Solar roofing allows your Central Jersey home or business to produce renewable energy. They are relatively small solar panels that can be used to replace or complement your home's existing asphalt shingles. Solar panel grids are placed alongside or on top of your house, while solar shingles (which are newer and more expensive than solar panels, but look nicer) are installed within the roof itself. Solar roofing shingles are the same size and shape as ordinary shingles, and they can cover as much space as you prefer to suit your home's needs. As new shingles, they can easily be integrated into the current layout of your Central Jersey roof or they can be used to replace asphalt shingles that have become worn or damaged. At DP Roofing & Contracting, we install both solar roofing panels and solar shingles in Central Jersey.
Central Jersey solar roofing can be a great option for your residential or commercial roof. Here are some of the benefits of solar roofing for your Central Jersey home or business:
There are plenty of ways to save, and even make, money on your Central Jersey roof.
Even though solar roofing panels can increase the value of your home, they're not taxable in New Jersey, so you won't pay additional property taxes for the improvement.
There may also be Federal and New Jersey State solar tax credits and rebates.
Adding solar roofing to your house is more difficult than simply buying panels online, climbing on your roof and wiring everything together. It's important to hire a Central Jersey roofing contractor with skill and experience in solar roofing.
There are a number of permits that need to be applied for through a city or county and inspections that need to take place. And whether your Central Jersey building is suitable for solar roofing depends on many factors. Some roofs are poorly situated; a roof on which solar panels are to be placed should face south and not have any obstructions such as trees. And some buildings are not capable of handling the additional weight of solar panels, or do not have the capacity for the added electricity.
Between increasing technological advancements, improved financial incentives, and the cost of solar roofing coming down over the past decade, there has never been a better time to go solar.
