The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent (US 2013 – 8,372,226)to SolarPower Restoration System based on the company's proprietary SolarSeal Technologies™, titled "Elastomeric waterproofing and weatherproofing photovoltaic finishing method and system" The patent filed by company founder Michael Gumm and part of the SolarSeal Technology portfolio of patents and pending patents combines high performance elastomeric roof coatings with the latest flexible thin film photovoltaics, creating new sustainable and renewable solar powered roof surface.


SolarSeal Technologies solves the common problem of photovoltaic modules service life outlasting existing roof systems the PV modules are installed on.

SolarSeal Technologies installs a photovoltaic array directly over any existing roof system and synchronizes the roof service life with the longer performance life of the photovoltaic modules.

The SolarSeal PV Roof System™ applies thin film or crystalline photovoltaics directly to either new or existing asphalt built-up smooth and granule surfaced 90-pound cap sheet roofing, including SBS and APP modified bitumen roof systems.

SolarSeal PV Roof Systems™ works over all single-ply roof membranes (EPDM, PVC, TPO, and Hypalon) and is the only universal solution designed to apply thin film and crystalline photovoltaics directly onto any roof substrate, creating a monolithic warrantable waterproof photovoltaic roof surface.

SolarPower Restoration Systems has developed this technology and will license it for roofing applications.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
