The short answer is yes, it is possible for solar to cause your roof to leak. However, the solar industry has evolved over many years to develop best practices concerning waterproofing and sealing roof penetrations.
Your best protection against roof leaks when going solar is to choose a reputable contractor with a track record of happy customers going back years. Most solar contractors, including us at Goldin Solar, offer contractor’s warranties which will help ensure that we are liable for any leaks that occur due to poor workmanship. That means we will pay, not you, if your roof should start to leak due to poor workmanship. Learn more about Goldin Solar roof penetrations and how we prevent leaky roofs on the blog.
