RESIDENTIAL SOLAR PANELS – The original in its industry, solar panels have been around for years. They have carried a lot of negativity with them due the high cost, unpleasing appeal and oftentimes difficult to install from a logistical standpoint. With the evolution of solar shingles, the good new is they have come down in price over the years and are becoming more affordable.
RESIDENTIAL SOLAR SHINGLES – First introduced commercially in 2005, solar shingles are quickly evolving and becoming the top choice for home roofing. Made of photovoltaic cells, they offer a sleek low-profile making them blend in with the roof and tax subsidized making them even more appealing to home owners. Color options are also now available!
RESIDENTIAL SOLAR ROOF TILES – Using the same concept as their photovoltaic shingle counterpart, solar roof tiles are now available for those looking to save energy while seamlessly blending in with their concrete or clay tile roof!
Aside from the aesthetic benefits of solar tiles and shingles, the installation process is not as invasive as installing solar panels. Solar panels require roofers to use rather large bolts leading to the eventual roof leak. While solar shingles and tiles interlock together for quicker installation.
