Calling all installers, contractors and DIYers!

Exposed-fastened (EF) roofing covers a lot of territory – from agricultural and industrial buildings to commercial and residential properties. Sometimes called through-fastened, screw-fastened and face-fastened, EF roofing is a popular choice thanks to its reasonable price and long lifespan.

When you mount solar modules, snow retention, rooftop utilities or ancillaries to an EF roof, it can raise a lot of questions. For example, you might be concerned about:

  • Weatherproofing.
  • The best place on the roof to mount the attachment system.
  • Choosing the right bracket.
  • How to protect your roof.



Whether your roof is trapezoidal-ribbed or corrugated panels, you may have questions you want answered.
