I recently purchased a solar panel kit from .solardirect. In their install documentation they say for a clay tile roof to mount the panel supports directly to the tiles. Meaning use a masonary bit to drill pilot holes into the tile and use a concrete screw to secure it on the tile.
I have talked with a few people, one being a proffesional roofer, and they all thought that wasn't a great idea. Factors I am concerend about are wind and water leaking through the tiles in he attic.
On the above site their are pics of installs onto clay tile roofs that look very clean and seem to be attached directly to the tiles. My question is, has anyone installed panels in this manner, and howd it turn out? Or what are other options are there for installing on a clay tile roof.
