Adding solar to your building’s rooftop
The variety of rooftops found on commercial buildings require very specific mounting systems to work well. Every project is approved by a Structural Engineer for proper weight, wind and snow loads.
Composite and Built-up Rooftops
A very common rooftop material in the northeast. Typically rolled out in 4′ to 12′ widths. We generally use an engineered ballasted racking system with no or very few roof penetrations.
Standing Seam Metal
These are excellent for attaching commercial solar arrays because rooftop penetrations are not required to secure the array into place. We use a seam clamp to mechanically fasten the metal roofing to the solar array.
Modern Membrane Roofing
A single ply membrane made of a variety of different materials. These single ply membranes are excellent for rooftop solar arrays because they are long-lasting and easy to repair and maintain over time. We generally use an engineered ballasted racking system with no or very few roof penetrations.
Rock and Gravel Rooftops
These can be a challenge. In many locations the rocks will need to be removed to allow for the solar array mounting system to make positive contact with the roof surface. If the rocks are not moved, they will be pushed into the membrane and provide locations for water settling and intrusion.
