Solar panels are a popular method of achieving energy conservation, but it’s vital to carry out calculations to check your roof can support the weight of the panels before you make your commitment to the environment. Philip Goacher Associates can produce solar panel reports to outline the suitability of solar panels for your property. We have extensive experience of checking the additional loading from photovoltaic (solar) panels and, where necessary, we can design appropriate strengthening solutions to ensure your roof can support solar panels.
We will visit the property, take necessary measurements and then carry out structural calculations of the loading capacity of the roof, providing a solar panel report with conclusions and recommendations. We can then provide the designs and details of any strengthening works, if required, and work as Contract Administrators on the project to ensure it runs smoothly and get you on the road to energy efficiency.

They are now well on their way to being an energy-efficient household and reaping the rewards of their eco-friendly roof.
