Solar Roofing in Florida

Residential and Commercial Solar Roofing

Solar roofing in Florida is an increasingly popular option. And it’s not hard to see why—with 237 sunny days per year, there’s a lot of solar power to be harnessed. But even though solar roofing is a great idea, a lot of people still have questions.

Luckily, Classic Roofing & Construction has been installing solar energy systems in Florida for 20 years, so we know all the ins and outs. Here’s your fast, simple guide to what you should know about solar roofing options in Florida.

Should I Get Solar Roofing in Florida?

In Florida, solar roofing comes with a lot of advantages and very few downsides. Some of the best perks of installing a solar roofing system include:

  • Lower Energy Bill: Each year, your solar roofing system could save you hundreds to thousands of dollars on your electric bill. So the sooner you install solar panels or solar shingles, the sooner they can start paying themselves off.
  • Increased Property Value: On average, homes with solar roofing systems sell for comparable homes without solar power. So if you’re looking to create long-term value in your home, going solar is a great way to make that happen without breaking the bank.
  • Improved Curb Appeal: There’s a common misconception that solar roofing can make your home less attractive to potential buyers. But the truth is that modern options for solar roofing in Florida are discrete, elegant, and will actually make your home look better, not worse.

After those fast facts on solar roofing in Florida, let’s look at your different options when it comes to installing a solar energy system on your roof.

Solar Panels

The classic option, solar panels are the go-to when it comes to adding solar power to your structure. And while many property owners worry about the stereotype of large, bulky solar panels, that’s not the only option out there.

At Classic, we use DecoTech solar panels that are unlike the typical solar panels you might imagine. Instead of sitting on top of your roof, these solar panels are integrated into your roof, like a skylight. This creates a low-profile look that does not disrupt your property’s aesthetic. And it’s water-tight, so you never have to worry about trapped water leading to algae and damaging your solar panels. For all of these reasons, we recommend these solar panels to anyone curious about solar roofing options.

Solar Shingles

If you’re interested in an alternative solar roofing system, solar shingles could be exactly what you’re looking for. This exciting new solar roofing option is great for anyone who wants a solar energy system without the look of solar panels.

For our projects with solar roofing in Florida, we use Timberline Solar™ solar shingles. But not just anyone can install these pieces of roofing technology—installation requires GAF certification. Luckily, Classic annually re-trains and renews to maintain our GAF Master Elite certification. Only two percent of roofing companies qualify for this certification, and it allows us to provide the best products and the strongest warranties to our Florida customers.
