This is one of the most common questions homeowners have when it comes time to go solar. In virtually all cases, the answer is no. Roof leaks after solar panels are extremely rare. When roof leaking after the solar panels are fitted does occur, however, it usually becomes evident very quickly after the installation process is finished. Almost always, homeowners will notice the leak within the first year, when it begins to rain or snow.
Fortunately, these leaks are quite rare, and there are things you can do to find the root of the issue and address it quickly – before it does lasting damage to your home. NY State Solar uses the only solar mounting system that will not void your roof warranty. On top of that, we warranty all of our penetrations and have a $5,000,000 per job insurance policy to protect you in the event damage were to occur.
