Solar Panels - Which Sikaflex?
So I've got all the components and when the weather gets better I'll be fitting my solar panels.
I'm a little unsure as to which Sikaflex to use to stick the panel support brackets to the roof? My panels are large 200w and I have two, I have 6 support brackets for each panel, 1 for each corner and two for centre of each of the long sides.
As the panels are quite heavy, what's the best way to stop the Sikaflex being squashed out from underneath the brackets? Would a few matchsticks do? They'd create a gap of about 2mm between the base of the support bracket and the roof. This space would be taken up by the Sikaflex of course.
Any tips gratefully received :)
