Why Consider Installing Solar Panels?
Iowa's Top Solar Roof Installers
Solar panels can help homeowners cut down on their utility bills, and with the right investment, a homeowner can even gain complete independence from the commercial power grid altogether.
In recent years especially, solar energy technology, and the people who make and maintain it has only gotten better and better. Most panels now have a lifespan of 25-30 years and with the right team of solar installers and repairmen, you’re guaranteed to get a full life and a great return when you choose solar panels for your home.
Additionally, the installation of solar panels can actually go hand-in-hand with a pretty common home repair situation—replacing your roof.
Cost Of Repair & Installation
On average, the cost to replace a roof is $10,000 depending on the size of the roof, the cost of materials, and other factors.
Installing solar panels costs, on average, $19,000, and all combined, both these costs will come out to a little over $30,000 with other minor costs and adjustments factored in. That’s no small price to pay.
However: when done together, the cost lowers to about $25,000. On top of this, installing solar panels opens up several options for homeowners to see returns on their investment, which is an added bonus that simply replacing a roof doesn’t offer.
There are multiple options for paying for solar panels. Homeowners can choose to buy solar panel systems upfront, or they can lease them through a PPA agreement. Either way, timing solar panel installation with home roof replacement is a financially viable option many homeowners should consider if they’re looking to both keep up and even possibly improve their homes.
