Can you install Solar Panels onto a Metal Roof?
Metal roofs are very compatible with solar panels, thanks to the variety of solar panel mounting systems available in today’s market. A mounting system is a device that allows you to attach solar panels to your roof, safely and securely. When it comes to installing solar panels onto a metal roof, our team use a mini rail system, that is drilled onto the ridges of the metal roof via self-tapping screws. This keeps the Solar panels very close to the roof, minimising any impact wind may have, and preventing any bird nesting. These clamps have a rubber backing in order to make the system waterproof, and sealant is also applied ensure the system water tight.
Installing solar panels on any type of roof, can potentially void your roof warranty. So be sure to check the manufacturer warranty prior to a solar panel installation.
