The journey towards sustainable living isn't without its hurdles, especially when it comes to integrating solar panels with the existing structure of your home. Solar R&R is a crucial project especially for those facing a roof leak caused by improper solar panel installation. We’ll cover everything you need to know about Solar R&R so that whether you’re a current solar homeowner or considering the switch, you’ll understand one of the biggest investments of your life.


What is Solar R&R?

Solar Removal and Reinstallation (Solar R&R) isn't what you planned, but it might be the solution you need when you least expect it. The intense process involves carefully removing your existing solar panels and reinstalling your panels.

Reasons for Solar Removal & Reinstallation

Poor Installation & Roof Leaks
The most prevalent cause is the need to repair a roof that has begun to leak due to substandard solar panel installation. Cutting corners during installation can leave gaps, damage flashing, and compromise your roof's integrity, creating a pathway for water to seep in. This is why it’s important to hire a company that knows both solar and roofing.


Aged Roof
Did your solar installer consider the age of your roof? Installing solar panels on a roof nearing its lifespan is a recipe for disaster. The added weight and stress can accelerate existing issues, leading to a costly project for removal, roof repair, and reinstallation. Imagine investing in your brand new home solar system only to find out 10 years later you’ll have to cough up thousands of dollars to fix your roof. This happens all too often as many solar-only companies ignore this key factor.


The Unexpected
Sometimes, unforeseen circumstances like storm damage or structural issues will require roof repairs. In rare cases, you may want your solar panels moved to another area of your roof, or even an entirely different home.
