Roof penetrations are potentially a tremendous liability for solar installers, and tile roofs are notoriously difficult for PV installations. In this presentation we discuss how to successfully install on tile roofs, follow important roofing best practices to maintain roof warranties, protect the roof, and reduce installer liability. We will review several methods and products for mounting PV on a tile roof, including our new Tile Replacement Mount, Quick Hook, and QBase Universal Tile Mount.
