Roof Repair before Solar Panel Installation

Before your solar panels are installed, you might need to consider the age and condition of the roof.

Age of the roof - if your roof is old and hasn’t been restored lately, our roofing specialist can analyse the condition of the roof and recommend suitable action.

Condition of the roof - Water leaks, broken tiles and any other issues will need to be fixed before the installation. This will ensure your roof is strong and stable to support panels. You will also save time and money on removing and installing panels again.

Solar panels can last for decades. Moreover, a solar panel installation can cause the issues to worsen. If your roof is looking worse for wear, get in contact with our roof specialists and we will be able to help.

Roof Repair with Solar Panels

It is possible to remove panels and restore the roof. Our solar electricians will shut the solar PV system and remove the panels from the roof. After the repair is done, we will install the solar panels again.

If your roof has serious damage, a full restoration is the best option. Talk to our specialists and we will be able to advise you on a cost-effective solution.

How much does a roof restoration cost?

A repair will cost less than a full restoration. Roof restoration involves high-pressure cleaning, broken tile replacement, repairing leaks, repointing and re-bedding of ridge caps and roof glazing. The total cost of roof restoration depends on various factors:

  • The age and condition of the roof
  • Condition of the tiles and paint
  • Size and height of the roof
  • Accessibility
  • Material used to repair the roof, resealing and paint

The Verdict

If you are planning to install solar panels and your roof needs repairs, it is recommended to go for roof restoration first.
