Should You Get a New Roof and Solar Panels at the Same Time?

March 22, 2023

When thinking about going green and investing in solar panels for your home, it may leave you wondering about the condition of your roof. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your roof worked on, it might be time to think about a roof replacement. Read on to find out whether you should get a new roof and solar panels at the same time.

Assess Your Roof’s Condition

The first step in determining whether you need a new roof to go along with your solar panels is to assess your roof’s current condition. When your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, you’ll find noticeable signs of wear and tear—clear indicators that a replacement is needed anyway. Also, it can be a costly project to remove solar panels and reinstall them after a roof replacement, so getting a replacement done before panel installation can be a big help.

Save Time and Money

When you combine a roof replacement and solar panel installation, you’re sure to save time and money. The less labor your workers need to do, the better for your wallet! If your roof isn’t quite in need of a full replacement when you install solar panels, consider having a crew repair your roof so you can avoid the need for a replacement after only a few years.

Consider Aesthetic Appeal

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a house that looks nice! Solar panels are already a good-looking addition to any home, but when you pair them with a new roof, your home will really stand out. Installing a roof and solar panels at the same time gives you the opportunity to coordinate your roofing materials with the look of your solar panels to create a cohesive appearance on top of your house.

Now that you know whether you should get a new roof and solar panels at the same time, make everything efficient by having both done. If you decide you want to include solar panels in your plans for your home’s future, NM Solar Group can help. We have the best solar panels in El Paso and several locations around New Mexico.
