Photovoltaic Solar Panels on Roofs provide rooftop harvesting of power through energy production on the rooftop. They are complex roof coverings that can cause roof damage during installation. The Chicagoland Roofing Council Professional Roofing Contractor is best qualified to install these complicated assemblies because they understand how to treat the critical element - the roof under the panels.

With the movement of environment friendly, green and clean energy, solar energy has been high on the list of alternative energy options. While energy-saving roofs are the trend today, energy-producing roofs are inevitably where the roofing industry will be in the future.

Photovoltaic Solar Panels produce energy using sunlight to power things in buildings while Solar Thermal Panels heat water for use in the heating system. Wind energy is produced at roof edges when turbines are mounted close to the rooftop at wall edges. The key to all these assemblies is that there needs to be a water tight roof first.

Photovoltaic solar panel and solar thermal assemblies are installed over the roof burying it below. The panels are very hard to move. To get to a leak to fix it, the panels need to be removed. That's expensive. That's why a skilled Chicagoland Roofing Council Roofing Technician is needed to install the roof and the solar panels. Roofing Technicians have the training to install all these overburdens and not damage the roof under it.
