Many people are thinking about ‘going solar’ especially now that solar systems, including power storage, like the Generac Powercell have become the norm. There is no shortage of solar suppliers to help people on their solar journeys, but a key consideration for anyone thinking about going solar is to start with the roof. Putting a new solar system on a faulty roof is like putting a new paint job on a rusty car. It might be good to start with, but it will quickly lead to all kinds of problems.

Solar System + Roofing Expertise

This is why when choosing a solar provider, it is a good idea to select one with roofing expertise. Covenant Roofing and Solar began its business as a roofing company, and still provides the highest quality service for roofing repair and replacement. That is just the beginning however, as Covenant Solar and Roofing actively trains and develops its teams to be solar energy system experts. This training runs the gamut from making solar assessments to design to installation and ongoing service and maintenance. The beauty is, every decision is guided by what works best for creating a harmonious roofing power system.

Order the Combo… Solar System & New Roof

Often, homeowners that are excited about solar don’t consider that an aging roof will be a detriment, and more costly to replace in the future. There are opportunities to combine roof replacements and solar into a single job, and sometimes even to leverage available tax and energy company incentives to do both. As a top rated roofing and solar provider, Covenant Solar and Roofing can help guide you through the best solution for your home.

As more people add solar to their homes, the more they become interested in adding solar to their homes as well. In fact, a recent study showed that solar added a 4% average premium that buyers are willing to pay when buying a home with an existing solar power system. This can add to the investment math of a solar system payout.

Finally, 2022 is the final year of the maximum solar tax credit which will begin to phase out over the next few years. If you’re thinking about going solar, this is a great time to move forward, and Covenant Solar and Roofing would love to help!
