Choosing Solar Roofing for a Texas Residential Property

There’s a wide variety of roofing materials used on Texas homes today, as many in our state already know. From asphalt shingles and clay shingles to concrete, metal and slate, your residential roofing options give you much to choose from. In recent years, one option that has noticeably grown in popularity is (of course) solar roofing. But should you consider installing solar shingles on your own home, or are there better alternatives out there?

Why Choose Solar Roofing for Your Texas Home?

In a nutshell, solar energy saves homeowners money. The initial cost might make you think otherwise, but solar roofing helps homeowners save immediately on their monthly bills. Not to mention, this particular type of roofing can significantly increase your home’s value. Solar energy is a renewable energy source. With all the sunny days we get in Texas (and even on overcast days) your home can generate electricity naturally!

Other types of roofs might be cheaper or come in a variety of colors and styles, but can they help you save money in the long run? Can they help lower your electricity bills? Are they environmentally friendly? Can they convert sunlight into electricity? We’ve just named some of the top characteristics of solar roofing, and people all over Texas are enjoying them as we speak!

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, Texas had significantly increased the total capacity of megawatts of solar energy installed as of the end of 2016. There are approximately 180,000 homes in Texas powered by solar. We hope yours is next!

Additional Benefits of Solar Roofing

Homeowners across Texas are recognizing the benefits of solar shingle roofing. And while the financial implications of solar are of critical importance, there are additional benefits to consider.

Increases Property Value

A solar roof appeals to a cross-section of people who are looking to maximize their investment. Homes equipped with solar power systems can promote this valuable selling point to potential buyers.

Long Lifespan and Durability

Solar panels are designed to withstand outside factors like wind, rain and hail. These roofs require minimal maintenance and have a long lifespan – often 25–30 years or more – making them a long-term investment.


Solar panels can be installed on various roof types, sizes and pitches. There are also different types of solar panels, allowing for customization. Such versatility makes this material both an effective residential and commercial roofing solution.
