Installing solar panels on your roof or on the ground near your home is a great way to reduce both your environmental footprint and your utility bill. Solar panels can also increase the resale value of your home because future owners will enjoy lower energy costs. Many solar panel systems have a lifespan of 20-30 years or more, which means you continue to enjoy savings long after the cost has been paid off. By saving on installation costs, you can reach that point even faster.

While many companies provide solar panel installation, it is possible to install some systems on your own. Whether you are an avid DIYer or just want to save a little cash, these home solar panels are designed to be installed by people with basic construction skills.

Materials, styles, and colors all play a role in the overall look and feel of your home.

Different types of siding also require varying levels of maintenance and durability. At Adair Homes, we use low-maintenance, long-lasting materials, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding and weather-resistant cedar shingles, to create the look you desire without the hassle of cracking, bending, rusting, or fading that can occur with other types of siding materials.
