If solar panels are put on the roof correctly, they shouldn’t cause leaks. In fact, adding solar panels to your roof can help keep leaks from happening by giving your roof more protection. It is important to hire a professional and experienced solar energy company to put in solar panels. These companies use special tools and methods to make sure that the panels are attached to your roof securely and won’t leak.
They will also protect your roof from water damage by using flashing and sealants to make a watertight barrier. Also, solar panels can help your roof last longer by giving it more insulation and protection from the weather. This can help prevent damage from heat, cold, and moisture, which are some of the main reasons why roofs leak. Overall, solar panels that are installed correctly shouldn’t cause roof leaks and can even help to stop them. Choose a solar energy company with a good name and a lot of experience to make sure your panels are installed correctly and won’t hurt your roof.
