Why Metal Roofing Has a Bright Future in Solar Energy Tech

S-5! Solar Energy Tech
October 24, 2023 at 9:00 a.m.

By Adam Cabrera. 

As solar technology advances, the integration of solar installations and metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular. 

In a recent episode of Roofing Road Trips™, host Heidi J. Ellsworth sat down with Rob Haddock from S-5® to discuss the ins and outs of metal roofing, the rise of solar installations and how solar is transforming the industry. 

Rob touched on the growing popularity of solar installations on metal roofs. "Solar's not going away, and there's a huge demand for it," he said. Rob emphasized the financial benefits of solar energy and how it seamlessly integrates with metal roofing, which he described as "the most user-friendly roof there is." 

Metal roofing and solar technology also are a perfect match in that they both offer long-lasting durability and sustainability. "I invented a concept to attach things to standing seam metal roofs without penetration," Rob said. This has led to S-5's product line that allows for easy mounting of solar panels on metal roofs, reducing the risks of leaks and damage.  

Rob also spoke about the importance of adaptability and proactivity in the roofing industry. The rising trend of solar installations is something that contractors should take note of. He suggested that roofing businesses consider diversifying by incorporating solar installations into their services. This move is not only smart but necessary given the growing global demand for renewable energy options. 

The conversation also highlighted that despite the changes and uncertainties in the industry, one thing remains consistent: the demand for solar is increasing. Contractors who are proactive and adaptable, who are ready to shift and "not lose momentum," according to Rob, are the ones most likely to thrive in the years to come.
