How Long Does a Tesla Solar Roof Installation Take?

Share this Article:

When looking into installing a Tesla Solar Roof, it’s natural to want to know more about the process and how it involves you, the client. We’ve gathered some more specific information that you might be inquiring about during the process of the Tesla Solar Roof.


Switching to Solar Roof


A common question we get about Solar Roof is how long the process from ordering to installation of the Solar Roof is. There isn’t a fixed timeline due to varying local permitting and utility timelines, but a general window is typically one month to six months depending on the location of your roof. As far as what work is required for installation also depends on your roof. Tesla Solar Roof can be installed on most roofs; however, some roofs are not eligible for that type of construction, and our roof inspector will determine the eligibility of your roof. If your roof does not pass the criteria for a Solar Roof, we will let you know at the end of the inspection and can talk about additional solar options.

Please note: Roofing repairs, replacement or addition of gutters, skylights, or vents are not included in the cost of Tesla Solar Roof.



When Installation Begins


When installation does begin, we do require that someone 18 years or older be home for at least the first two hours to allow access; additional site access might be required as the installation progress continues. We will always let you know and coordinate with you to determine access to the needed areas.



Installation Time-Frame


The installation crew typically needs five to seven business days to complete the installation for smaller, less steep roofs, and 14-28 days for much larger roofs. Of course, time-frames always vary. We will, however, always keep you updated with the schedule so there are no surprises.






As with all construction projects, price will vary due to the size, complexity, and steepness of your roof. One thing to note is that the price of a Tesla Solar Roof is comparable to high-end roofing products such as wood, slate, and metal. By adding in the cost of the solar system, the prices are closely on par with each other. An added benefit of a Tesla Solar Roof is that there are no penetrations that will be drilled into your roof. The roof itself is replaced with the solar system, so it is unlike any other traditional roofing!
