What are Solar Shingles?
There are two ways to think of solar shingles – small solar panels or ordinary shingles that provide solar energy to your home. Regardless of which way you want to look at solar shingles, you’re not wrong.
Solar shingles look and operate in much the same way that ordinary roof shingles do. They’re similar in size, shape, and appearance, but they can harness energy from the sun and convert it to electrical energy for your home or business.
Solar shingles are made of the same type of durable glass used for solar panels. This glass contains special photovoltaic cells, also used in solar panels, and gives your solar shingles the ability to produce electricity. There are many different types and sizes of solar roof shingles, which are capable of producing an average of between 13 and 71 watts of energy.
While GAF solar shingles have the incredible ability to generate electricity, they can still do everything that a normal shingle would. GAF solar shingles are waterproof, resistant to the elements, immune to rain and hale, and won’t get damaged by heavy winds, hail, or debris. The glass that GAF solar shingles are made of is highly durable and heavy-duty.
Benefits of Solar Roof Shingles
While installing solar shingles on your home or business has plenty of benefits, let’s look at three of the main advantages.
Traditional forms of electrical production are expensive and can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars per month, depending on the size of your home or business. However, energy from solar shingles is 100% affordable and renewable.
Protection for Your Home
As we said before, solar shingles can do everything traditional shingles do. They’re durable, water-proof, wind-resistant, and can withstand hail or snow damage.
One of the main reasons that people like solar shingles is that they blend in with the look of your home. Solar panels are bulky and invasive and take up valuable space on your roof or property. Solar shingles, however, blend in with your home and don’t take up any extra space. Contact us to schedule an appointment if you’re ready to reap the benefits of solar shingles!
Services Provided by Smith Ramirez
While solar shingles look like ordinary roofing shingles, installing them is more complex and requires special training that we all have here at Smith Ramirez.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar Shingles
How much do solar shingles cost?
On average, solar shingles cost between 20 and 25 per square foot. The total cost of your project, however, will depend on the size of your roof and how many solar shingles you require.
Are solar shingles cheaper than solar panels?
All in all, solar shingles are a bit more expensive than solar panels. However, when you factor in the fact that you use solar shingles in place of ordinary shingles and that there are incentives and insurance benefits for installing solar shingles, the cost difference is much less.
How many solar shingles do I need?
The amount of solar shingles you need depends on the size of your home and how much power you want to produce. You can use solar shingles as the sole source of electricity for your home, or you can use them as a supplemental source.

Q. IS A SOLAR ROOF MORE EXPENSIVE THAN A BASIC ROOF REPLACEMENT?
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.
Q. ARE RACK SOLAR SYSTEMS CHEAPER THAN SOLAR SHINGLES?
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.
Q. WHAT PART OF THE SOLAR ROOF IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE 30% TAX CREDIT?
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.
Q. WHAT SOLAR ROOFING SYSTEM CAN I COMPARE THE GAF SOLAR SHINGLE ROOF TO?
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.
Q. WHAT IS A SOLAR PAYBACK PERIOD?
A solar payback period is the time it takes for property owners who install solar panels to recover their initial investment through electricity savings.
Q. ARE THERE ANY INCENTIVES TO ADD SOLAR TO MY WESTCHESTER COUNTY HOME?
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.
Q. HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO SAVE? WHAT’S THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT?
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.
Q. WILL THE VALUE OF MY HOME INCREASE?
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.
Q. WHAT KIND OF WARRANTY DOES A SOLAR ROOF COME WITH?
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 BW Roofing Solar, you can purchase an enhanced warranty and solar addendum to cover both the roof and solar under the same warranty.
Q. HOW DOES THE GAF TIMBERLINE SOLAR SHINGLE DIFFER FROM THE TESLA SOLAR ROOF?
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.
