If you’re a solar installer who’s trying to find a smart way to grow your business, consider expanding into slate roof solar installation. While only a small percentage of American homeowners have slate roofs, these homeowners tend to be highly affluent and very interested in making the switch to solar. They are frustrated, however, because very few solar installation companies work on slate roofs.
Why is that? The answer is due to the fragile nature of slate roofing tiles. When installing solar on slate roofing tile, it’s critical that the mounting holes be drilled in precisely the right place. When the mounting holes are drilled too close to the edge of the tile, pressures and stresses can cause the tile to split, crack or shatter. Preventing this means lots of slow, careful measuring. And you know what happens when your team has to move slowly – you lose money.
The Solar Slate Plate eliminates the need for slow, careful measuring. In fact, using the Solar Slate Plate can cut the time needed for the typical solar installation on slate in half.
What is the Solar Slate Plate? It’s a one of a kind tool designed by a solar professional for other solar professionals. The Solar Slate Plate is priced to appeal to the small business owner. Your crew can learn to use the Solar Slate Plate in less than a day. Then you’ll be able to start saying YES to profitable solar installation on slate roof jobs.
Growing a solar installation business is tough. There are only so many homes in any one market, and once a home has solar installed, they’re not going to need you again. One way to maintain a steady flow of business is to offer your services to as many homeowners as possible. That means learning how to use the Solar Slate Plate. Capture all the business your local competitors may be saying no to.
