There comes a time when your solar panels may need to be removed and reinstalled. It may be due to roof repairs, insurance purposes, system upgrades, or even a total re-roof. This process, known as Solar R&R (Removal & Reinstallation), shouldn’t be taken lightly. Every home and solar panel system poses unique challenges, like warranty complications or even roof leak issues. So who should you choose to do your Solar R&R project? Can you pick a third party contractor? Will Tesla still cover you if you choose a third-party? Here’s what you need to know before you make your decision.


​​Tesla Solar R&R VS. August Roofing & Solar R&R

Wait Times: If you’d rather not wait months long for a Tesla team member to show up at your door, a more available third-party contractor might be for you. Due to the familiarity of the company, Tesla can experience significant delays in scheduling your Solar R&R appointment. We’ve heard some customers wait even 3 months before any work is done! Going with a certified third-party contractor, like August Roofing & Solar, can get your project completed much faster, eliminating disruption or potential damage to your home.

Pricing: Some Tesla customers have reported that they only receive a quote for reinstallation AFTER the work is completed. If price transparency is important to you, we are proud to provide upfront pricing after a thorough roof inspection – No more surprises for your wallet.

Accountability: Choosing a separate roofing contractor and a separate solar installer can lead to finger-pointing if any issues arise during or after the project. With August Roofing & Solar, you have one point of contact that is fully insured for both roof repairs and solar R&R so only one company carries the responsibility for the entire job.

Warranty Protection: Tesla currently doesn’t cover damages done by third-party contractors, but if you do choose a third-party contractor, your Tesla warranty is not voided. Our extended warranty covers the entire roof repair plus the removal and reinstallation of your solar panels, so you can have peace of mind knowing that you are protected on all bases. As a bonus, we are also a Licensed Tesla Solar Repair company that can work on any solar roofs with Tesla models!
