Solar Energy

Solar energy solutions are growing at an annual rate of 11% and residential and commercial applications are driving green energy solutions across the country. As a premier roofing and siding company, providing solar energy in Hampton Roads for our residential and commercial clients is a logical next step.


Our team has over 40 years of combined experience in the roofing and siding industry, making us an ideal fit for installing solar panels, solar shingles, or solar tiles on your roof. We can install a roof and solar energy system simultaneously to ensure a secure and leak-proof installation. We can also bundle the warranty of the roof and solar system into one, making a potential warranty claim down the road hassle-free.



Looking for an efficient and affordable solar solution? Look no further than solar panels. There are many benefits of solar energy, and solar roof panels can help you lower your utility bill, provide you with clean and renewable energy, and in some cases can even get you a tax credit.


At Custom Contracting, we rely on CertainTeed Solar’s Solstice® PV system in our solar panel installation in Hampton Roads. With some of the highest efficiency panels on the market today, CertainTeed Solar’s Solstice accelerates your return on investment, improving the already-financially sound decision to go solar.


Solar shingles use the same solar energy technology as solar panels, but rather than large panels, they are instead the same size and shape of an asphalt shingle. For those with a discerning eye, this might be the perfect solution for solar energy in Hampton Roads.


Here at Custom Contracting, we utilize CertainTeed’s The Apollo® II system, which is the pinnacle of energy production. Using 63-watt high-efficiency monocrystalline silicone solar cells to capture and convert the most energy per square foot, Apollo II also functions as a roof, generating clean energy while protecting your home from water intrusion.


While solar panels are built on top of an existing roof, solar tiles — which are somewhat smaller — can be integrated and used alongside traditional roofing material for a blended-in look.


Custom Contracting utilizes CertainTeed’s The Apollo Tile II system, which is a versatile solution for maximum power and aesthetics when installed as part of a new or existing tile roof. Designed to match the profile of flat concrete tiles, Apollo Tile II blends seamlessly into the roof plane for a clean look and protection from water intrusion.

Powerful Technology at the Heart of the Enphase System

Solar panels may be on top but it’s the inverter that does all the real work. Choosing the right inverter technology is the most critical decision you will make when choosing your preferred solar energy in Hampton Roads. At Custom Contracting, we utilize Enphase Micro inverters, which offer the most advanced inverter technology in the market — meaning higher production, greater reliability, and unmatched intelligence.
