About Solar Roofing

Solar roofing is growing ever more popular with its increasingly recognized economic benefits. It is slowly becoming the preferred alternative to regular electricity and heating. Financially, solar roofing dramatically reduces both heating and electricity bills by providing enough output to power the entire house or building, and integrating advanced plumbing systems. The heating and cooling costs can be cut by up to 30%, and electricity bills reduced to about $5 for average sized homes, simply by installing solar roofing systems. Combined with some durable roofing materials such as Asphalt, PVC, and metal, solar roofing can also provide non penetrable, lasting, and strong roofing sheathing for both residential and industrial applications.

Many of today’s solar roofing systems are interlocking, which allow for simple installation and no mechanical fastening.
