When it comes to roof repairs and new roofs, more competitors go solar

Roof repairs
Roof repairs could change with more solar in the mix.

In roof repairs and replacements, more and more companies are at least experimenting with new solar materials.

The latest entrant in the high-stakes market is Japanese manufacturer Solar Frontier K.K., according to Bloomberg.

The company’s CEO, Atsuhiko Hirano, said Solar Frontier is talking with partners and hopes to get into the market in early 2019.

“Our solar panels will be something that can substitute the functions of building materials currently in use so that customers can reduce overall cost,” Hirano told Bloomberg.

Other competitors include such high-profile newcomers as Tesla. The company better known for electric cars plans to combine solar roofs with wall-mounted batteries.

While Tesla and some others are newcomers to materials for roof repairs and installations, GAF, the largest roofing materials manufacturer in North America, is introducing its own materials. According to Greentech Media:

For GAF, the rooftop solar boom represented a possible market disruption for the old-fashioned roofing business, but one that could be additive rather than destructive. GAF redoubled its efforts starting around 2008, and after several rounds of refinement, launched the DecoTech product in January. Installations started in April.
