We had solar installed in 2016 and due to a reoccurring leak over our patio and our original installer needing 8 months to get to our house, we had NYSM complete the removal and reinstallation for us. The crew arrived early, worked very quickly without taking a break, and seemed to be really honest and nice. They left the roof and property in clean condition and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again if I’m in need of a solar service provider near me.

Matt and his team were very professional and affordable. The crew showed up to our house in Westchester in masks and put back up the system they had taken down three weeks ago. They had us wait until our new roof had two heavy rains on it to be sure it didn’t leak before they reinstalled it which I think is very wise. If you’re looking for solar service provider, I would definitely recommend them.

Great solar service help. The guys worked quickly and efficiently. It took them the full day to remove our 55 panel system and they finished right before it started raining. When they came back to complete the reinstallation, which took two days, they put the array back right where it was and even blew the leaves out of our gutters. Good price and good communications for a solar service provider.

Matt from NY Solar Maintenance and Repair was lovely to deal with in every way. He was recommended by the company that acquired the firm that installed our solar array a number of years ago. In the past year pigeons took roost under the array creating a mess on our property, and a nuisance to our neighbors. Matt was great to communicate with during our estimate process; his was the 6th we received for installation of a critter guard and removal of the pigeons.. From his depth of experience he was able to give us great information &  advice, then the best price, and ultimately a beautiful job professionally & promptly executed. This was a project that we would much preferred to avoid, but Matt made it better than we could have expected. I recommend Matt wholeheartedly and would contact him again if we ever had need of service related to our solar array.

Can you remove solar panels?

Yes, you can remove your solar panels from your roof at any time, however, the process requires the implementation of proper safety measures to prevent a home injury, or any permanent damange to the solar panels. If your solar panels need cleaning or repairs, solar panels are unmounted and unplugged from the connecting power wires. For a full solar panel removal, the solar circuit must be disconnected from the main line.

Does removing solar panels damage your roof?

Each solar panel weighs around 40 pounds, the glass is fragile and so is the backsheet (it can get scratched and cause thermal issues). Because of their weight and their fragile nature, many things can go wrong with a solar removal; dust build-up, low-quality workmanship, or faulty wiring can cause damage to yourself or your roof during the removal process. When looking for solar removal profesionals, focus on a solar removal company that’s fully licensed and insured for optimal results.

How much does it cost to remove solar panels?
