NEW Solar Carports- Because today we can use a very thin-film flexible solar modules that can be installed over low-load-capacity roofs that prove challenging for conventional crystalline solar panels and rack systems because the carport roofs can’t support the added weight. They where not designed and built to add any addition weight. ​Today’s flexible modules use a factory-applied butyl-based self-adhesive. Installed with this simple peel-and-stick adhesive, flexible modules become an integrated part of the roof system and have the same wind uplift and seismic performance characteristics of the roof system itself. We no longer have to deal with solar racks to assemble, ballast to carry and place, or leak-causing roof penetrations, Todays peel-and-stick thin-film modules are the simplest, fastest and lowest labor cost rooftop solar solution.

A 20 x 24 ft attached Cable roof style Red Cedar carport addition with a comp shingled roof to match the existing house structure. The inside ceilings where finished out and closed in. The exposed wood has treated and  been weather sealed.

FYI before you bye!  Within the Steel world the lower the gauge number the thicker the materials are so 18ga steel is thinner product then a 12ga steel product. But within the Aluminum world it is just the opponent and the higher the gauge the thicker the material are so a .032 aluminum is a thicker building material then just a .019 aluminum product. Be fully aware of what your purchasing because there are dealers out here that sale some real thin products that will get dinged up in just a small hail stone storm.
