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.

Tell us a little bit about SolarRoofHook.com and QuickScrews?
Quickscrews was founded by Greg Wiener, our current CEO who started the company in his garage in 1987. Today Quickscrews has become the nation’s largest supplier of woodworking, furniture and cabinet related fasteners.
Where did the idea for SolarRoofHook.com come from?
The idea was born out of the 2008 recession. It was at that time that Deborah Wiener, wife of the founder, initially suggested bringing products to the Solar Industry. As experts in wood fastening, it was a reasonable leap for us to enter the world of solar mounting. We worked closely with one of the country’s largest installers, Solar Universe, to develop a product that specifically helped them install solar onto curved and flat tile roofs without having to penetrate the tile. Given our decades of experience with manufacturing and importing, we were able to design a product and get it in their hands within 60 days. We launched SolarRoofHook.com that day.
What differentiates you from other companies in the industry?
Are your products UL Listed? What certifications do your products have?
Many homeowners and Solar Installers are very concerned about roof penetrations, what does SolarroofHook.com do to alleviate those concerns?
When it comes to mounting solar on Asphalt Roofs, which have the greatest concern about roof leaks, we have developed the simplest 100% waterproof system in the market today. Our Patented QuickBolt and its system have been tested under extreme conditions, so extreme the Company offers a 100% No Leak guarantee for 25 years. Product testing and spec sheets are downloadable from our website.
Give us an idea on the installation process, what tools are required and the time it takes?
All of our products can be installed in less than one minute. Installers simply need to have our product, sealant, a grinder, and a drill. 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.
What might be next for SolarRoofHook.com? Do you have more products in the pipeline?
While many companies are focusing on more expensive rail-less designs, we are expanding our line of cost-effective products that offer the customer maximum flexibility. We are currently working on a line for metal roofing, for inquiries you can contact our VP of Sales Rick Gentry at email@example.com.
