quite like ours!

Located in Raleigh, NC, we specialize in providing commercial, residential, and nonprofits with roofing and energy efficiency solutions across America. We provide our clients with high-quality, reasonably priced roofing and solar energy systems installed by the most experienced installers in the industry.

Our mission is to show the highest form of excellence in service rendered by our company at all times. We strive to treat all of our customers with the utmost respect & dignity.

Work Ethic

Our reputation and reliability starts with the strong work ethic of our employees. We value the dedication and contributions of our team through recognition and respect.

Quality of Life

By putting focus on our employees’ quality of life, we can provide our customers with a higher quality of work. 

We worked with Covenant Solar & Roofing last Fall to get our roof top solar panels installed. It was a great experience from start to finish and we are thrilled with the outcome. The entire team was knowledgeable, patient and pleasant to deal with. Everyone exhibited the highest integrity and attention to detail in all communications and interactions from the initial evaluation and scoping to installation and subsequent follow up. I’m also thrilled to report that thanks to the federal energy credit we were able to claim for 2017 and the rebate we recently received from Duke Energy, that we’ve recovered approximately 50% of the total cost of the project. Covenant kept the Duke rebate moving forward for us and we’re very grateful. With that cost recovery and the energy we are now generating ourselves, this system will pay for itself in just a few years time.

NC Solar Company

How does the solar panel installation process work?

It all starts with a site assessment to make sure your property is a good candidate for solar power. After signing an installation agreement, we move onto system design and inspections.
