Roofing Services

GB-Sol works with roofing contractors and solar installers to provide you with a full roof solution.

Sometimes it’s easier to work with one company you can trust. Trying to coordinate a solar installer and a roofing contractor to work together on your new roof can be difficult. Delays on one part can have a knock on effect with the other making you feel stuck in the middle. Taking this hassle out of the process, GB-Sol can provide a contract for both the solar PV installation and the rest of the required roofing works. This way, you know both products will work together and there’s only one warranty to be concerned with. This can be a great peace of mind to avoid headaches between multiple contractors.

If you’re interested in this service, please let us know and we can confirm eligibility in your area.

Local School Learns About PV Slate Installation

This week, GB-Sol had a special visit from pupils at Hawthorn High School. Working with Newydd Housing Association, they are designing a digital bench at a Pontypridd Church. It will provide a sheltered place for the homeless to sleep, and include USB charging facilities powered by solar.

The students brought along their roof frame and GB-Sol’s PV Product Manager, Lloyd Symonds, taught the school pupils how to install the PV Slates. These were fixed to the South elevation with natural slates on the opposite pitch.

A special charging pack was designed including two USB ports and an LED light. This will be connected to a battery to allow use of the electricity outside of daylight hours.

GB-Sol work on all sorts of unique projects, if you’d like our can help with yours, please get in touch.

This week, GB-Sol succeeded in manufacturing the largest module in its 20 year solar manufacturing history.

GB-Sol are always keen to take on any challenge and producing a panel bigger than ever before was especially interesting. Each panel measuring 3.1m x 1.4m was composed of two layers of 6mm glass. They weighed over 120kg and required specialist equipment to transport around the factory.

Each one contained 90 solar PV cells providing 425Wp.

If you have any unusual solar PV requirements, GB-Sol are here to come up with a solution. Please get in touch today.
