Detail Solar Services and Specifics
Detail Solar Products
Detail Solar handles the installation of solar panel systems for residential and commercial properties. They offer On-Grid, Off-Grid, and Hybrid systems to suit your individual needs. They also provide services to upgrade existing solar arrays, installation of battery back-ups, and will even ‘detach and reset’ your solar panels in the event that other construction is needed on the property. Finally, they offer a range of maintenance and repair services, regardless of whether they installed your panels, and will even assist with warranty claims. A fair few reviewers report them going above and beyond as well, offering to clean skylights and fix roof leaks!
By far the most important service Detail Solar offers is speed; they boast incredibly quick installation times, with many reviews saying their jobs took mere hours. Their free estimates also come quickly, and many in the area report that Detail Solar’s team was at their property the very next day to perform the installation. Even with a turnaround this fast, the quality of service remains exceptional, with only a single complaint about the longevity of their system lobbied against them.
Detail Solar Costs
According to their website, Detail Solar has a motto; “Quality and Affordability.” This motto has informed the company’s entire ethos, with them promising fair and competitive prices that outdo larger solar companies. If their customers are to be believed, then Detail Solar absolutely delivers on this promise. In addition to being well-priced and affordable, Detail Solar offers its customers the perfect solar solution for their individual needs, and strives to provide a good, quality product.
Detail Solar’s commercial and residential services qualify for State Tax Credits, covering 25% of the total system cost, or up to $35,000. Residential services also qualify for Federal Tax Credits, covering 26% of the total cost. However, Detail Solar recommends that you consult your Tax Advisor regarding your individual situation and income.
Detail Solar Legitimacy
Although not accredited by the Better Business Bureau, Detail Solar does have a verified license to install solar panels, as confirmed by multiple sources. In addition, they boast NABCEP certification as photovoltaic professionals with almost fifteen years’ worth of solar installation experience between them.
Detail Solar Maintenance
Detail Solar’s biggest claim to fame is its quick and efficient repair services. With many customers citing next-day appointments and solutions within hours, it’s easy to see why they come so highly recommended. Detail Solar offers repairs not just for their own systems, but for any installed solar panels, with many customers choosing them for maintenance over the companies they originally purchased their systems from.
The SolarEmpower View
Despite their small size, Detail Solar LLC has an incredible reputation for being efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. Affordable prices and a wealth of experience make them a fantastic go-to for first-time solar buyers. But it’s their maintenance and upgrade services that have won them so many repeat customers – fixing the mistakes and faults left by other, larger companies. Aside from their admittedly sub-par web design, there’s little to complain about.
