Why Invest in Solar Shingles? 

Replacing your roof is a significant investment in your home. Compared to other options, solar shingles offer a number of financial and environmental benefits: 

  1. State and federal tax credits are available to Long Island homeowners who install solar roofs. 
  2. Solar power protects the environment and reduces your home’s carbon footprint. 
  3. Switching to solar energy may lower your monthly electric bill. 
  4. Stylish, sturdy solar shingles may improve your home’s curb appeal and resale value.

Tax credits for solar energy 

Some homeowners shy away from making the switch to solar energy because they expect materials and installation to be expensive, but federal and state incentives, such as tax credits and rebates, make solar roofs more affordable. 

In addition, many A1 Roofing customers qualify for 0% financing, reducing the up-front costs for your roof.

Decreased electric bills

The desire for a lower monthly electric bill is Long Island homeowners’ major motivator for making the switch to solar energy. With solar power, some—or even all—of the electricity you use in your home can be free.

In fact, you might even discover a credit on your monthly electric bill for using less power from the grid!

Raise your home’s resale value

Throughout Long Island, solar roofs are in high demand. Home buyers recognize the many benefits of solar energy—and are willing to pay a premium for a home with them already installed! As a result, many newly constructed homes are being built with this amenity installed by default.

Aside from their practicality, solar roofs are sleek and attractive enough to suit today’s most popular curb appeal trends. Some solar roofing options look much like traditional roofing and are difficult to detect from a distance. Others feature an ultra-modern style that many homeowners find desirable.

Thanks to a combination of tax credits, rebates, and 0% financing options, installing solar panels or solar shingles is a surprisingly affordable way to increase your home’s resale value. 

Solar Shingle Technology 

It’s no wonder that many homeowners don’t favor the idea of installing solar panels on their existing roofs. While solar panels have served as a cost-effective way to generate solar power since 1956, they can be bulky, fragile, and too heavy for some roofs to support safely. Solar panels may also clash with the desired look some homeowners want for their home

If you want to switch to solar energy but you aren’t interested in installing solar panels, solar shingles are an attractive alternative.
