18 Mar My roof isn’t that steep. Why does your crew spend time setting up in harnesses?
Our first job onsite is setting up the roof anchor. From then on, installers know that they need to be roped up anytime they are on the roof. This goes for ALL roofs, flat to steep. Working with safety gear on and managing ropes does slow down the install a bit, but all of our crews get to go home at the end of the day.
Other companies may not want to deal with “unnecessary” safety gear on homes that may seem to have an easy low sloped roof.
Also, it’s a state requirement, and solar installers can incur steep fines if an inspector sees them without this equipment.
Things You Should Know Before You Go Solar
We’ve compiled some of the questions we have received over the years. We think people should ask a solar contractor some tough questions when they are considering installing solar. We want you to have the information you need so that you can make the decision that is best for you. Customers who are educated about solar make our industry stronger.
