Installers of solar panels and solar cells on the roofs of commercial and residential buildings are known as solar installers. Particularly in this day and age of green energy, locating professionally qualified solar installers or solar roofers, as they are becoming more widely called, is challenging. This is due to the fact that they must possess a mixture of two skills: that of a typical roofer, as well as that of a solar electrician.

Retrofitting and integrated solar installations are the two styles of solar installations that are currently available on the market. When a solar panel or panels are retrofitted to an existing roof, it is known as retrofitting. When solar cells and panels are integrated into the roofs of new buildings, the term “integrated” is used.
Since retrofitting a solar panel is not difficult, the skills of the solar technician are less important. To put it plainly, this involves adding one or more panels to an existing roof and running wires from the roof to the battery banks. This could easily be accomplished by a regular roofer who then defers to an electrician for the wiring.
Since retrofitted solar panels are bulky and more vulnerable to the elements such as wind, rain, and snow, many people consider them unsightly, and in certain areas, they can actually depreciate the value of a house. This is why integrated solar roofing is gaining popularity at a rapid pace. The sides of these panels are almost flush with the rest of the roofline since they are built into the roof. In this way, the solar panels are less exposed to the harsher elements and, as a result, are more attractive to the eye, though they are still visible on your roof.
Solar cell manufacturers have devised the ingenious solar shingles as a solution to this issue. Photovoltaic solar cells are built into these very smart, very sophisticated solar shingles. These solar shingles are practically undetectable because they have the same look, scale, shape, and colour as standard asphalt shingles. In this manner, a solar installer can convert an entire roof into one large solar panel while maintaining the appearance of a standard roof (well, from a distance anyway). The demand for professional solar installers/roofers has increased as the popularity of this form of roof has grown.
