We are introducing a few new products this year. For Asphalt Shingle Roofs, we have a new Low Profile QuickBOLT that simplifies the installation process by removing the height adjustable nature of the original QuickBOLT. We have a new hook for Stone Coated Steel Roofs, as more installers have found customer opportunities with this type of roof. Visit us at Intersolar Booth #9645

Talking Intersolar with Jared Wiener, SolarRoofHook

Jared Wiener | SolarRoofHook

Your company will be exhibiting at Intersolar, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

Intersolar is an important event for SolarRoofHook to meet with our customers to learn how we can continue to support their needs. It is the best chance to get our Sales team in front of Distributors and Installers, and our products into the hands of customers. We make sure to focus on gaining feedback on how to improve mounting hardware for the solar industry.

 

What can a visitor to your booth expect to see this year?

We have found that once installers touch, handle, and feel our roof attachments, they become believers. This year we will be demonstrating how our products work by attaching them to mock roofs. Installers will also be able to speak directly with our Sales team to learn more about new products. Our booth will feature SolarRoofHook products on mock roofs for the most popular residential roof types in America, including Asphalt Shingle, Tile, Metal, and Stone Coated Steel roofs.  Visit us at Intersolar Booth #9645

 

Any new products you will be introducing?

We are introducing a few new products this year. For Asphalt Shingle Roofs, we have a new Low Profile QuickBOLT that simplifies the installation process by removing the height adjustable nature of the original QuickBOLT. We have a new hook for Stone Coated Steel Roofs, as more installers have found customer opportunities with this type of roof. Lastly, we are displaying our new line of non-penetrating mounting hardware for Metal roofs, called SolarGripz.

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?

We are looking forward to seeing our partners in the industry, including our advertising and marketing vendors. We also make sure to keep an eye on the competition to understand gaps in the industry, so we can provide our customers with what they need for a profitable installation business.

 

Intersolar / EES has many educational sessions, is your company involved in any of them this year?  

We will be presenting our NABCEP-certified course called “Making Solar More Affordable Through Innovation.” The course highlights ways for solar installers to earn more profit by lowering their mounting hardware and labor costs. We also run through our product lines to educate installers on the technical features that allow SolarRoofHook products to save installers time on the roof. For example, by using MicroFlashing instead of traditional aluminum flashing products, installers are able to save 50% on hardware costs and cut installation time by 67%, without sacrificing strength or security.

This course will take place on Thursday, July 13th, from 10:15am to 12:15am in Workshop Room 1 (9030).

 

When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

Our goal is to continue working to make solar more affordable in this country, which we hope to do by lowering the cost of mounting hardware for installers. Even with the uncertainty surrounding the financial backing of some larger companies in the industry, we expect even more visitors to our booth this year as we enter a decade of supplying mounting hardware to the solar industry.  We offer stability to the industry and will show our customers why SolarRoofHook expects to be around for the long haul.

Interview with Michael Wiener of SolarRoofHook.com
In general, the installer just removes the roof piece, locates the rafters, drills pilot holes, fastens the product to the rafter, properly seals the penetration, and grinds the tile where the mount is located before placing the roof piece back over or around the mount.
