Florida-based Baldwin Roofing Co. is among the first roofing companies in the Jacksonville and Tampa Bay areas to offer roof-integrated solar for homeowners from GAF Energy. With a GAF Energy solar roof installed by Baldwin, Jacksonville and Tampa Bay area residents can go solar and take advantage of top notch roofing expertise plus a warranty backed by North America’s largest roofing manufacturer.
“Our customers consistently ask us about solar when replacing their roofs. With GAF Energy’s solar roof product, there’s now a solar roofing system that we’re confident in offering to our customers–it’s a tremendous product,” said Spencer Baldwin of Baldwin Roofing Company. “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.”
“It makes perfect sense to go solar than when you’re replacing your roof,” said Keally DeWitt, Vice President at GAF Energy. “Homeowner demand is on the rise for clean energy that can help reduce energy costs, which is why we’re excited to partner with the excellent team at Baldwin as one of our first contractors to offer GAF Energy’s solar systems in Jacksonville and Tampa Bay.”
The GAF Energy solar system couples 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.
