Metal Roofing & Solar Panels: Perfect Pairing For All Seasons

Two great things that go great together.

Installing solar panels on a metal roof — or installing a metal roof on a home with existing solar panels — is becoming an increasingly popular home improvement choice. In fact, solar panels and metal roofing go great together!

Mounting solar panels on an aluminum roof can increase your home’s worth, improve its curb appeal, and provide an additional energy source for the home.

So when people ask the roofing experts at Mountaintop Metal Roofing, “Can solar panels be installed on a metal roof?”, the answer is a no-doubt-about-it “Yes!”

Mountaintop Metal Roofing

We can work with contractors to make sure your new solar panels are installed along with your new metal roof as part of a seamless roofing project. 

And it should come as no surprise that we also have the skills and the experience needed for building a metal roof over an existing roof with solar panels,

What we’re getting at here is this: Mounting solar panels alongside an aluminum roofing project is becoming a big part of our business, regardless of metal roofing style. For example, we have customers who tell us they want solar panels on metal shingle roofs or other types of aluminum roofing systems.

The best way to put solar panels on a metal roof is by having them properly installed by masters of the craft. We have extensive industry experience, and our knowledge helps us head off any possible difficulties with contractors who install solar panels on metal roofs.

About Solar Power and Metal Roofing

Solar power has been a popular energy source for decades. As a renewable energy source, it allows homeowners to use sunlight to power their homes.

This cheaper and cleaner energy is a great option for residents of the Pacific Northwest. And as materials improve and the costs of installation and upkeep become more reasonable for homeowners, there may have never been a better time to tackle this project.

Why consider an interlocking aluminum roofing system with solar panels?

First of all, aluminum roofing can work wonders when it comes to energy efficiency. Because of their unique reflective coatings, panels reflect heat away from your home, keeping it cooler during the summer. That means your air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard.

Installing solar panels with your aluminum roof can also significantly help lower the amount of energy you use in your home in order to keep the inside at a comfortable temperature.

Secondly, solar panels can last decades — up to 30 years in many cases. Metal roofs also have a longer lifespan — sometimes up to 60 years.

In other words, if you choose a metal roof installation, you can trust that your solar panel installation will not outlive the lifespan of your amazing roof.

In fact, you are making an investment in the durability of your roof and in your home’s energy source so you can ultimately save money on your electricity bill in the long run. Of course, reducing the amount of electricity you need to power your home is inherently eco-friendly.
