Specifically, here are some of the benefits you can take advantage of by going solar:

Increased home value

Properties with solar roofs tend to sell more at a higher price compared to others. This is because the more energy-efficient the property is, the higher they are valued. In addition, they sell faster as well so if you’re planning on selling your home in the near future, going solar is a great option. Buyers nowadays are more attracted to buying properties that not only can generate their own energy but are also eco-friendly. Hire us and Galvan Roofing will make sure your home’s value will go through the roof. The solar roof and solar panels we install are of high quality.

Earn tax credits and rebates

Although the solar installation may require higher upfront costs both for installation and materials, that can be cut in half with local rebates and Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs). That’s on top of the 30% of total system costs you can get back from equipment and installation as a federal income tax credit when you file your taxes. If you’re not familiar with this, Galvan Roofing will explain the whole process thoroughly so you can maximize rebates and tax credits. We’ll provide a detailed costing so it will be easier for you to compute how much you can get back when you file your taxes.

Solar Roofing

Solar roofs refers to the type of roof that can generate its own electricity because it is built with integrated materials that convert sunlight into electrical power. It may be part of a building’s initial construction or a post-construction upgrade. It appears as seamless elements of architectural design.


Although typically thin, solar roofs are quite durable and resilient against harsh weather. There are several different types of solar roofs you can choose from, depending on your needs and aesthetic goals. Galvan Roofing can help you choose which is the best option for you!

Solar Panels

A solar panel – also called a solar electric panel, is a group of cells that make energy from sunlight – all mounted together in a framework called a panel. They are installed on top of the roof and are a more popular option among homeowners mainly because they are adjustable, portable, and affordable.


You can angle them to maximize insolation and remove and reinstall them. They also cost less than solar roofs so if you are on a tighter budget but still want to go solar, this may be a good option for you. Galvan Roofing is an expert solar installation contractor.
