The QBase Shake & Slate Mount is a dual-purpose base-and-post style solar mounting system offering superior strength and waterproofing for both wood shake and slate shingle roofs. The oversized 18x18-inch flashing accommodates the large exposure of both types of roofing.

For Shake Roofs

The QBase Shake & Slate Mount is designed to smoothly fit into the workflow between the trades while installing a solar array during the construction of a new shake roof. For retrofitting solar onto an existing shake roof, use our Classic Shake Mount.
