The convenience of roof mounting has made it the most popular form of solar installation today. With roof-mount solar panels, you not only take advantage of your roof’s natural exposure to sunlight, but you also enjoy the benefits of solar power without taking up space on your property.
Roof-mount solar panels are a good choice in any residential or commercial property that naturally faces the sun. They are especially beneficial on larger buildings such as commercial facilities, university and high school campuses, and more — any building with a large roof that is easy to access has the potential for a solar installation. Solar panels can be mounted on asphalt shingles, sheet metal, tile and practically any other type of substrate, on both flat and sloped roofs.

KEY BENEFITS OF ROOF-MOUNT SOLAR
The biggest benefit to roof-mount solar panels is how easily they integrate with your home or business. Unlike other types of installation, they make use of space that’s already there and can be installed with a minimal amount of disruption to your property. As a result, the installation process is fast and easy. Another benefit to roof-mount solar panels is that they provide additional protection for your building — by limiting exposure to the elements, they reduce the amount of wear and tear your roof incurs, which can extend its life.
DRAWBACKS TO ROOFTOP SOLAR
Though they have many benefits, roof-mounted solar panels aren’t the right choice for every property. With roof mounting, you are limited in the number of panels you can install, which means you may not generate enough power through solar alone. As well, if your building doesn’t have good exposure to the sun, a ground-mounted or hybrid system may be more effective.
