Solar Panels Can Be Removed and Reinstalled

Yes! Sometimes, an old roof, a remodel, or weather damage will require the removal and reinstallation of solar panels.

How Do I Remove My Own Solar Panels?

It is not recommended that you remove and reinstall your solar panels without professional help. This can be a difficult process if you don’t have the right tools or knowledge. You may even lose your warranty if you attempt to remove and reinstall solar panels yourself.

How Does Removing and Reinstalling Solar Panels Work?

We remove the panels, conduits, and racking during this process. Before repairing or replacing the roof, our service technicians will safely and professionally remove these elements. Efficient Home Services will reinstall these elements after you have completed your roof repair or replacement.

What Factors Should I Consider When Removing and Reinstalling Solar Panels?

Before you select a company to remove and reinstall solar panels, there are several important details to take into consideration. Here are some of the most important things to consider:


SunPower customers are required to have their solar panels handled by an authorized SunPower dealer. Otherwise, the warranty is voided. We are happy to offer a service quote for customers who may have their solar system installed by another installer and/or use panels other than SunPower.

Cost to Remove and Reinstall Solar Panels

Efficient Home Services can help you understand all your options, regardless of whether you are paying out of pocket or through an insurance claim.


You should only hire companies with the necessary experience and expertise. Licensed solar companies know how to handle each component of the solar system.

Beware of scams. Roofers or contractors may claim to be able to remove and reinstall solar panels. However, there are some potential pitfalls:

Warranty Invalidation: This may invalidate your warranty. Solar components can be expensive, and the customer is responsible for any damage caused by an unqualified, inexperienced crew.

Incorrect Electrical Work: Most general contractors do not have the skills to ensure that electrical work is completed correctly and that your system functions as intended.

Electrical Hazards: Lack of knowledge about solar systems can create electrical hazards that could lead to costly repairs or fire risks.
