Choosing a Solar Roof Installer

Find out what to look for in a full-service solar installer to make going solar more simple, sustainable, and cost-effective.


So you’re ready to get solar panels installed and create your own green, renewable energy, but you want to make sure you take the proper steps and choose the right installer.

Choosing a solar installer who will help you with everything involved in the process—like EMT Solar & Roofing—is important to ensure you get the most value and return on investment from your new solar panel system. Our experts will help you harness all the lifestyle, budget, and eco-friendly benefits available; here’s how to get started and what to ask:

What to Ask of Your Solar Provider

  • Do you have the permits that my city and state require?
  • Based on my monthly energy usage, how many panels do I need?
  • What are your workmanship and product warranties?
  • What savings and credits are available to me as a homeowner?

While you can work with solar equipment manufacturers, solar dealers, or solar financing companies, you want to primarily choose an installer who can help you with each step of “going solar” from start to finish—like EMT Solar & Roofing. Here are some must-haves requirements you should consider when you choose a solar panel installer that you can find in one place when you work with us!

What to Look for in a Great Solar Installer?

You want to make sure your new solar system is built to last at least 25 years. As a GAF Certified Master Elite Contractor, we offer the best warranties available and our 5-year labor warranty to cover our work – even if it’s meant to last.

A locally or family-owned and operated team you can trust
Choosing a trustworthy, local team with shared values means you’ll have experts by your side who care about giving you a quality installation rather than some global solar manufacturer trying to earn a buck.

Industry-leading standards and best-in-class warranties
We’re proud to provide the best warranties in the industry for solar panels as well as labor warranty – although our installations are meant to last!

Options for financing as well as buying or leasing solar panels

A contractor team with advanced roofing expertise and knowledge
