Information on Roof Solar Panels
We recommend having your roof evaluated by a licensed roofing contractor before the installation of any solar panels.
Existing solar panels must be removed before replacing or repairing a roof in any area that has solar panels to access the roofing underneath.
We also recommend having your roof inspected by a licensed roofing contractor after any solar panels are installed or re-installed to make sure there was no damage to the roof during solar panel installation.
Key Skylight Benefits
Here are some key benefits of having skylights:
- Skylights are essential for brighter, natural light. They provide twice as much light as a vertical window of the same size and can even offset the glare coming in from vertical windows when placed strategically.
- Venting skylights help refresh any home. Skylights that open can help filter common indoor air toxins like carbon monoxide. With strategic planning, opening skylights and windows at the same time can create a stack effect and provide whole-home airing.
- Skylights offer privacy in certain situations, like in a master bath or bedroom. Since the skylight's positioned on the ceiling, it lets in daylight and fresh air without giving the neighbors a peek inside.
- Solar-powered skylights and accessories could possibly earn homeowners a solar federal tax credit. If you install one of our solar-powered venting skylights or any skylight with a solar-powered blind this year, you could become eligible for a federal tax credit when filing taxes.
