3 Reasons Why Solar Shingles Are
Superior To Solar Panels

Ditch Outdated Solar Panels And Move Into 21st
Century Solar Shingle Excellence

We’ve all seen them…the bulky, oversized, and outdated solar panels. And not only are they eyesores, but they also present their own set of issues – potential roofing structural compromise, water damage, and lower performance output.

Fortunately, there’s an innovative product on the market that addresses these issues and makes your energy savings much more effective – solar shingles.

Solar shingles are simply the future of solar energy solutions, giving homeowners the perfect mixture of performance, savings, and beauty. Plus, at Houston Roofing & Construction, our GAF solar shingles give you even more benefits than traditional solar shingles.

And that’s not an empty claim – we can prove it! Here are three reasons why our solar shingles are far superior to solar panels:

#1. Covered Under One Warranty

Most solar panels are made by solar manufacturers – NOT roofing manufacturers. And this would be fine…except solar panels are typically installed ON ROOFS.

Not only can this lead to potential roof leaks or structural compromise, but solar panel installation almost always voids your roofing warranty.

However, when you invest in solar shingles manufactured by THE SAME company that created the rest of your roof, you get the advantage of one warranty.

Our GAF solar shingles are covered under the same warranty as your roof when you purchase your whole roofing system together. This ensures your integrated roof stays protected and gives you greater peace of mind

#2. Guaranteed Output

Most solar panels have a limited life span and lower performance output ratings the closer they reach the end of their “life.” This means you’ll likely see less energy savings and less performance output the longer you have your panels.

On the other hand, GAF has taken charge of this common performance problem with their Solar Max Limited Warranty.

How does it work?

Every five years for 25 years, GAF guarantees a cumulative production amount (in kWh). If your solar shingles’ output falls short of that expected number, they cut you a check to make up the difference. It’s that simple.

#3. Seamless Beauty

You can save all you want in energy bills, but if you’re unhappy with how your home looks, what’s the point? No one wants their home to be the subject of neighborhood gossip. And unfortunately, that’s usually the case when it comes to solar panel installation.

However, with GAF’s solar shingles, you can enjoy energy savings AND gorgeous roofing aesthetics. That’s because our solar shingles lay flat on your roof (as opposed to rack-mounted panels) to create an integrated look.

Plus, they’re available in several color options to blend with the architectural shingle aesthetic of the rest of your roof.
