Roof Talks: The One Big Mistake Building Owners Make When Going Solar
Solar energy is growing in popularity as it becomes cheaper and more efficient. But what many homeowners and businesses don’t know is that a solar system installed on a roof, new or old, can void your roof warranty and potentially hinder the roof’s overall safety.
On this episode of Roof Talks, we welcomed Dave Schupmann, SVP of sales and marketing at Fortis Warrant, to walk us through how experts at Fortis Warranty approach smooth solar roof installation.
Though a roof could be brand new, healthy, and strong, it may not be designed for solar panels. Sadly, many business owners don’t know this and install solar panels only to find they have voided their new roof warranty.
This is where Fortis comes in. Not only for new roofs, Schupmann and his team at Fortis have seen it all: “…a roof that’s almost out of warranty, or a roof that has no warranty on it, or even a roof that’s halfway through its warranty,” he said.
No matter where the roof is in its lifecycle, Fortis gets it to the place where the roof matches the longevity of the solar panels that live on it. How? The Fortis Roof Risk Assessment (FRRA). This comprehensive roof and building evaluation catch potential threats to the health of a roof, keeping solar stability in mind.
Whether the roof needs reconditioning or replacement, the FRRA analyzes the best next steps for a roof to prepare for solar panels. Fortis works closely with solar companies as well, “working with them hand in hand making sure the roof can receive what their plan is,” Schupmann said.
Spending the money to invest in this renewable energy is a commitment and one that deserves to be done right; give this podcast a listen for the professional expertise to guide there.
