Which roof coverings are compatible with solar roof panels?

Roof-integrated solar panels are compatible with almost all types of roof covering - including clay tiles, concrete tiles, cedar shingles and shakes and natural slate. Always check the specific products you are using to ensure compatibility.

As part of our complete roofing system, Marley SolarTile® roof-integrated photovoltaic panels are compatible with our entire range of roof products. This gives specifiers, contractors and installers a complete solution for solar tile installation on roofing projects.

Marley SolarTile® is also compatible with most other roof coverings, including those offered by our competitors, and it is suitable for installation on slate roofs. For a lower-cost alternative to natural slate, you may want to consider Duo Edgemere, an interlocking concrete tile that replicates the appearance of slate.
