Now's The Time To Go Solar!

You can save a lot of money by switching to solar, especially here in Tennessee. Electricity is expensive and likely to continue to become more costly over time, and going solar can lock in your energy costs for decades, saving you money. For most typical residential installations, switching to solar energy can save homeowners well over $100 per month! Plus, current federal tax credits of 26% on taxable income, property tax and sales tax exemptions for having residential renewable energy equipment, and local energy company incentives can really add up. Our systems are YOURS, not leased from local energy companies, and when paired with our incredible metal roofing options, you can feel secure knowing your home is protected and energy independent.

The Benefits Of Solar & A Metal Roof

Solar Panels Easily Attach To A Metal Roof - No Holes!

When solar panels are installed on traditional asphalt shingle roofs, the mounts have to be drilled into the underlying structure, creating potentially hundreds of vulnerable points for leaks and damage. Our metal roofing options use special bracket mounts, meaning no drilling or risk to your home!

Even More Energy Efficiency

Our metal roofs are Energy Star rated and are much more energy efficient than asphalt shingles, with the average homeowner saving anywhere from 15-30% on their energy bills for heating and cooling their home. When paired with solar, this means the electricity you generate goes further, and can even decrease the size of a solar system needed to power your home compared to having a typical asphalt shingle roof.

Environmental Sustainability

While every homeowner has their own reasons for going solar, environmental sustainability matters to many. Unlike asphalt shingles that create massive amounts of landfill waste each year, our metal roofs are nearly entirely recyclable, going hand in hand with decreasing environmental impact and going hand-in-hand with the sustainability that solar provides.

A Long Lasting Solution

Did you know that when you inevitably have to replace your asphalt roof every 8 to 15 years, you have to pay to have your entire solar system disassembled and removed, only to have to pay to have it reinstalled? This can add up to tens of thousands of dollars in additional hidden costs over time. Our metal roofs, however, will outlast even your new solar system, meaning no extra costs since your roof won’t have to be replaced!

Solar FAQ's

Do I need to replace my roof before installing solar?

Whether or not you should replace your roof before solar depends on many factors, including the age of your current roof. However, we strongly recommend using the opportunity to install a metal roof, as it will outlast your solar system, meaning no take-down and reinstall fees for your solar when replacing old shingles. Additionally, replacing your roof ensures there is no underlying damage or areas of concern that you might discover AFTER paying to have your solar installed.

Is now a good time to get a solar system for my home?

Now is a great time to install solar on your home due to numerous reasons. For one, the federal tax credit incentives are set to continue decreasing, going from 26% in 2022, to 22% in 2023, and disappearing in 2024 if it is not renewed by the government. Additionally, inflation and rising energy costs will continue to increase as time goes on, and gaining energy independence through solar will spare homeowners from the costs associated with it.

Should I include a battery backup system with my solar?

This depends on your goals for going solar. Do you want to only decrease your average energy bills or gain energy independence? Are you located in a city or out in the country? Battery systems allow for a home to be truly independent from the grid and the costs associated with using energy during the night or when there isn’t enough sunlight to fully cover your home’s energy consumption.

Why should I work with a roofing company for my solar installation?

Your solar system has to be mounted on your roof, so working with an established, expert roofing company like The Metal Roofers can guarantee there will be no structural issues underneath your new solar system. We also work with a LOCAL solar installer, keeping your costs dramatically lower compared to big national companies. We also take care of the headache of keeping everything organized so you don’t have to worry!

How long will my solar system last?

Modern solar systems are known for being durable and long lasting. The biggest factor that we see impacting the longevity of solar systems here in Tennessee is our weather. Under normal conditions, solar panels tend to last 25 years or more, though if tornadoes or fierce winds come through, that can cause damage which impacts their lifespan.
