Incorrectly installed solar panels can be dangerous for the safety of your roof and surrounding structures. As a fully-licensed roofing contractor, Garrison Roofing takes care to ensure that your roof is adequately prepared before solar panels can be installed. During our on-site roof inspection, we will document needed repairs or structural reinforcements that should be executed prior to solar installation. We will note the condition of your roofing, identify leaks, find structural issues, and check for signs of rodent damage, insects, mold, or infestations before confirming that your property is a good candidate for solar. Our comprehensive roof inspections include a check on the sealing, fastenings, and security of other roof components like seams, gutters, and chimneys. You’ll receive a detailed overview of any required or optional repairs, along with an understanding of how this will impact your timeline and budget.

Whether you are installing solar panels on a single-family home or outfitting an entire warehouse with green energy, our team will recommend the right technology for your energy use and budget.

To calculate the number of solar panels required to support efficiency we will document your major appliances like air conditioners, generators, and refrigerating systems. After collecting all of these details our roof and solar contractors will draft an installation blueprint for your custom installation. Each solar roof installation is designed to:
