Solar panels are becoming more and more common every day and a typical concern people have is how it will effect the roof. Questions like… Can my particular type of roof support the weight of solar panels? Should I replace my roof before I have a solar system installed? Is there any potential damage that could happen to the roof from the panels like leak problems from the mounts etc.
The good news is that as long as whoever installs your solar panels is good at what they do and follow best practices, chances are you shouldn’t have any problem. Most roofs can support a solar panel system just fine and the specific type of roof you have will determine the way the solar panel will be mounted.
