There are several advantages to installing solar on a flat roof compared to other types of solar installations.
A flat rooftop allows for flexibility in layout and positioning of the solar array. With a flat roof, each panel is able to be positioned to get sunlight for longer than on a pitched roof facing a less optimal direction.
Another benefit to installing solar on a flat roof is the ability to use ballasted racking. Ballasted racking systems use weighted blocks to hold down racking for your solar panels. Each component that touches the roofing surface sits on a rubber footing. This means all of your panels can be placed without putting a single hole in your roof.
Our designs are engineered to protect your array from wind loads. You can rest easy knowing your solar equipment is built sturdy, while keeping your roofing material in pristine condition.
US SolarWorks’ professional designs come with a stamped structural engineering document reviewing your building to ensure the weight of our equipment is properly supported.
