Expert Solar: Mastering the Art of Solar Panel Installation on Every Roof Type

At Expert Solar, we understand that the decision to install solar panels is significant, and knowing the specifics of how they’ll be installed on your roof is crucial. We’re here to provide detailed insights into our installation process for each roof type. Our goal is to ensure you feel confident and informed every step of the way.

1. Solar Panel Installation on Shingle Roofs

Shingle roofs are common in our service areas, and our approach to installing Enphase solar panels on them is meticulous and efficient.

Initial Inspection

We start with a thorough inspection of your shingle roof to assess its condition and identify any areas needing repair before installation.

Mounting System

We use a specialized mounting system designed for shingle roofs. This involves attaching a series of mounting brackets directly onto the roof rafters, ensuring a secure and stable base for the solar panels.


Each mounting point is sealed with high-grade waterproof flashing, preventing any potential water ingress and protecting your roof’s integrity.

Panel Placement

Solar panels are then carefully attached to the mounting brackets, ensuring they align perfectly with your roof’s contours for optimal energy absorption and aesthetic appeal.

2. Solar Panel Installation on Tile Roofs

Tile roofs require a different approach due to their unique material and structure.

Tile Assessment

Our team evaluates the condition of your tiles, ensuring they can support the solar panels. We identify tiles that need to be temporarily removed for the installation.

Bracket Installation

Specialized brackets are then fitted directly onto the roof rafters. This process may involve lifting or temporarily removing some tiles to securely attach the brackets.

Tile Replacement and Waterproofing

After the brackets are in place, the tiles are carefully replaced. We ensure that waterproof flashing is applied, safeguarding against any water damage.

Panel Attachment

Finally, the solar panels are mounted onto the brackets, with attention to detail to maintain the aesthetic and integrity of your tile roof.

3. Solar Panel Installation on Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are an excellent candidate for solar panel installations due to their durability and ease of attachment.

Inspection and Preparation

We begin with an inspection to ensure the metal roof is suitable for installation.

Mounting System

For metal roofs, we use a clamping system that attaches to the seams of the roof, eliminating the need for any drilling. This method is highly effective and maintains the roof’s integrity.

Sealing and Security

Each clamp is securely fastened and sealed to prevent any water leakage.

Panel Installation

Solar panels are then mounted onto these clamps, ensuring they are perfectly aligned and securely attached.

Ensuring Your Confidence and Comfort

Throughout each installation process, Expert Solar prioritizes your roof’s integrity and the efficiency of your solar panel system. We understand that each home is unique, and our tailored approach ensures that your solar installation is handled with the utmost care and professionalism.
