Enjoy reliable power from above with solar panels on your roof.
Up On the Roof
When selecting a location for your solar panels, we consider factors such as sun exposure, temperature fluctuations, wind speed, and shading from nearby trees or buildings. It’s also important to make sure that the area has adequate space for installation and access to electric panels.
That said, most solar panel installations in Indianapolis are attached to the structure’s roof. Roof mounted solar panels have many advantages, including being out of the shade of trees, protected from heavy winds, and leaving ground space available for other uses. Roof mounted solar panel installations generally cost less than ground mounted arrays.
Solar panels can be installed on just about any roof type, including asphalt shingles, wood shakes, clay tiles, slate, concrete, rubber or metal. Even a flat or low slope roof can handle most solar installations. However, the installation process and mounting hardware might vary from material to material.
A standard roof-mount solar panel system uses rails attached to your home’s roof to support the solar panels. Because we are in the northern hemisphere, solar panels facing south will have longer exposure all day long, giving them the maximum possible time to collect sunlight and convert it into energy. However, we have also had success in mounting solar installations on east and west facing roof surfaces.
What About My Roof?
Most newer homes are engineered to handle the additional weight of solar panels and equipment. Before starting, we will ensure your rooftop can support the weight of the panels with no issues. A roof mount solar panel system may not work for you if you have an older home or property that isn’t as structurally sound.
One issue to address is roofing warranties on existing roofs. Many roofing companies will not honor their manufacturer’s warranty if a solar installation is added to the roof. However, Bone Dry Solar is one of the few companies authorized by Owens Corning Roofing to install solar panels on their roofs and still have the protection of their Platinum Roof Warranty.

Soon you can begin to enjoy the energy savings of generating your own “power from above” with a roof mounted solar system that generates the energy you need without generating pollution or high electricity costs.
