Customer Question
I had solar panels...

I had solar panels installed 9 years ago. Last year there was leaking via the fixed supports. This required having a contractor inspect and solve the problem. This year just under 22 months from the corrections leaking reoccurred. I have negotiated with the contractor to fix the work but he declines based on the fact that he was not the original installer. Since he undertook the last work I believe that he should take responsibility to fix the leaking. The subject is solar panels fixed buy brackets to the roof struts.

Solar roof system installed 9 years ago. Leaking occurred 12 months ago. Contractor Lazer Electric agreed to fix problem. Worked after that. Recent rain and leaked again less than 12 months. Lazer refuse to fix the problem as they were not original installers.
