    Remounting a pool solar panel on the roof with hurricane fasteners

    Getting a new roof and received a quote from a solar company to remove and remount my pool solar panels. Talk about sticker shock! One of their selling points was that they would install hurricane straps when remounting.

    Naturally, a DIY solution came to mind. It seems to me that as long as I mark where the rafters are, I can easily remount my solar panel system. I'm not designing anything, just re-screwing, re-gluing PVC, etc. It's a pretty simple system (i.e. no level changes) - just 5 panels attached in a series. I plan on taking lots of pictures before I begin the process.

    Any idea where I'd be able to find Fafco (the solar panel company) fasteners that are hurricane rated? I wonder if they even exist and that these "hurricane straps" are in-house creations.

    Any advice / warnings / feedback about DIY remount in Florida?

    Thanks!!!

    Call FAFCO. (800) 994-7652

    Frankly I would leave this to the installer but beat him up on price.
