Nagle first discovered Roof Tech products in 2018. “We use RT-MINI for all our residential installations that use conventional rail mounting systems,” he explained. “The MINI is ideal for steep-pitched roofs and any job where we need to install multiple arrays.” The RT-MINI II is engineered to withstand wind speeds up to 180mph and up to 90 PSF of ground snow, making it a great choice for cold weather environments like Michigan.

What installers need to know about the impact of Ice dams and how to protect the roof. Because roofing is always exposed to the elements, winter weather varies with heating and cooling cycles that cause snow and ice to melt on sunny days and re-freeze at night, creating ice dams on the eaves and in roof “valleys”. Mike Dunlap explained that building codes require roofers to install a special ice and water shield in these areas to protect against ice dams.

Mark Hagerty, president and founder of Michigan Solar Solutions (MSS), first encountered Roof Tech products at a tradeshow in Minnesota in 2015. Not long after, he decided to use RT-MINI to mount the solar array on his company’s office in Riverdale, Michigan. “By using RT-MINI, we were able to install a skirt around the array to create a streamlined look,” he said. “It was so esthetically appealing people didn’t even realize we had solar installed on the roof.”
