A roof replacement is the best time to install solar.
• With solar panels from GAF, your roof can produce clean electricity at a cost that’s lower than your utility company. Solar can even pay for itself AND your new roof when you calculate monthly electric bill savings and government incentives.
• GAF’s solar panels are integrated into your roof deck and system, allowing for superior water-shedding capabilities.
• Roofing by Curry is GAF Solar Elite Contractor, so your new shingle roof with integrated DecoTech™ solar will be covered under the same industry-leading warranty.

A beautiful and affordable alternative to back-mounted solar systems
Standard back-mounted solar panels are installed above your roofing shingles using brackets. This leads to a clunky design that does not function well with rain or your shingles. The GAF DecoTech™ System is a low profile solar system that directly integrates with your roof. The result is a sleek and beautiful solar system designed with your shingles in mind — at a price you can afford.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT DECOTECH™ SOLAR SYSTEMS
DOES THE DECOTECH™ SYSTEM PRODUCE AS MUCH ELECTRICITY AS A RACK-MOUNTED SYSTEM?
The DecoTech™ System uses best-in-class standard modules, which allows it to produce the equivalent amount of electricity when compared to typical rack-mounted systems.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE DECOTECH™ SYSTEM?

HOW BIG WILL MY DECOTECH™ SYSTEM BE?

AM I STILL ELIGIBLE FOR THE INCENTIVES AND TAX REBATES THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO RACK MOUNTED SYSTEMS?
It is best to check with your tax advisor and local utility company to see what solar incentives are available in your area.
WHAT MAINTENANCE IS THERE WITH THE DECOTECH™ SYSTEM?
The DecoTech™ System normally requires no maintenance. In certain dry climates, DecoTech™panels may need to be hosed down occasionally for optimal performance.
WHAT HAPPENS TO SOLAR PANELS WHEN IT’S CLOUDY OR RAINING?
Solar panels will still work even when the light is reflected or partially blocked by clouds. Regular rain will actually help to keep your panels operating efficiently by washing away any dust or dirt.
WILL I SAVE MONEY ON MY ELECTRICITY BILL?
Actual electricity savings will depend on your energy usage, location, utility company, effects of tiered pricing, electricity pricing regulations, surcharges, availability of incentives in your area, and other variables.
