Step-by-Step Guide to Roof Repairs with Solar Panels

Assessment and Planning

Initial Evaluation: The first step is to assess the extent of the roof damage. This will determine the scope of the repair and whether the solar panels need to be removed.

Consult Solar Experts: Contact the company that installed your solar panels. They can provide guidance on how to move forward with your roof repairs.

Panel Removal and Storage

If roof repairs require solar panel removal, ensure that this is done by qualified professionals. Improper handling can damage the panels or void warranties.
Store the panels in a safe, secure place to prevent damage.

Roof Repair

Hire a reputable roofing contractor to conduct the repairs. It’s essential to choose a contractor with experience working on roofs with solar panel installations.
Inform the roofing contractor about the solar panel system to avoid any accidental damage.

Reinstallation of Solar Panels

Once the roof is repaired, have the solar panels reinstalled by the original installers or certified professionals.
