Having Roof Work Done? 

We Can Temporarily Remove and Reinstall Your Solar Panels.

As a local solar company, we know that Missouri and Illinois roofs can sustain damage from wind, hail, sun exposure, and age. In fact, Solar is designed to withstand golf-ball sized hail traveling up to 50 miles per hour, offering a layer of roof protection. Exposed roof may still get damaged. That’s why we provide “Remove & Replace” services, or R&R for short.

Our team can temporarily remove your solar panels when your roof needs maintenance and reinstall them once the work is complete. Please note that if your roof is over 15 years old, we recommend replacing it before installing solar panels. 

Have a Stranded Array?

We Can Help.
Not all solar companies stick around long enough to service their installations, leaving some homeowners and businesses stranded. In these circumstances, we can do our best to help. Our experienced team can typically service most arrays within our Missouri and Illinois service area, though we do prioritize our customers first.
 
If you’re an Illinois Shines program participant whose Approved Vendor and/or Designee has gone out of business, is unable to meet program requirements, or has been suspended from the program, reach out. StraightUp Solar is a registered Illinois Shines Approved Designee and meets the program’s strict eligibility requirements.
 
We were founded in 2006 and plan to be around long enough to take care of our residential and commercial customers throughout the lifespan of their solar PV system. It’s important to choose a trusted, local company who’s in it for the long haul. 

Missouri & Illinois Solar Service Troubleshooting

Are you experiencing some simple issues with your existing solar array? It happens – sometimes, you may need to reboot your inverter or reset the monitoring display. We’ve compiled some guidance below to help you quickly resolve everyday issues yourself. Visit our service troubleshooting page for a full list of resources.

We recommend resetting your system annually in a process often called the “Power Cycle.” Power Cycling involves turning your solar components off and back on. These steps can resolve many issues from your online monitoring portal. It’s important to note that Power Cycling will never harm your solar system.

Access specific troubleshooting instructions for your inverter brand below: 

Animals can cause significant damage to roof-mounted solar arrays by chewing wires and digging under them. Removing trees or vegetation near your roof can limit their access. If you notice any animal activity, please contact us for service. Warranties don’t cover animal damage, but your homeowner’s insurance may cover it.

We recommend installing Critter Guard, a heavily-coated black wire mesh around your array’s perimeter, to prevent animal damage. Although Critter Guard doesn’t 100% guarantee against animal damage, it can effectively deter nesting birds, squirrels, and other roof rodents. Contact our service department for a quote on Critter Guard.

You can clean ground-mounted solar arrays yourself using a soft sponge or mop with cool water. We recommend only using minimal and targeted dish soap to remove tree sap from the panels if necessary. However, be sure to rinse the panels thoroughly if you utilize detergent. Do not wash the undersides of your panels.

For your safety, StraightUp Solar doesn’t recommend accessing your roof for any reason, including panel cleaning. We can provide an estimate upon request if you want your panels professionally cleaned. We will customize the price to your system, depending on the number of panels installed, your roof’s slope and height, and whether your system requires specialized lifts and equipment.  

Please note that we can only perform panel cleaning in winter at temperatures above 42 degrees Fahrenheit. Submit a Service Request if interested, and we will happily provide a quote for you.
