For solar installers who are most familiar with composite shingles or tile roofs, encountering metal roofs can be challenging.
In addition to many different types of metals, there are different metal roofing systems.
Haixing steel group said that if the structure has an upright seam roof, the solar installation is slightly easier. The panel mount is clamped to the seam without penetration.
However, trapezoidal and corrugated metal roofs typically require direct attachment to the roof structure. The contour of the corrugated roof is not sufficient to support the mounting system, so the roof attachment needs to penetrate the roofing material and attach to the structural members.
In addition, flashing can’t be slid underneath, so waterproofing is especially important.
