Designed to be adaptable, Quick Mount PV's 18 x 18-inch flashing installs on East Coast style shake roofs (7.5-inch exposure over skip sheeting) and West Coast (10-inch exposure over solid sheeting) alike. The shake roof flashing slides quickly into place with no need to modify the shake to force a fit. Just a simple, watertight seal every time.
Quick Mount PV's Classic Shake Mounts are constructed of corrosion resistant material, including .050 aluminum flashing and stainless steel hardware, which last at least three times longer than galvanized parts. Our Classic Shake Mounts bolt to any racking system with an L-foot interface, and integrate directly with Prosolar and Unistrut systems, as well.

In fact, whatever you need to fasten to a shake roof – HVAC equipment, antennas, satellite dishes – use Quick Mount PV to secure and protect every roof installation you put your name on.
