We all need plenty of energy to power our homes, cars and electronics. With increasing concerns about depletion of fossil fuels and the effects on the environment, it only stands to reason that many of us want to find ways to minimize our environmental footprint. Saving money on energy costs is also a big concern. Some home and building owners are using the power of the sun to create their own energy because installing solar panels can have a positive effect on both the environment and the pocketbook.
A client recently contacted us about his experience using DaVinci Bellaforté slate roof tiles for his California home. Our eco friendly roof makes a great foundation to hold solar panels as they can be walked on for cleaning without fear of breaking. See the pictures of his 44 solar panel system atop our slate gray tiles by visiting our website customer testimonials page.
Solar panels add a lot of weight to roofs, but fortunately DaVinci lightweight roofing tiles can hold up the extra weight. Their durability is unsurpassed for withstanding inclement weather and natural environmental conditions that could otherwise compromise a roof’s integrity.
Have you installed solar panels on top of your DaVinci roof? If so, we would love to hear your story and how you are saving energy! Please share your story with us here.
