Best Roofing Options For Solar Panel Installation
Your roof has the potential to change your energy consumption and resources. Claw Roofing in Calgary understands that more people are thinking about their roofing options in the wake of our environmental uncertainty. Whether it is capturing rainwater from your roof and gutters to collect it for lawn and garden water, creating a roof-top garden or adding solar panels, the integrity of your roof needs to be in top shape to support secondary options. In order to obtain the best bang for your buck, your house ideally needs to face south, southwest or southeast to maximize solar panel power.
Roof Inspections Provide Vital Details
Before clients run out to purchase solar panels, solar shingles and anything that will be installed along their roof, it is necessary to address underlying support issues. This is the time to fix leaks, missing shingles, flat roofing repairs due to punctures, rotten support features, inadequate ventilation and more.

Metal Roofs, Tile Roofs & Solar Panel Installation
Metal roofs are one of the most durable in terms of roofing materials. Solar panels can be easily installed and mounted securely. Metal roofs last for decades with proper care and will likely outlive your new sun-loving panels. Be sure your solar installation is carefully calculated to prevent drilling unnecessary holes within your roof (an important note regardless of what your roof consists of). Tile roofs and metal corrugated roofs can utilize different tracking systems to seamlessly integrate solar panel installation for your residential or commercial building.
Solar Panel Shingles and Solar Slates
Conventional PV panels have been installed as solar gardens along the ground in certain instances, close to the building. Newer options in solar energy are arriving on the market that requires less square footage. It is important to calculate longevity, cost, warranty info and company history if you are considering adding solar cells to your residential or commercial space. Understanding how much energy your building currently consumes and projecting future usage can be a great place to start calculating your options.
We are excited to hear your ideas and what goals you hope your new roofing can help you accomplish. After all, your roof is a huge investment and we want to ensure it will take care of you and your needs now and for years to come.
