Preparing Your Roof For Solar Panel Installation

Solar energy is becoming increasingly popular with new homeowners! Especially in Washington State


Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that does not create carbon emissions or other heat-trapping “greenhouse” gases that are harmful to the environment. Using solar energy avoids the environmental damage associated with mining or drilling for fossil fuels. Furthermore, solar energy uses little to no water, unlike power plants that generate electricity using steam turbines.

There are many benefits to installing solar panels on your home. They can lower your energy bills, increase your property value, and even generate income through Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs).

If you are looking to install solar panels on your home, there are a few things you should do to prepare your roof for installation.

  1. Inspect your roof or call a roofing professional to inspect your roof. Scan for damaged shingles and potential leaks.

  2. Examine the trees that overhang or cast a shadow on the house. Trim away any limbs that shade the roof area that the solar panels cover.

  3. Locate new positions for roof fittings like antennas, satellites, or vents that may be in the way of the proposed solar array.

  4. Have your roof cleared of debris and treated for organic growth like moss, lichen, and algae to ensure a proper solar panel installation.

If you are looking to prepare your home for a solar panel installation and need to have your roof cleaned and treated, call or submit a service request at Bayside Exterior Cleaning to schedule a free, no-obligation estimate.
