PV Array Removal and Refitting

Roof mounted solar arrays (a group of solar panels) are commonly used in both the domestic and commercial markets and that is fine until you have an issue requiring access under the panels.

Solar arrays constructed on the roof of your property may need to be removed to have any works completed on the roof structure, this would include repairs to resolve leaks, new work like the installation of skylights, flu’s & vents, or a completely new roof.

Most roofers and roofing companies will not remove & refit the panels as it requires some expertise, regulation compliance and test equipment of which roofers are not familiar with. It can then be a headache trying to find a solar service supplier that will work with your roofer to structure a joint effort.

We take the pain out of this process, by coordinating with your roofer/roofing company we ensure the panels are removed ahead of the roofing work, then refitted straight after the roof work is completed, ensuring you are without solar generation for the shortest time possible.

The exact process is as follows.

Depending on the type of roof and work being carried out the price varies due to the time required to make good. The removal can be completed in around half a day (up to 16 PV panels) regardless of roof type etc. The refitting process can take up to 2 days, slate roofs take longer due to having to cut many angles while installing the anchor points to the rafters. If you have many panels scattered around different roof areas facing different angles and are utilising micro inverters the cost will be slightly higher due to the extra time required, we can advise you what is required at a bespoke level.

Access may also be required be it in the form of static scaffolding or a mobile scaffold tower. Obviously if you are having roof work done already, the access method will already be in place, so there would be no extra costs there.

 

Up to 8 PV panels – Prices start from £600

Scott designed and carried out a PV cell installation recently. The quote was competitive and the correspondence quick and concise. The fitting was arranged within a week, once the specification was agreed. On site, assisted by Mike, they were helpful and friendly and despite a difficult routing for the cable they came up with a successful solution. The end result is a very tidy, externally & internally, solar fit for the property. Great job and communication throughout, overall I'm very satisfied with their service and would recommend them.

Thank you for your outstanding service we received with regards to our solar panels which needed a new inverter. In next to no time, the problem was identified, a replacement ordered, delivered and fitted and the solar panels immediately started to record our readings. I have 100% confidence in recommending Bolido!

Very refreshing to get such a thorough and decent service. My company, a solar installations company needed technical assistance on-site for two projects. We also needed help with some of our own IT systems particularly with providing secure internet and network access between us and our clients, primarily for sharing power generation data but also increasingly alongside power usage data. Scott and his team were great with our clients and we just left to it. They were also quick to understand exactly what we wanted to achieve. They carried out all of the work, quickly, cleanly and with the minimum of fuss. We are now in a great position network and IT wise, moving forward we are confident in being able to service bigger clients with however sophisticated a network solution they might require. Highly recommend this company.
