Classic Shake Mount
The QuickMount® Classic Shake Mount uses patented QBlock® Elevated Water Seal Technology® to form the easiest, fastest, most universally code-compliant and watertight mount available for solar panel installation on cedar shake roofs. The oversized 18 x 18-inch flashing accommodates the large exposure of shake roofing.
Available in aluminum mill and bronze (custom) anodized finishes.
For installing solar concurrently with the construction of a new shake roof, use our QBase® Metal, Shake & Slate Mount.

Designed to be adaptable, the 18 x 18-inch flashing installs on East Coast style shake roofs (7.5-inch exposure over skip sheeting) and West Coast (10-inch exposure over solid sheeting) alike. The shake roof flashing slides quickly into place with no need to modify the shake to force a fit. Just a simple, watertight seal every time.
Classic Shake Mounts are constructed of corrosion resistant material, including .050 aluminum flashing and stainless steel hardware, which last at least three times longer than galvanized parts. Our Classic Shake Mounts bolt to any racking system with an L-foot interface, and integrate directly with Prosolar and Unistrut systems, as well.
PV, Solar Water Heating, and More
The Classic Shake Mount is the logical choice not only for solar PV installation, but also for rooftop solar water heating systems. In fact, whatever you need to fasten to a shake roof – HVAC equipment, antennas, satellite dishes – use it to secure and protect every roof installation you put your name on.
