Solar And Your Roof - What You Need To Know

Saturday, March 11th, 2017 by Gina Farese


Great news! Including a new roof as part of a solar project offers the best return on investment possible. At Marcor, we're proud that the best solar design and installation companies choose us us to include a new roof in their solar projects. We work with our clients and theirs to ensure a seamless, one day roof installation in most cases, immediately prior to the installation of the solar panel system. With our focus on customer service, we make sure every detail is handled professionally and that every customer is a happy one.

Proper installation is key- Marcor uses Owens Corning's roofing with Sure Nail technology that allows for an easy, proper roof installation. When the solar brackets are installed and the roof shingle seals are broken, Sure Nail technology allows for the shingles to reseal to one another without having to manually seal them back together, preventing blow off and leaks.


We suggest a roof is not older than 10 years old before going solar because solar has a lifespan of 30 years or more and most roofs today are utilizing lifetime shingles. Ten years ago the shingles used had a life expectancy and warranty for only 25-30 years. Older shingles mayl deteriorate before the life of the solar is up, causing an expense to remove the system down the road in order to replace the roof. As a rule of thumb, again if properly installed, having solar on your roof can add to the life of the shingles as they are protected from the elements, decreasing the possibility for deterioration. For questions regarding your roof and your desire to go solar, ask your favorite solar contractor for more information or feel free to call us directly at 1-631-482-9560, fill out our Free Estimate form, or email [email protected]
