When you think of hiring a roofer, you normally think of shingles or metal roofs. On the other hand, you probably don’t think of solar panels. Yet, the two are starting to be merged into one in the same.
Solar Shingles are the latest innovation that we are seeing on the market. However, they all that we are being led to believe. In this video, you will find out.
Solar shingles are certainly expensive. They require specially trained roofers to install. Further, this kind of expense only really makes sense in urban areas because those houses are more expensive to begin with anyway. Yet, the potential for green energy is enticing. Further, more and more competitors are entering the market. This competition may drive down prices along with innovations in technology. This could result in solar shingles that are practical for many people in the future. However, right now they are more fun than anything. If you really want to reduce your carbon footprint, you are better off buying normal solar panels that are more efficient and less costly. You would really only consider solar shingles for the novelty or if you were going to replace your roof anyway.
