Las Vegas and Henderson Wind Damaged Solar Systems

Every year, winds whip through Las Vegas and Henderson, potentially damaging solar pool heating systems. It is very important to have your solar pool heating system maintained to prevent wind damage.

Las Vegas “Power of 3” solar project by Suntrek Industries. Suntrek provided this homeowner with a custom-designed solar pool heating system, solar electric system and solar water heating system.

 

Here are a few helpful tips:

 

1. Have an annual check up by your solar energy company.

2. Make sure all your roof attachments are solid and secure.

3. If your system should be winterized to protect from freeze damage, have your solar collectors drained and your system turned off.

4. What condition is your roof in? Keep in mind that your solar system is attached to your roof and if your roof is in poor condition, the attachment system can be jeopardized.

5. If your roof needs to be replaced, coordinate the removal and re-installation of your solar pool system with your solar energy company.

Anatomy of A Roof Leak with a Solar System

This time of year roofs will leak. They do every year when the rainy season comes upon us. Roofs will leak with solar energy systems and without solar energy systems. As roofs age, they deteriorate and this process opens up the home for water to enter.

A brand new solar energy system should never be installed on a failing roof.

 

Here some simple investigative approach’s to solving these problems:

 

1. What is the age of the roof? Any roof older than 15 years will show signs of degradation. You must ask questions to be a great investigator. How old is the roof? Have you had problems in the past? When was the last time you had your roof flashing’s serviced by a roofing company?

2. What keeps water from entering the home is the condition of the roofing paper under the actual roofing shingles, tiles, shakes, etc. Roofing paper that is degrading will begin to allow water to seep into a home.

3. Flashing’s around chimneys, vents, and skylights are also a major point of entry. These flashings will have a sealant around the edges that is no longer holding up to the environmental conditions and water will now get into the home. Flashing’s need serviced with new sealant.

4. The best time to determine where the point of entry is into the home is when it is raining and coming in the home. Do NOT wait for the rain to stop.

5. The point of entry of rain into the home can show up in the home in a very different location. Water can come in through the chimney flashing but then travel down a beam and enter in the hallway through a light fixture.

6. Get in the attic with a flash light and look for the points of entry. You will then see water travel to the destination point in the home. If its an open beam sealing, locate the highest point the water is entering the home. Then go back up on the roof and look for suspect points of entry.

7. Carry a tarp with you, buckets, towels, Henry’s roof sealant, and Rainbuster 12000.

8. Always take photos or video.

9. Broken tiles are a problem, but in most cases are not the cause of a leak coming in the home. If water enters in through a broken tile, the roofing paper below should shed this water.
