solar, making them a great alternative for someone who doesn’t have enough usable roof space or just prefer to not have panels mounted to the roof.
