Solar Panels On Rubber Roof

I've searched and subscribed to numerous threads but have not found answers to this question? How are you mounting your RIGID solar panels to rubber roofs?

Thanks in advance,
Rich J.

Aluminum brackets, lag screws, and Dicor.

Thank you for the replies. I was debating between lag screws or well nuts. Seems I'll be using lag screws.

Thanks again,
Rich J.

Just getting ready to install 2 panels myself. I will use Stainless steel 3/4 " screws into z brackets. I will use 2 brackets on each side and one on each end = 6 brackets on each panel. Self leveling horizontal sealant .

Roof prep cleaning needed.

Hi,

I just left the Dicor roof presentation at the Rally.

He recommended using a pad of butyl tape between solar brackets and the roof, before tightening everything down and covering with Dicor.

FWIW.

I agree and have already applied the butyl tape to the bottom of the bracmet but forgot to mention.
