How are solar panels installed on a Deck House roof so that there are no leaks? BCB builders in MA have a photograph of what happens when installation is done incorrectly. Leaks develop and the place where the lug bolts attach to the ceiling decking rot.

Hi Jon,

Installers in our network who we have consulted with about this said that properly installed standard flashing will do the job - provided, of course, that the building and roof themselves have been approved by a structural engineer.

Is this the photo you were referring to?
