Why Choose a Solar and Roofing Company in One
Sunpro Solar’s roofing company, Buildpro, installs quality, affordable roofing that works with home solar systems. We work together to ensure that your roof stays secure, and your warranty stays pristine.
Installing solar panels can actually extend the life of your roof, protecting your roof from sunlight, snow, and ice. A roof that is damaged or near the end of its lifetime is not ideal for solar panels, but if you are getting a new roof or roof replacement, it could be the perfect time to switch to solar.
Do Solar Panels Ruin Your Roof?
The answer is no, as long as you have them installed by a solar company with roofing experience. In fact, in this case, solar panels can actually extend the life of your roof. This is because solar panels add an extra layer of protection to your roof from the elements such as rain, wind, hail and sun. They soak up all that sunshine and convert it into clean energy you can use to power your home instead!
Sunpro Solar works together with our sister company, Buildpro, to ensure that your roof and your solar panels are properly installed. You could save a ton on your new roof by getting solar panels at the same time — just ask our experts how you can save on your roof replacement and solar combination.Get a Free Solar + Roofing Quote

Roofing Experience Results in Better Solar Panel Installations
When it comes to choosing your solar company, you want to pick one that has the experience and knowledge that comes from roofing. Getting a new roof and solar panels at the same time means you can save a ton on your new roof and experience protection from serious storms and the watts produced by the photovoltaics in your solar panels. When considering solar options and roofing options, ask your Sunpro Solar energy specialist on how you can save on your roof replacement and solar combo as well as your energy bills.
Installing Solar Panels on an Asphalt Shingle Roof
Shingle roofs are very common on residences, and also common with conventional solar panels. If the roof is fairly new (just a few years old), or you replace your roof with the intention of installing solar panels, your roof should last you throughout the lifetime of your new solar panels. On a solar roof shingles are a perfect style.
Asphalt shingles or a tile roof can be perfectly paired with solar panels. Roof replacement typically takes 1-3 days, though it can vary depending on the home’s size. A well-installed and maintained shingle roof lasts 20-25 years. Along with solar shingles are a great option for capitalizing solid quality and energy savings.
Get Solar Panels Installed on a Metal Roof
As with shingles, metal roofing takes only a few days to install or replace. Metal roofs are excellent for solar panels and solar products. They are highly durable, low-profile, and will likely last longer than the solar panels themselves — especially if the metal roof is newly installed.
Better yet, because metal roofs have an average 60 year lifespan your roof installation will last decades. In fact, some metal roofs have lasted over 100 years, making them an ideal long-term choice. And since a metal roof helps your home be more energy efficient by reflecting heat and cold, it’s a fantastic match!
Install Solar Panels on a Flat Roof
When performed by a professional roofing company, installing solar panels on a flat roof should cause no more issues than any other installation of a solar roof system. Panel removal shouldn’t be an issue either. A flat roof lifespan is typically 20-30 years, which makes it an even better roof style for rooftop solar.
While more typical on commercial buildings, flat roofs can be perfect for solar energy. Your solar installers can point the solar panels in any direction they need to for maximum sunlight exposure. The solar cells in the panels love the abundant sunshine. You can also install panels that follow the sun for even higher energy capture.
