One of the primary challenges is properly lagging the racking into the structure.
The SunEarth RexRack Adjustable Landscape Kit is a nice off the shelf solution that works well when rafter tie-in is not an issue. This would generally be a south facing roof, where the panels are square to the roof. The brackets can be placed where the rafters already are, and then the panels mounted up.
This is where you start to run into problems with the off the shelf solutions, as the mounting feet are relatively small. This does not allow much latitude in the rafter location. The problems are further compounded if you have a South East or South West roof and the panels will not be square to the structure. Picking up rafters becomes difficult or impossible and blocking the lags is not the most desireable solution.
This allows the racking to be located in a desireable location on the roof, and then drilled onsite for lagging into the rafters.
The racking is custom made to your specification. Just tell is the roof pitch and orientation, and the desired panel pitch and orientation, and we can figure out the rest.
