Deciding to upgrade your home with solar power can be an overwhelming endeavor. Many questions come to mind for property owners regarding return on investment, affordability, efficiency in your specific location, and overall effects on the home and roof. 

Today, we’re going to discuss the effects solar panels have on your roof. Will your roof be damaged by the installation process? A common misconception in the solar power industry is that solar panels will damage the shingles on your roof. With Green Power Energy, you can rest assured that your roof will be in great shape during the installation of the solar panels and long after.

Attentive, Methodical Installation

At Green Power Energy, we’re strategic about everything – whether it’s providing our customers with every piece of information they require to make an informed decision on solar power or our efforts to continuously innovate in a competitive industry. 

At the end of the day, there are two main factors that will make or break a solar installation – the quality of materials and quality of the installation itself. Although we would love to prove our high-quality installations by putting solar panels on your roof, our reviews speak loudly. With an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau and a 4.8-star rating on Google, you can be confident that your solar installation will be complete with great care. 

Our Materials and Process

Our high-quality installation and end result begins with your solar consultation. Every home and roof is different, just like the property owner. In order to best meet your needs, one of our solar consultants will closely work with you so that we know what you want our of your solar system and that we get all of the information needed about your home. 

First, we’ll ensure that your roof can hold the load of roof-mounted solar panels. Once we determine that your roof is capable of supporting the solar panels, we can begin planning for the racks that your panels will be mount to. 

At Green Power Energy, we care about both functionality and aesthetics. First, we’ll secure the rack that will hold the panels. The Unirac FlashLoc waterproof roof attachment secures the solar racking to the roof with a permanent pressure seal. FlashLoc boasts that their roof attachment means “no damage to roof shingles, faster installs, and triple-seal technology assures no leaks!”


Secured to the roof attachment is the Ironridge XR100 racking, which holds your panels in place. Ironridge has the highest load criteria in its class and is the ultimate residential mounting rail. This sleek rail features a low profile, clear & black anodized finish, and is one of the most aesthetically-appealing solar racking systems available.

Green Power Energy Difference

As with most products and services, the company and its people make the biggest difference. When installing solar panels, there is some risk. However, with Green Power Energy’s expertise, high-quality materials, and excellent customer reviews, your risk is essentially eliminated.
