Introduction To Solar Roofing – How Can You & Your Family Benefit?

Energy costs are only getting higher. People are also growing increasingly concerned about the impact of fossil fuels on the environment. For homeowners, renewable energy sources such as solar power are the answer. Rooftop solar panels are one of the most popular ways to harness the sun’s power. Solar roofing is another option many homeowners may not be aware of.

Solar roofing provides many advantages of solar panels with some additional benefits. Please keep reading for an overview of solar roofing technology, its benefits, and how Warren Roofing can help with installation and maintenance.

What is Solar Roofing?

Solar roofing is a system that incorporates solar cells or photovoltaic (PV) cells into the roof. The cells are typically made from a thin, flexible material designed to blend in with the surrounding roof tiles. When exposed to sunlight, the cells convert the energy from the sun into electricity, which can be used to power the home or fed back into the grid.

Benefits of Solar Roofing

There are several benefits to choosing solar roofing over traditional solar panels.

  • Visual Impact

    Solar roofing is more aesthetically pleasing. Because the cells are integrated into the roof itself, they are less visible than traditional solar panels on top of the roof. Solar roofing is perfect for homeowners who want to maintain the visual appeal of their homes.

  • Long Term Cost

    The upfront cost of solar roofing may be higher than traditional roofing, but homeowners can save money on their energy bills over time. Additionally, solar roofing may qualify for federal and state tax credits, which can further offset the installation cost.

  • Sustainability

    Solar roofing is a more sustainable choice for homeowners concerned about their environmental impact. It’s one more way to reduce your reliance on fossil fuels and lower your carbon footprint by generating electricity from the sun.

Matt began his roofing career at the age of 12 working for free for his uncle cleaning/organizing trucks tools. At 16 he began working on the roof for his uncle Jerry Adams of A&B Roofing/Jerry Adams Investments. He learned the fundamentals of various types of roofing including: hot tar, wood shake, shingle, tile as well as composition shingle. He then went to work for C&M Custom Roofing. Looking to expand his knowledge and gain further advancement in the industry he went on to run a crew at Nu Shake Roofing. After Nu Shake he decided to focus his attention on metal roofing and began working for Cal Pac Metal Roofing Co. After that he went on to Cal Neva which was another metal roofing company. Still looking to learn more and push the limits of what he had been taught he moved to the Sierra Nevada mountains where he ran crews for Carter Roofing, Robinson Roofing and Matteson Roofing before finally opening the doors of Warren Roofing in 2008.
