Why remove solar panels?

Customers most often need solar panels removed and reinstalled when they’re having a new roof installed or their current roof repaired.

While removing solar panels isn’t difficult, it’s something you should leave to a solar panel expert. When done correctly, there should be no impact on your roofing, siding, fixtures, etc. However, incorrect removal can cause significant damage to shingles, slate, tiles, skylights, windows, etc.

How we work

Our Solar Removal Process

At TENCO SOLAR, our technicians will ensure that each element is disconnected correctly and that no damage occurs to the structure, panels, components, or racking. We’ll also make sure your solar panels, components, and racking are stored safely and securely until you’re ready to reinstall them. Our teams abide by rigid safety protocols and procedures to ensure a safe and smooth removal process.

Once your roof repairs or replacement is complete, our team will reinstall your solar panels following the same rigid safety protocols and procedures. After the reinstallation is complete, we thoroughly inspect and test your solar panels to confirm proper operation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Solar Panels

Is it worth the cost to replace old solar panels?

Absolutely. Solar technology continues to evolve, and modern solar panels are far more efficient and effective than their predecessors. Replacing your aging panels with a modern alternative can substantially improve your system's capacity.

Is it necessary to remove solar panels for roof repairs or replacement?

It depends on what exactly you're doing to your roof. If you're having repairs made near your solar panels, removing the panels can protect them from any accidental damage. When you need to replace the entire roof or a section beneath the solar panel, removal of the panels will be necessary for the roofers to access the roof.
