Hold onto your hats, folks!
It’s full-on summer in Missouri and Illinois, and that means thermometer-busting heat, sticky humidity, and Instagram-worthy sunsets. But that’s not all summer brings. With the warmer weather also comes summer storms.
Summer weather patterns in the Midwest can be pretty wild. And with wild weather, we often see hail, wind, and even tornadoes that can cause major storm damage to property.
When you need a roof replaced because of weather damage, it’s complicated enough to mess with insurance and contractors. But what if you also have solar panels?
It may seem like just another thing to have to deal with, but not if you’re part of the Solar Sam fam! We’ve got our Missouri solar and Illinois solar customers covered when they need a roof replacement due to hail damage. Let’s look at how this works.
Force of Nature: Storm Damage to Roof
Oops, she did it again!
Mother Nature has paid your home, business, or farm a little visit…and she had a bit of a tantrum while she was in town!
Now you’re left wondering how to fix the storm damage to your roof. And if you’ve already installed solar panels, you’re probably also unsure how to handle that.
Solar Sam is Here for You When Mother Nature Strikes
The good news is that Solar Sam will take excellent care of you (and your solar panels) if you need roof repair. And it’s super easy!
Just give us a call, let us know that you need to get your solar panels removed to fix your roof, and leave the rest to us. We’ll remove the panels, store them safely, and then reinstall them when the roof has been repaired. All with zero hassle for you!
There are a few things to consider when you need roof replacement or repairs. Let’s dive into those now.
Things to Consider with Weather Damage, Roof Repair, and Roof Replacement
The first thing you’re likely wondering about is the cost for solar panel removal and reinstallation. The average range will run anywhere from $1500 to $6000, depending on the complexity of your solar setup, where you are located, and who you hire to handle the removal and reinstall. This cost will usually be separate from (and in addition to) the cost of repairs to your actual roof.
You May Have Insurance Coverage
More good news? Some property owners may have insurance that will cover the removal and reinstallation of solar panels. Be sure to check with your insurance agent or adjuster when they come out to inspect your roof and estimate damages.
Other Reasons You Might Need Solar Panel Removal and Reinstallation
Maybe you have been fortunate and haven’t had storm damage or hail damage. Lucky you! You may still need to remove and replace solar panels at some point for things like:
- Repairing or replacing your roof
- Moving your solar energy system to another home or building
- Replacing a broken or outdated solar array or entire system
- Upgrading to a new solar energy system
If you’re in Missouri or Illinois, Solar Sam has you covered in all these instances, too!
