While POWERHOME Solar and Roofing’s bread and butter is its solar panel installation business, it does roof replacements too, sometimes as part of solar panel installations and other times as a standalone service. It all depends on customer needs.

For customers thinking about going solar, one common question that’s asked is how much it costs to have panels removed when a new roof is needed. After all, your roof may be fine for now, but it may need replacing 10 years down the road.

While the amount one would pay would depend on the size of your solar system, the average cost to remove and reinstall is around $3,000. While that is a sizable amount, the cost must be viewed through a longer-term lens. The average solar customer is expected to save tens of thousands of dollars over the life of his/her system. The short-term expense ends up being a sizable long-term gain.

But the following scenario makes good sense as well: If your shingles are nearing the end of their warranty or have damage that needs to be addressed, it may make sense to do both jobs at once, especially considering the warranties of both products fit similar timelines. The solar panels used by POWERHOME are American made and come with a 25-year warranty, with many panels expected to last well beyond that.

With federal and state tax credits available for eligible consumers, as well as the benefits of net metering, the cost of going solar continues to decrease, and its popularity has risen because of it. Consumers see the value of owning their power vs. renting the power from their utility company. Once you pay off your system, your solar power bill goes away, and the amount you pay for power is greatly reduced.
