Roofing and Solar Advantage
Burns & Scalo has been helping homeowners with their roofs for almost 60 years. Since solar panels are primarily installed on roofs, it is important to select an installer that is not only an expert in solar technology, but roofing systems as well.
As a roofing company first, we will ensure that the PV technology for your home will be compatible with your roofing system. Your roof is an important asset, and it is vital to protect the roof and your home by selecting a solar technology that does not jeopardize the water-tight integrity of the roof nor void your roof's existing warranty.
Financial Benefits of Solar
Having a solar-equipped roof on your home can help slash your energy bills by up to 70%. Additionally, there may be tax incentives which would help generate a faster return on investment for your solar purchase. Contact a Burns & Scalo Roofing Specialist for More Information.
Apollo Solar Shingles
Burns & Scalo is proud to be an authorized installer of Apollo Solar Shingles. Apollo Solar Shingles integrate seamlessly with your rooftop. They are specifically designed for shingle applications and are the most "roofing-friendly" product choice when compared to other photovoltaic systems.
Superior Energy Performance
Apollo Solar Shingles will harnesses more energy per square foot than any other residential photovoltaic product, significantly decreasing your home's draw on the grid and reducing carbon emissions.
With its maximum output potential, Apollo can generate the majority of the electricity your home uses during the day. In addition, if you do not consume all the electricity your roof produces, the excess power flows back through your meter into the power grid. This return of energy to the grid results in your electric bill to decrease even further.
As a roofing company, Burns & Scalo will ensure that your solar and roof investment will be a sound investment for many decades to come. That's the Burns & Scalo Difference.
