My roof is about 12 years old. I am expecting it be changed in next 5 year or so. If I install the solar panels now, will it cause any issues when the roof will be changed.

Solar panel systems last for 25 to 35 years, so if you anticipate replacing your roof in the next 5 years or so, we recommend doing it before you install your solar panels. It can be costly to take the panels off later down the line. Solar panels can actually extend the life of your roof by protecting it from weather and sunlight, so by replacing your roof now, you're doing yourself a favor down the line!
