Photovoltaic and Reflective Roofing in Rancho Cordova, CA
Photovoltaic roofing has a more common name that you might be familiar with. It's known as solar panel roofing and it's gaining in popularity, particularly here in California where energy conservation is at the forefront of all our minds. If you want to have PV Roofing installed on your home, we applaud your choice and wish to help you any way that we can.
To begin with, we'd like to sit down with you and go over the pros and cons. It's a major investment and you'll want to be sure it's the right one for you.
A new roof is something that you spend money on when you plan on keeping your home for many years or you're looking to raise the property value before you make a sale. PV Roofing is a good choice either way, but the question you need to ask is if the savings in fuel bills over time or the increase in value justifies the expense. You'll also want to look at the real estate market. Will your home sell? Will property values go up or are they expected to decline? The new solar panels might raise the value, but if that value has already dropped they will just bring it back to its previous level, if that.
That's it for the cons. Here at Our Rancho Cordova Roofing Company, we're not looking to discourage you from installing PV Roofing. We just want you to look at the practical aspects. If we had our way, the entire Sacramento Area would be powered by solar energy, and someday it might be, but for now there are practical concerns that you as a homeowner need to look at. If you install PV Roofing today, you will save money on your fuel bills and your house will sell for more if you choose to put it on the market, but the expense to attain those benefits will be significant. Think carefully before you make it.
More affordable than PV Roofing, it is basically what it sounds like. The materials used reflect sunlight rather than absorb it, so the building's interior is kept cooler naturally, cutting down on energy consumption and fuel costs. The reflective roofing materials can be shiny and bright or a basic white, something common in the Southern hemisphere. Call our office any time if you'd like to learn more or to order reflective or PV Roofing services.
