If you’ve ever installed a solar array on a tile roof, you know that there are systems available that’ll make your time on the roof faster and easier. EcoFasten Solar’s Tile Flashing System was the only solution like it until fairly recently, when a few other mounting manufacturers started following suit. It’s a great idea for a number of reasons – maybe one of the most import reasons being that it replaces a complete tile so there’s no drilling, no grinding and no cutting, since the flashing acts as a replacement tile for materials you just know will get broken.
We also all know that tile hooks are used for mounting solar on tile roofs. Enter our engineering department and the idea that we should offer a flashing designed specifically for use with 3rd party tile hooks. We named it the Tile Hook Flashing because, well, that’s what it is.
The flashing’s purpose is the same as the flashing on the Tile Flashing System – to replace a complete tile. It just makes sense to manufacture a product that will make so many installer’s jobs that much easier. The malleable aluminum flashing is available in either sierra tan (as shown above), or mill finish, and in 3 profile options for flat, W and S tile roofing.
So just how easy is it to install? Take a look at the installation video below and see what we mean.
Easy, right? I mean, it’s not even just easy, it’s beyond easy. In fact, it almost seems like something’s missing, like we skipped a step. It’s just too easy.
And that’s the beauty of it.
Because, let’s be honest, the less time you need to spend on the roof, the better.
