We all know that the solar installation business is extremely competitive. If you want to make payroll, cover the bills, and maybe have a little left over for a rainy day, you’ve got to do as many jobs as you can as well as you can. Time is almost literally money.
That’s why many solar installation professionals say NO THANK YOU to slate roof installations. Why this hesitancy? It’s because slate roofing tiles are notoriously fragile. Even though they’re made of stone, slate roofing tiles will crack, chip, or split if they’re not handled with care. Drill a mounting hole in the wrong place, and you’re going to wind up with a damaged roofing tile – and an irritated homeowner – on your hands. For this reason, many crews work very slowly and carefully when they’re on slate. This means the job’s just not as profitable – and that means you’re not happy.
Well, there’s a way for you and your homeowners to be happy. The Solar Slate Plate is a special affordable tool that makes installing solar on slate roofing tiles simple, easy, and fast. All of the measuring and guesswork about where mounting holes need to be drilled is completely eliminated. Your crew can work quickly, efficiently, and professionally. You’ll see your average installation time drop significantly – in many cases by nearly half! – which means the jobs become more profitable. As an added bonus, homeowners are happier when their installations are faster.
It’s not hard to use the Solar Slate Plate. This special tool was designed by a solar installation professional for solar installation professionals. It’s made to be used on the roof, without interrupting the normal workflow. Most crews can learn how to use the Solar Slate Plate in less than a day and it’s priced for the small business owner.
