Sep 10 , 2021

Solar panels can help your home become more energy efficient. so do you want to install solar panels on your roof? Installing solar on a tile roof requires a different approach, but it is possible. On a traditional asphalt roof, solar installation would simply require drilling into the roof and attaching your mounting brackets to the roof studs. The area around the Roof PV mounting brackets is then sealed and a flashing is installed to prevent water infiltration from the roof penetrations.

When a solar array is installed on your roof, it will be installed on one of the available solar racking systems. Depending on your roof type, how the mounts are installed will vary. Sometimes they will be put right into the roofing, other times they will be slipped under the roofing, and other times the roofing will have to be removed or replaced to install the mounts.

Once the mounts are installed, they will protrude out from the surface of the roof. Then, your installer will install the roof racking system for the panels to be mounted on. Once the racking system is installed, the panels will be secured to the racking system. Panels will have to be off the surface of the roof a bit so they don’t overheat and can produce at a top level. There are options for lower racking systems or a skirt for a more aesthetically pleasing array.

But more people choose low cost solar mounts and racking systems. There is always the option for a ground mounted system as well. In order to pull off a ground mounted system, you’d have to have a decent amount of area on your property that gets adequate sunlight. However, ground mounted systems, usually cost more than roof mounted systems.
