Installing Solar? Don’t Forget Your Roof!
Let’s get right to the numbers:
The average roof has a lifespan of 15 to 30 years, while a solar electric system’s service life is over 25 years. This means, unless you have a brand new roof, there will be a lot of overlap with your roof’s maintenance schedule when installing new solar panels.
Take the opportunity to start with a clean slate with a new roof and solar panel installation, all together. This will ensure your roof has a similar lifespan to your solar panels, reducing the occurrence of maintenance schedules that don’t line up.

Who to Call First?
Why not both! At Semper Solaris, we specialize in roofing as well as solar, allowing us to streamline both your roofing and solar home improvement project into one package.
Juggling two different contractors can be a huge hassle, especially when it comes to two projects that build on top of each other.
Furthermore, a lot can happen during the lifespan of your home’s roof and solar panels. Solar and roofing contractors can go out of business or stop servicing local areas, causing a nightmare situation for a new contractor to come in to tear out old solar panels in order to fix a roofing issue. View our roofing services for more information on choosing the right roofing material for your solar panel installation.
Trust us - having to tear out your solar panels to fix an old roof is never a pleasant experience!
