How to Install Solar Panels Mounting Rails on Roof for Solar Panels
All right, we're getting ready to mount our rails up here, and I've got some blocks of wood. Pressure treated lumber already mounted, from one of my last solar projects, so we'll reuse those when we can. This roof is over the laundry room, and it's facing almost directly south, which is perfect for a solar exposure. Not too difficult for that top end. Let's get some down at the bottom now. Drill a couple of holes here, so we've got a couple more blocks of wood, just to rise this up off the roof. Give a.
How to Install Solar Panels Sealing Roof Holes With Caulk
As we mount our rails to the roof we'll be penetrating the shingles and we'll want to seal up all our holes. If you can picture this, here's our bolt, it's going to go through our rail and screw directly down to the roof. Picture this as a roof. Of course, this will penetrate into a stud inside the roof cavity and pull this entire thing sturdy. In that case we'll be using Henry's 209 is an asphalt based caulking that goes into standard caulking gun. Of course, very easy to use and that will allow us to fill the holes and prevent.
Rain from getting into the house once our panels are mounted. So this method of securing the holes is one of the most simple. Or you can find better methods of flashing if you're having it professionally done, you're installer may come with copper flashing to give you a nice finished look around the edges of your panels. Sometimes they mount them on tile rooves which use a slightly different mounting system, drilling holes in the tile and that takes a little extra time. If you're unsure which form of caulking will work best on your.
Dean up on the roof, we have a fascinating little invention of Dean's here, putting a silicone pad underneath the foot of a roof bracing there, and then we drill through the holes, so it's immediately sealed, and there we go. We're putting up this chimney support here, and those are the two roof legs, we've already done this one over here. It's a little hard to see, It's small, but over here Dean is just, and then we put wood screws right there into the plywood, and the big thick silicone pad.
Woodbridge Roof Repair 70'979200 Roof Twins
Hi, my name's Ken and I'm from RoofTwins. We have two different home owners requesting a roof repair in Woodbridge. They both have identical problems with their brackets being fastened directly into the valley here and also here. So neither one of these items are in use, the satellite dish or the solar panel and all the hardware. None of that is in use so it could all be taken off the roof. So let's start on this one first, what needs to be done. This mount and the brackets they need to come off. Once they're off we can replace the.
Shingles underneath where the mount and this bracket here was removed and apply a sealant to the underside of the shingles so that the shingles never blow off. Now with this mount here, this is a much more serious problem because the mount is actually fastened into the aluminum open valley. So what we need to do is replace the valley from this point all the way up to the peak of the roof. And once the valley is removed, we have to remove all the shingles and the felt paper down to the existing wood. When that's.
Completed we then adhere an ice and water shield to the wood surface, install the new valley, and then reshingle both sides of the valley up to the peak of the roof and that will take care of this problem here. Now this side here is a little bit more involved. You have one, two, three, four brackets that have to be removed. You have these two tubes that have to be removed. Now with these two tubes the wood is cut underneath both of the tubes and about a foot around on both sides. So we have to.
Install new plywood, install new felt paper, then reshingle these two areas here. And once the brackets here are removed, all those brackets, we have to replace those shingles as well and apply a sealant to the underside of the shingles so that they never blow off. Now with this, this is the biggest problem of all and we have to remove the shingle on both sides of the valley all the way up to the peak of the roof, down to the bare wood, then install ice and water shield to the wood.
Surface, then reshingle both sides of the valley, doing the closedcut style valley system. Once that's completed, we then apply a sealant to the underside of every single shingle that we've touched, so that they're fully adhered and that we don't have to worry about the shingles ever blowing off. If you're looking for a roof repair estimate and you live in Woodbridge, please go to our site Roof Twins and we would be very happy to come by and give you a free estimate. Thank you very much for watching the tutorial.
Solar PV Tile Roof
Good morning and welcome to one of Ecoelectric's solar information specials. Today were looking at rooftop installations considerations. This is a tile system installed onto what is a north west face over here 3.54kW and over here on the north east we have another 2.5 or so kW. This system is just under 7kW in total and we will just have a look at how it has been installed on the roof. You can see that its using a fairly standard rail mount system. I believe this is an old version of Grace rail its certainly not Antai which.
Were using at the moment. Its fairly typical of a tile mount system you can see that the tile brackets here come out from underneath the tile and as you can see on this roof the tile sits quite nicely on the bracket without any grinding of the tile itself. We dont reccommend that the tile are ground in unless you see a decent gap on the edge of your tile. If this gap is too high then sometimes they do need to be gound. You can also see here the.
Earthing attachment to the rail. Stainless steel all 100 compliant. The interesting thing though is that even stainless steel you can still see slight corrosion on the edge which gives you an idea of what can happen if people use non stainless galvanised or even worse zinc plated type earthing arrangements they simply wont last. Here is a typical cable penetration its a decktie. As you can see it hasnt been screwed to the tile underneath that is a 25mm penetration. The decktie has literally been put down with sealent.
In this case it looks like a clear sealent has been used. We actually reccommend colored sealant as it has a higher tensile rating when it bonds to the tile. Were using grey Sikaflex. Under here you can see a decent gap there are a lot of plastic cable ties which are no longer to spec but when this system was installed that was perfectly ok. Its is a fairly neat job there are no cables hanging on the roof and there is a good airgap there for heat to move out from underneath the solar system. You can also see that the.
C21Z Standing Sean Clamp On Snow Fence installed on a standing seam metal roof
TRA Snow and Sun Drop a chalk line on the roof 12 from the eave. Count number of Clamps per 10' length and slide them onto the pipe. If at the start or end of a 50' max fence section place a Collar on the inside of the firstlast Clamp. Position Clamps on chalk line ensuring the teeth of the Clamps are on the open side of the seam. Locate Clamps on the seams and tighten the Clamps just enough to prevent movement. Ensure the Clamps are true to the chalk line and using a calibrated torque wrench torque.
All bolts 30 ftlbs. The Pipe should not extend more than 6 past the last Clamp. Upon terminating if necessary, cut off access Pipe and seal cut end with weather proof sealant to prevent corrosion. Slide the Collar to fit snugly against the first or last Clamp and torque set screw to approx. 15 ftlbs. Install End Caps into Pipe ends, Caps should compression fit inside ends. Tap with a hammer and remove any metal burrs or excess paint with metal file if necessary. At every 10' section install a union to align and hold fence together.
Customer Review Tutorial 1 Tanya American Solar Direct
When my husband and I chose to go solar the first thing we thought about was the environment and going green we know that our kids are gonna be around for a long time and it's the least we can do for them using American solar direct ended up being a very good decision for my family we felt very confident that that was the decision that we wanted to make and the company we wanted to go with from the beginning until the end my in home analysis with the consultant was a very good experience we thought that he was very.
Polite and it was nice to get some information from somebody who actually knew what they were talking about with every process with the phone calls it went great with the installation team it went clean we had a question we called up we got an answer everything that had to be taken care of through the city they took care of everything by the time the installation team had finished and I was looking at the results I could honestly tell you that we were very impressed after the system has been.
Energy Saving Tips
So we go through a checklist and see if we can squeeze our energy savings even further. And in doing our review we have actually discovered some very important items that have somehow slipped through the net. Our gas boosted solar hot water system is made a huge difference in the cost of heating water, but what are we doing with the water that is heated for free by the sun. In our review we discovered that neither the dishwasher or the washing machine are setup correctly. We have also discovered that the dishwasher is connected to the cold tap and it heats.
The water with an electrical element. Not very clever when we have got all the hot water heated for free by the sun. It'll need a small amount of plumbing to fix it but it will be well worth while. The washing machine needs to be reprogrammed to ensure it uses the free hot water and doesn't heat its own. These things might seem obvious but it's worth checking to make sure your appliances are programmed and connected correctly. These small changes will save an additional $240 per year so they are defiantly worth.
