Vlog: The Problem With Cone-Style Solar Roof Mounts

Quick Mount PV’s Elevated Water Seal technology stands above the competition. Some competing mounts feature raised cones to help divert rainwater, however they fail to cap off and seal the cone.  In heavy rains, excessive water can flow into L-foot cavity and make its way to the roof penetration.

Our L-Mount is the most cost-effective waterproof solar roof mount on the market and features our patented Elevated Water Seal Technology.

The Next Generation Home

We’ve been working with nextgenhometv.com on their web series, First to the Future Home, featuring TV star and carpenter, Ty Pennington. The series covers the design, build and reveal of a truly next generation home, showcasing what it takes to make a house energy efficient, weather resistant, healthy and smart. As you might imagine, rooftop solar was an important aspect of this project.

We were honored to be included in the series and on the roof. Our QBase Composition Mount was installed on a sustainable and 100% recyclable Decra metal shingle roof during the SolarCity installation episode (episode 25). And just for fun, our first ever TV commercial is at the end of the latest episode (episode 28). Also, If you are interested in the Decra install, make your way to episode 18. The home will also include an AET solar thermal system, which they discuss in episode 24. Check it out, the episodes are short (less than 5 minutes) and it’s really amazing to see the latest innovations in smart, energy efficient home products, from foundation to rooftop. Enjoy!

Solar Installation Time Lapse Video

Today we wanted to share with you a time lapsed solar installation video made by our friends over at Sun Valley Solar Solutions, an installation company out of Chandler, Arizona. This 7.85 kW PV system features our Quick Hook product and 24 SunPower modules and a SunPower inverter. Using Quick Hooks for rooftop solar installations on tile can speed up installation time and has a great aesthetic look.
