Lakeland, Florida’s High Tower Roofing became the first roofing company in its area to offer roof-integrated solar from GAF Energy for homeowners. High Tower customers can now install an energy-generating solar roof system and decrease their reliance on utility power.
The GAF Energy solar system couples innovative, attractive, and affordable solar technology with fast, easy installation. Designed to provide a good-looking, low-profile alternative to typical rack-mounted solar panels – which are typically drilled through the roof’s shingles – GAF Energy solar integrates directly with the roofing system and requires no penetration of the roofing membrane. GAF Energy uses premium solar panels to optimize power output with a matching color profile to the roof to maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to reduce the risk of leaks and animal intrusion.
“Solar is the future here in the Sunshine State. With GAF Energy, there’s now a solar roofing system that we’re confident in. GAF has been the leader in roofing for decades, so we trust GAF Energy’s approach to residential solar for our customers–it’s a fantastic product,” said Robbie Sanger, Owner of High Tower Roofing. “A solar roof can help pay for an entirely new roof over time by helping reduce homeowners’ monthly electric bills; it’s a choice that makes good economic sense for many customers.”
“There’s no better time to go solar than when you’re getting a new roof,” said Keally DeWitt, Vice President at GAF Energy. “Homeowner demand is on the rise for renewable home and building solutions that can also reduce energy costs, which is why we’re excited to partner with the excellent team at High Tower Roofing to be the first contractor to offer GAF Energy’s solar systems in the Lakeland area.”
