Will solar cause roof leaks?

Many people considering solar are concerned about roof leaks, but understanding the equipment involved can help.

Most roofs already have thousands of holes in them. Shingles and tiles are nailed into our plywood decking - but the equipment is designed to prevent leaks, and usually does, unless the installer makes a mistake.

When installed properly, solar mounting hardware is just as (if not more) water-tight than your existing roofing material. Click here to see a video example

Even with the cutting edge solar mounting hardware, leaks are still possible if the equipment is installed incorrectly (although this is very rare--roof leaks at Project Solar occur in less than 1 in 1,000 installs).

This is why every Project Solar install comes standard with a double backed 10 year workmanship warranty. If something goes wrong, both the install company and Project Solar guarantee the quality of the workmanship in full.
