Solar Panels Cause My Roof To Leak

The unfortunate reality of solar installations is that the installer must put multiple penetrations into your roof. This practice is a double-edged sword in the way that these attachment points are necessary for structural integrity, but if not done correctly, they could lead to a much more devastating problem.

Why Would I Have Roof Leaks From New Solar Panels?

Can solar panels cause roof leaks? Are you having new panels installed on your roof? You will need a professional and qualified solar installer to establish your roof and the ability to properly fit the panel. This is the best approach to preventing a roof leak or roof damage.

Your average roofer does not have the knowledge of properly trained solar installers. We ensure that we work with our best solar technicians and have partnered with the best roofing companies in the business that are cross-trained on exactly what is needed.

You need to be careful when hiring the average roofing company that specializes in residential roofs without solar panels or the cheap “one-size-fits-all” contractors. You should never hire Solar Medix to fix your plumbing or your car. 

And you should also never hire someone without the knowledge and expertise to fix your roof leak from solar.

Solar Panel Roof Leak Investigations From The Best

We at Solar Medix take pride in our ability to cross-train and integrate these two professions to create the most inept service professional and offer the most comprehensive solution to your roof leak issue.

Coming in a stunning third for roof leak issues is a poor install in its entirety. With the overwhelming amount of installation companies popping up, it is hard to ignore the potential for substandard installations.

As simple as an installation is (well, at least we think so!), the problem lies in the inability of the installation company to properly train their installers on good install practices.

Solar Medix’s own President, Anthony D’Angelo, has spent his previous life coaching, training, and mentoring installers on proper install practice.

Anthony. when working with a Fortune 500 company, created a training program that was the first of its time.

He has trained over 1,000 installers on proper installation methods for more than five different racking systems.

The Solar Medix team has taken that training program and adjusted it to identify a proper solar installation.

Your Solar Medix technician will spare no expense when reviewing your system. We will be sure to overview your system in its entirety and report right back to you, the homeowner, with a full understanding of what went wrong.

Rest assured, Solar Medix is here to stop that nagging drip in your ceiling!
