Ryan and Lisa Bicking were the recipients of the first GAF solar roof installed by American Home in Maryland. “American Home Contractors kept us updated along the process about the permits and ordering. The crew was flawless, not disruptive, and clean. They protected our house. From start to finish I was very pleased,” said Ryan Bicking.
“Our customers consistently ask us about solar when replacing their roofs. With GAF Energy’s solar roof product, there is now a solar roofing system that we’re confident in offering to our customers–it’s a tremendous product,” said David Silverstein of American Home. “A solar roof can help pay for an entirely new roof over time by helping reduce homeowners’ monthly electric bills; it’s a choice that makes good economic sense for many customers.”
“It makes perfect sense to go solar than when you’re replacing your roof,” said Keally DeWitt, Vice President at GAF Energy. “Homeowner demand is on the rise for clean energy that can help reduce energy costs, which is why we’re excited to partner with the excellent team at American Home to offer GAF Energy’s solar systems to their customers.”
The GAF Energy solar system couples innovative, attractive, and affordable solar technology with fast, easy installation. Designed to provide a good-looking, low-profile alternative to typical rack-mounted solar panels — which are typically drilled through the roof’s shingles — GAF Energy solar integrates directly with the roofing system and requires no penetration of the roofing membrane. GAF Energy uses premium solar panels to optimize power output with a matching color profile to the roof to maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to reduce the risk of leaks and animal intrusion.Buyer Beware Webinar: Lessons Learned from Inverter Testing with PVEL – April 6 – Register here for free
