Roark Solar


Had two leaks in the pipe associated with the solar panels. They determined where the leaks were located and then repaired them by replacing the pipe with the leaks. Outstanding. I had called Harriman’s of Venice several days ago and had not been able to get them here to do the work even though they indicated that they would come. No telling when they would have finally gotten around to doing the work. I joined Angie’s List and then proceeded to find another company to repair the leaks assocated with my solar panels. I had a very pleasant conversation with Jim Rorark and explained the situation and asked him when he could come to my home and do the repairs. He indicated that he may be able to get someone get to my home today but would let me know. He carefully explained the potential costs and I provided him with information on my location, my contact details etc. Approximately 15 minutes after we had completed the initial phone call, he called back and told me that they would be able to come today between 11am and 12 noon. They arrived approximately 11:45am. They found the leaks, confirmed the repairs necessary and indicated the costs for repairs. I approved the cost and they proceeded to do the repairs. The repairmen were courteous, professional and knowledgeable in their understanding of the necessary repairs. The repairs were completed, I paid and they left. This was truly an outstanding experience. I would recommend them very highly. It is an absolute fact that Roark Solar will be the one to do my repair and/or installation work on solar panels in the future. It certainly will NOT be Harriman’s.

Installed solar panels on roof. Excellent work, in and out quickly and quietly. Further work responded to all warranty issues promptly.

Roark Solar just installed a solar pool heater for my husband and me. I called Jim two weeks ago and he was at my house the next day. Jim was so thorough in explaining the process. My husband and I thought we had done our homework on solar but shortly after Jim arrived, we realized that we did not know the process or what it would take. However, Jim got us up to speed quickly. After Jim left, we decided not to go with anyone else (we cancelled our next appointments). His knowledge, experience, and caring was all we needed. Eric came out the following week. He was so respectful, conscientious, clean, and kind. After he left, you would never know that we had anything done to our house other than the new panels on our roof. We believe he left it in better shape than how he found it.Thank you, Jim & Eric!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Solar panel heat for swimming pool and not tube. I have purchased 2 solar systems and they were done to perfection. I can heat my hot tub to over 100 degrees with only solar. I have recommended them to all my friends.

Roark Solar

Roark Solar installed solar heating for our pool. This included all the plumbing and solar panels and drain valves. The guys got here and explained what they were going do and got down to business. Later after they had been gone a few days we had to have them come back and redo some of the plumbing. There was no problem and everything was taken care of satisfaction from everyone. Would recommend this company to anyone!

Pool pump replaced. Mr. Roark immediately was back in touch after my inial call to Roark Solar. He diagnosed the problem(new pump needed for the pool) and performed the work promptly at a price that was in line with and lower than most other estimates I received. He is very experienced, knows his stuff and a straight shooter. I’d definitely use Roark Solar again.

Our 30 year old solar hot water system was acting strangely. Roark repaired it — several times, but it was not their fault. Some of the new parts they installed were defective from the manufacturer. They lost money on this job, but never complained. I offered to pay something additional, but they refused my offer. Nice, competent people. Pleasure to work with.

Solar panels on roof to heat pool and pool service equipment. Roark, called and was very responsive, came when he said he would and instructed us on use. His employees, were very courteous and helpful in understanding the process. They were excellent!

Roark Solar

Very knowledgeable. Diagnosed my problem over the phone saving me an expensive service call. Had called 2 other solar contractors in the last week. 1 never called back after leaving 2 messages. The other 1 said he would send someone in a few days but no one called for appointment after 1 week.

Jim, Eric and Ken replaced all pool equipment and added solar panels to system (pump heater filter salt cell and converter box). Everyone was informative and personal. The job went as planned and was on time. Everyone was knowledgeable.

Roark Solar

He fixed up the solar hot water and the solar for the pool. We had a local company install solar heating for our pool, then the following year we had solar panels installed to heat the water.  This job did not go well so we inquired with this company to find out what they did wrong.

Roark Solar


Installed variable speed pump and solar system for my pool. We chose Roark out of three estimates based on their knowledge of the product and their competitive price. Owner came to my house to give me an estimate. He was thorough and fully explained how it works and how work is performed. Installers were punctual, pleasant and very knowledgable. When the work was completed, they explained the operation in terms I could understand. I was very pleased with how they cleaned up, including construction debris that wasn’t even theirs. I would definitely recommend them.
