Mount a Pole on Your Roof
Pole mounting brackets are an essential part of any roofing system. They provide a way to secure the roofing membrane around the perimeter of the roof, which protects the edge from wind uplift and other weather damage. Most pole mounts are installed after the roof has been completed and the membrane has been applied. For this reason, it’s important to use high-quality brackets that have been tested and approved for use with your particular roofing system.
