AltEnergyMag has a great article and interview with a roofing professional about the convergence between roofing professionals and solar panel installations. Read more about it below.

Recently we have seen more large roofing companies become more involved in solar.  Why do you think this is?

First, there’s the fundamental recognition that residential solar will be a significant part of the future of energy.  Building from there, there’s a natural alignment and synergy between solar and roofing throughout the value chain which is organically pulling the two industries together. As the solar industry matures, products are becoming easier to install and software has simplified the system design and sales process, both of which have enabled more roofing contractors to participate in the solar market. At the same time, we’re seeing solar installers, particularly in more developed solar markets, adopting roofing.  I think there’s also the belief that as solar costs come down, there’s more opportunity for a solar roofing product to be successful. Add all this up and it makes sense for roofing companies to get involved in solar in some way, shape or form.

Does it make sense for a new roof and solar to be installed at the same time by the same contractor?

It makes perfect sense. Since solar products are typically warranted for 25 years, the best time to install solar is when, or as soon after as possible, a new roof is installed. From the customer’s perspective, finding one contractor who can install both the roof and solar simplifies their purchasing experience. Note that I’m defining “purchasing experience” to extend from installation through the service lifetime of the roofing and solar systems because if there are any issues down the road, there’s no finger-pointing between two contractors. Better yet, if both the roofing and solar systems are supplied and warranted by a single manufacturer and installed by a single contractor, there’s even more value to the customer.  And from an installer’s perspective, being able to sell two products instead of one not only improves their revenue generation, but results in cost efficiencies which they can use to improve their profitability and also pass along to the customer. In this scenario, everyone wins. (Continued)
