Have you considered installing solar on your commercial property, but worried about the condition of your roof?
What if you could get your roof repaired (or replaced) and commercial roof solar panels. All under the same roof!
Commercial Roof Considerations
A leaky, damaged or over patched roof is a dangerous thing for home and business owners to ignore.
For businesses, the liability of a faulty roof is high. Untended leaky roofs cost business owners a host of problems that can cost a lot of money. Here are a few:
Health Issues. The growth of mold and mildew creates health issues for anyone using the building. This could be employees, customers, and/or tenants. Removing the harmful roof will reduce environment-related health issues and potential liability claims.
Slipping Hazards Inside. Water puddles create slipping hazards to anyone on the property. These can result in injuries and lawsuits, avoiding this can improve the owner's peace of mind.
Property Damage. Water leaks can wreak havoc on ceiling tiles, as well as ruin expensive equipment on the property. This could be computers, machinery, stock inventory, furniture and artwork. Take care and make the repair.
Higher Electricity Bills. HVAC systems tend to run up higher utility bills as the systems will run in overdrive to keep up with dampness. Improve energy management by taking into consideration commercial roof dependability.
Whether you need repairs or an entire new roof, it is an important issue to address. Roofing is not inexpensive, so it may be a project that keeps getting put off for a future time. Ensure that your property’s roof is secure to eliminate unnecessary liabilities.
Roof Repair + Solar Installation Bundling
There are many benefits to solar energy. You can read more about why major brands are among the top corporate solar power users. It is even more beneficial to bundle a new roof in tandem with a solar installation.
Besides lower electricity bills, here is what you get when you combine a roof and solar panel system:
Bundled Savings. A rooftop solar installation involves roof work in order for the panels to attach. By bundling both projects together, you can save a lot of labor and time by having the roof in good working order. Plus, with the right financing team, you can roll both loans into one at a lower interest rate.
Warranty Alignment. Solar panel installations and roofing projects come with long term warranties. When you install both as part of the same project, the warranties align together. This simplifies any potential warranty claims in the future and protects your investment.
Tax Benefits and Incentives. It has never been a better time to invest in solar. The current Federal Incentive Tax Credit (ITC) and accelerated depreciation offset 60-75% of the cost. More solar incentives vary by state and business type. Incentives may also cover energy efficient roof materials.
Full Project Management. When you work with a reputable Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) company, they can handle both projects for you from beginning to end. This lets you stay focused on running your own operations.
Bottom Line: Don’t let a deteriorating roof cost you more money later. And don’t let an old roof prevent you from investing in a solar system. You can hire an EPC company to handle the entire scope of the design, installation and roof replacement process. Take care of both together and enjoy bundled savings and peace of mind for 30+ years. Turn your roof from a liability to an income producing asset.
