Yes. Solar is more expensive than a basic roof replacement. The price of adding solar energy to your home will depend on many factors, the chief among them the size of your roof and how many solar shingles we can effectively capture energy from.
The short answer is yes, but it is important to note that the Timberline Solar ES™ Shingles we install are not in the same market as standard rack-mounted solar panels.
Our solar shingle roofs come with an industry-leading warranty and curb appeal to boot.
There is value in maintaining your home’s aesthetics from the curb and real money to be made at the time of resale.
The answer to this question depends on the type of solar roof you buy.
Our GAF Solar Roofing Shingle systems are truly integrated into your roof; thus, your entire roof replacement cost is eligible for the 30% TAX benefit.
Verses rack-mounted systems where only the rack mounts and panels themselves are eligible.
Our solar roofing system is best compared to the Tesla Solar Roof. Both systems are attractive to homeowners who value aesthetics and technology in equal measure.
Our GAF solar shingles are a true union between form and function.
Regarding price comparison, The Timberline Solar ES™ Shingles are 50% less upfront when compared to equally sized Tesla Solar Roof systems.
Both our customers and Tesla are looking for a solar solution that is less destructive to the roof and obtrusive to the eye than the older rack-mounted solar panels and better optimized for energy capture.
A solar payback period is the time it takes for property owners who install solar panels to recover their initial investment through electricity savings.
YES! And better still, New Yorkers enjoy some of the best solar incentives in the country!
On top of that, the solar Investment Tax Credit was recently increased to 30%; this removes about a third of the total cost of your new roof and solar shingle system.
In general, the more electricity you use, the more you can save by installing a solar power system.
A larger system will cost more upfront, but it will also offset a larger portion of your electricity bill, resulting in greater savings and a faster return on investment.
During our project planning and estimation process, we run various scenarios to give our customers a clear idea of the system’s total cost, including any available solar incentives and deductions offered by Westchester County and New York State.
We also work to provide projected savings and the return on investment for the system. This information helps homeowners make an informed decision about whether or not to invest in solar power.
Studies have shown that adding solar can boost the value of a home by several percentage points, equating to tens of thousands of dollars for the average home.
Solar roofing shingles are the only home improvement that adds value without adding extra taxes, thanks to the solar property tax abatement.
The Timberline Solar ES™ Shingles come with a limited warranty that covers 25 years against manufacturing defects that cause leaks, 15 years against wind damage caused by winds up to 130 mph, and 25 years for Solar Power Output.
This warranty does not require any registration or cost.
Additionally, when installed by a GAF Certified Contractor like B&W Roofing & Solar, you can purchase an enhanced warranty and solar addendum to cover both the roof and solar under the same warranty.

First, it is important to note that the GAF Timberline Solar Shingle system and the Tesla Solar Roof System promote ecologic sustainability. For that, both products are a step in the right direction toward a greener future for energy generation!
As for installation, both systems require the installation of a new roof rather than retrofitting an existing one. Unlike now outdated rack-mounted solar panels, GAF Solar Shingles and the Tesla Solar roof are integrated into the roofing system itself.
With the similarities out of the way, we can now look at how the two solar roofing systems differ significantly in several aspects.
To start, the installation process for the GAF Timberline Solar Shingle is surprisingly similar to that of a conventional asphalt roofing shingle, where our Westchester County-based roofing team is able to nail them down like any other roofing material allowing for a fast and clean install.
The entire installation process is completed within the same timeframe as a standard roof installation, which is a significant advantage. In addition, the GAF Timberline Solar system includes both regular asphalt shingles and solar energy shingles.
The ‘solar energy shingles’ provide the same protection and durability as traditional asphalt shingles, while solar shingles generate electricity from the sun’s rays to power your home. This combination of roofing materials provides aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency for your home.
On the other hand, the Tesla Roof involves the replacement of the entire roof with Tesla tiles, which can take several days to weeks to complete, depending on the complexity of the roof structure.
As with most things, if the roof is a very complex one with many valleys or awkward pitches, the cost of the roof will increase in turn.
