If the roof on the existing home is sound, any type of roof material can suppor t solar panels, and Dority takes great care in locating the pan- els to consider the most sun exposure as well as aesthetics. Panels can actually be located in roof shingles, if desired. The products used in the company showroom a nd out in the field are also as green as possible.
