There has been a lot of buzz lately about integrating energy efficient, planet-friendly devices into the modern home. Everyone wants to have all of the latest technology, without paying a hefty price in order to help out the environment. When it comes to your new roofing materials, though, your Nashville roofing experts here at Weather Tamer want you to know that we can work with any type of material.
Some of the newest advancements include solar panel shingles. These are nifty devices that blend right in to your home because they look just like shingles do! Although we don’t carry these energy efficient devices, you can get them for yourself and we will gladly help you to install them along with your new roofing. Your Knoxville roofing experts are capable of handling any special job that comes our way.
These solar shingles allow you to replace portions of the regular shingles on your roof with solar panels. They are small, shaped like shingles, and install straight onto the rooftop like regular shingles would. The best part is that you don’t need a lot of them to make a difference. Your Nashville roofing experts suggest that the average home owner only needs to install a handful of these to offset their average monthly power bill.
When installed, these appear like dark shingles, blending in to the rest of your roofing. They plug directly into each other, so there are no messy wires to deal with either. As the sun passes over your home, your solar shingles charge away, adding power to your home, while the rest of your shingles just sit there and look pretty. Some home owners install these in straight lines across their roof, while others bunch them all together in one spot. However you like to have them installed is no problem.
Best of all, they function like normal shingles and don’t create any gaps in your roofing system. Unlike traditional solar panels, that have to be installed on heavy brackets that can damage your roof, these become a functional part of your roof. They are every bit as water proof as the other shingles are, and when installed correctly, for a seamless bond with the regular shingles around them to keep the water out and the hot or cold air inside your home.
Having these few special shingles installed on your home along with your regular new ones is no problem for the professionals at your Nashville roofing company. Just let us know that you have these and are wanting them installed, and we can take care of everything for you along with your new roof.
After all, protecting the environment starts at home, and any energy efficient option you can include will make your home that much more environmentally friendly. Regardless of the new technology you’re wanting to install, let us do the dirty work, high on your roof top, for you.
