Solar Bear is a solar company founded in 2015 by local Floridian, Blake Ambrester. The leadership team grew to four and the company took off, growing exponentially since. The company provides roofing and insulation services in addition to solar, which aims to help make homes more energy-efficient.
Since its founding in 2015, Solar Bear has offered excellent roofing services. The lists includes the following:
The combination of roofing services with solar installation can be especially beneficial for customers who need a new roof and want to go solar. Solar Bear can accomplish both tasks at once and eliminate the need to find two separate companies to do the job. Solar Bear’s roofing services are for both residential homes and commercial businesses.
Solar Bear offers a full-treatment spray foam insulation service. Foam is injected into walls where gaps in insulation exist and cause heat or cool air leakage. In some cases, homes that do this treatment can save up to 50 percent on their electricity bill each month.
Using insulation ensures a more efficient energy system all year round. Few solar companies in the industry even consider insulation as part of energy conservation, making Solar Bear a leader in the field. The foam treatment is warrantied for the lifetime of the building, regardless of the owner.
Solar Bear services most areas in Florida. You can find a complete list of covered areas on Solar Bear's website.
Solar Bear outsources its solar panel installations to third parties in the state of Florida. Sometimes this can cause a lack of communication between the two companies and lead to other problems. However, Solar Bear uses only certified home energy specialists, hopefully eliminating the risks associated with outsourcing the installation.
Solar Bear’s website claims to offer the longest warranties in the industry, however, no information on these warranties is mentioned on the website. Customers should be sure to check with the company on warranty length and specifications before choosing to go solar.
