As a small business owner, you never want to say no to someone who wats to hire you. But many solar installation companies won’t work on homes that have slate roofs. Obviously, in New Jersey, that’s quite a few homes! Slate roofs are popular in New Jersey because they’re strong and durable enough to stand up to four seasons of weather. They’re fireproof, long lasting, and attractive. But can you mount solar panels on a slate roof?
The answer is YES.
The next question is can installing solar panels on slate roofs in New Jersey be profitable?
The answer to this question is YES as well.
Let’s unpack that a little bit. The biggest problem with working on slate roofs in general is the fact the slate roofing tiles are surprisingly fragile, despite being made out of long-lasting stone. Drill a mounting hole in the wrong place, and it’s very likely the slate will chip, crack or even shatter.
When that happens, the homeowner’s not happy – and you, as a business owner now on the hook for the cost of necessary repairs – you’re not going to be too happy either. So how do you stop your crew from drilling mounting holes in the wrong place?
Well, you can have them measure, carefully and precisely, for each and every hole they need to drill. This will slow the progress on the job down to such a degree that making a profit can be unlikely.
Or you can use the Solar Slate Plate. This amazing tool, designed by a solar installation professional for solar installation professionals, cuts the typical installation time on a slate roof in half. How? By quickly and accurately identifying exactly where mounting holes need to be drilled without damaging the tiles.
There’s no measuring. There’s no guesswork. There’s just getting the job done right – and fast! That means more money in your pocket, and who wouldn’t want that? If you’re interested in installing solar on slate roofs in New Jersey, you need the Solar Slate Plate.
