Solar panels are an environmentally friendly way to reduce your energy costs, and to start on your way to energy independence. We are proud to offer our customers GAF DecoTech® Solar Panels, which seamlessly integrate into a roof system.
Solar panels work by converting energy from the sun into usable electricity, which can then be used in your home. Typically, the electricity flows through your home, and will be supplemented by the grid, if needed. If your panels create more energy than you can use, most often it can be sent into the grid, which will give you credits on your electric bill.
How much electricity is produced is a direct result of the angle of your roof, the direction that it faces, the area that you live in, and any surrounding obstacles (trees, etc).
Traditionally, there were few options for residential solar panels. Most were visibly raised above the roof, and attached to your shingles via a rack, screws and nails. GAF DecoTech® Solar Panels are no-maintenance, fasten directly to the roof deck, and are low profile—seamlessly integrating into the roof without racks or exposed wires. They are surrounded by flashing, which keeps water out of your house, and prevents pests from making homes underneath the panels. Additionally, they come with a GAF 25-year warranty!
Our experts can evaluate your roof, and help you determine if solar panels are right for you.
