Insurance and Roofing Contractor Coordination
We ensure a fast, comprehensive and painless solution to your complicated insurance process.
Once your insurance company has issued you a scope of loss for your re-roofing project, there will be an amount allotted for the removal and reinstallation of your solar panels. At Vanguard, we utilize our own in-house estimating team which creates bids and works directly with your insurance company to approve our scope of work pertaining to the solar panels themselves. We have never had one of bids denied because of our reputation with insurance companies and depth of knowledge within them. We are also Tesla certified, which means your warranty with them will not be affected by our scope of work. Most importantly, as we work directly with insurance, none of our clients ever come out of pocket for our removal and reinstallation projects!
Once insurance has approved our scope of work for the solar removal and reinstallation, we will coordinate with your roofing contractor for the removal of your solar panels. If you have not selected a roofing contractor at the time of your inquiry regarding solar, we can help you navigate from the hundreds of local roofing partners we have worked with over the years.
Dispatch and Removal (48 Hour Dispatch Time and Diagnostics)
After we coordinate with your roofing contractor, one of our NABCEP Certified PV Installation crews will arrive for the removal of your solar panels within 48 hours. Our team will run diagnostics on your system’s inverter to analyze your solar installation’s integrity prior to it’s removal. Proper system diagnostics allows us to repair any faults and process any potential manufacturer’s warranty claims you may have.
Our crew will then remove all of the mounting hardware, electrical wiring, and panels and store them at a designated location of your choosing on your property. This process generally takes anywhere from 3-6 hours depending on the size of your system.
Once the new roof has been put up and passes inspection, our crew will promptly return to your property with a redesigned layout of your system’s array to reinstall the mounting hardware, wiring, and panels so they produce energy in the most efficient way possible. Our crews will wear the proper protection needed to uphold the integrity of your new roof and proceed to reinstall the system. This generally takes 3-6 hours depending on the size of your system.
Critterguard: The Finishing Touch
Vanguard can then provide protective Critterguard mesh around your panels that will properly protect your system from animals and debris in order to prevent wires from being damaged and keep your system producing at optimum capacity.
