CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elite Roof & Solar, the premier roof and solar company in the Carolinas, today announced their selection as an exclusive solar installer for GAF Energy’s award-winning Timberline Solar™ shingle. Elite Roof & Solar is one of less than 50 contractors in the country and one of only 4 contractors in the Carolinas that have been selected to help launch GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar™ shingle.
Timberline Solar™ is the only roof system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials. This new system incorporates the world’s first nailable solar shingle, the Timberline Solar Energy Shingle™ (ES), which will be assembled domestically at GAF Energy’s manufacturing and R&D facility in San Jose, California—creating American jobs and delivering a revolutionary product with the potential to drive a seismic shift in residential clean energy adoption. The Timberline Solar ES™ has received three awards from the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including its highest honor, the Best of Innovation award, for “Smart Cities.” The product was also named an Innovation Award honoree in both the “Smart Cities” and “Smart Home” categories.
Elite Roof & Solar was selected by GAF Energy as an exclusive provider due to Elite’s superior workmanship, excellent customer service, focus on innovation, and proven track record as a roofing contractor over the last 10+ years in the Carolinas. Elite was already recognized among the best roofing companies in the country though its certification as a GAF Master Elite Contractor and as a GAF President’s Club award winner for the prior four consecutive years. Elite Roof & Solar is now among an even more exclusive group of certified Timberline Solar installers.
“For a long time, we have believed strongly that the roofing industry was moving towards a convergence with solar,” said Mick Koster, president of Elite Roof & Solar. “The new relationship between Elite Roof & Solar and GAF Energy presents a tremendous opportunity for our customers to have the best of all worlds – an innovative, premium solar roof system, installed by our world-class crews, at an affordable price, and with an outstanding warranty. When homeowners are ready to replace their existing roofs, finally they can have both a new roof and solar energy through one contractor, with one warranty, and with greater peace of mind. We’ve essentially eliminated all the inconvenience, cost, and risk of traditional photovoltaic solar panels installed on the top of existing roofs.”
“Solar roofs are the future of clean energy, and Timberline Solar is the game-changing innovation that will get us there,” said Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy. “At GAF Energy, we have the capacity to scale this technology like no one else through GAF, bringing an integrated solar product that is weatherproof, affordable, and design-minded to homeowners across the country. We’re excited to lead the next generation of clean energy adoption.”
