THE LATEST IN ROOFING
What are Solar Roof Tiles?
Solar Roof Tiles are a relatively new technology designed to look like ordinary shingles roofs on your rooftop. They protect your roof and have the same durability and thermal insulation as regular shingles while obtaining the sun’s solar energy to generate power for your house.
SANGOBUILD Solar Roof Tiles have two types of sizes, and will produce between 35 and 87 watts of energy, depending on the sizes of solar roof tiles. Solar roof tiles are easy to install and just like ordinary shingles, they are designed to withstand rain, wind, and hail. They can be a great energy-efficient roofing option for your home.
Solar Roof Tiles vs Solar Panels
To install solar roof tiles or install traditional solar panels on your roof? Here are a few advantages and disadvantages to consider beforehand.

Disadvantages: 1. Sometimes be less energy efficient than regular solar panels, you will need a particular roof slope with high sunlight exposure, 2. Traditional solar panels can also produce more energy per watt compared with the cost of solar installation.
How Much Do Solar Roof Tiles?
The average cost to install solar roof shingles is $165 to $210 per square meter for a home.
