Trusted Saskatoon directory team brag about Suncatcher Solar your Saskatoon Solar & renewable power experts

Trusted Saskatoon Directory Team are thrilled to brag about Suncatcher Solar your Trusted Saskatoon Solar specialists featured in our Saskatoon Renovations inside & outside category.

We are very pleased to wish them a warm and sunny welcome to the Trusted Saskatoon community of locally accountable businesses run with integrity. Suncatcher Solar is owned and operated by a mother and son team, Angelika Ortlepp and her son, Rohan Campbell.

In 2003, Angelica (Angie) followed her passion for engineering, and from this passion an idea stemmed, she and her family wanted to live off the grid! These were the humble beginnings of Sun Catcher Solar as they built their first home using the energy of the sun for warmth and power along with other renewable energy. There could be no one more qualified to own and operate such a business, with Anglie, a professional engineer with a degree in Engineering Physics and an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering. For many years she taught labs for the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at the University of Saskatchewan. Angie introduced renewable energy to the curriculum and she supervised design projects on solar energy. The Ortlepp's “living lab” home provided them with firsthand knowledge and real life experiences which assisted greatly towards the developing of their business. They literally live what they sell and install.

Over the years, Suncatcher Solar has completed an extensive list of wind and solar projects ranging from custom solar home design to renewable energy systems, both grid-tied and off-grid. We highly recommend visiting their website to see examples of their previous work for yourself! 

  

When we were speaking to their customer as part of the Unique Trusted verification process  we consistently heard great things. So we thought we'd share some of their first hand experience with them! Crystal said she found them to be a great company to work with, very helpful and very knowledgeable. She experienced no problems & they communicated honestly and were responsive to any questions or concerns. For more testimonials and to see all they do, please check out their listing in the Saskatoon Renovation category!

 

 

 

Suncatcher Solar are your TRUSTED SASKATOON SOLAR PANEL EXPERTS and well deserving of the THUMBS UP!

A message from Janice Braden. " Yes, I have been terribly impressed by everyone who is coming in to work. It's almost like everyone feels a responsibility to prove what good workmanship should be - I hear snips of conversations about doing it right, double and triple checking, making sure things will last for years. Everything that is going in, layer by layer, is solid and of excellent quality and I couldn't be happier or more impressed. And yes, the ridiculous potlight is gone (Arlen from Age Of Electric said none of them was actually hooked to a switch anywhere..oh my!). "

 
 

Trusted Saskatoon Roofers and Exterior Experts share a tip on snow removal from roofs


Trusted Saskatoon Roofers  and Saskatoon exterior experts! 

Here they share a tip on snow removal from roofs:

Saskatoon weather can seem a bit unpredictable. One minute it’s sunshine and warm weather. Next thing you know we’re hit with a snowstorm. Don’t let the occasional spring-like day fool you — we are still in the middle of winter. And when you consider that insurance claims for damages related to winter storms can run into the thousands, knowing how to deal with ice and snow on your roof is just smart.

 

                                  Let’s hope this never happens in Saskatoon!!

 

Enough snow on the wrong roof could cause it to collapse. The funny thing is that you want your roof to have snow. If the snow doesn’t melt, your attic insulation is doing its job. But if there’s too much snow and ice the roof can collapse.

Roofers can still shingle and install eavestroughs in the winter, we would clean off the snow (hey you get a free snow removal!) and then continue to install a new roof and eavestroughs! This is a great way to avoid any leaks that may occur in the spring.
