Do I need a new roof before going solar? - Goldin Solar, LLC

If your roof is in good condition without leaks, it is generally suitable for a solar installation. However, if you plan on replacing your roof in the next few years, we suggest doing so before or at the same time as the solar installation. It is your responsibility to determine whether or not your roof is in suitable condition prior to installation. We also advise you to ensure that you are aware of potential changes to your roof’s warranty as a result of installing solar on your roof. If you do decide to replace your roof, Goldin Solar holds a roofing license and can include a re-roof in the same contract as a solar installation.
