Who else besides Caddy sells the foam roof blocks with the strut inserted?

Cheers.

You could also take some wooden 4x4 blocks and ask the roofers to glue some vinyl to the bottom then put your own strut on them.

Some one has a stick down version. You pull the plastic off the block, and stick it in place. I believe it's rated for all flat roofs, rubber and tar.

There is no wieght. It's only one 3/4" pipe run around the perimeter to pick up building lights. The "maint man" for the apt complex put a weather tight bell box with romex connectors, and ran uf all over.

I might bid tar down PT 4x4 and one hole clamps.

They a cheap place to deal with.

I'd be tempted to use an idea I stole from 220/221, cut some PVC length wise into halves and tar those down and strap the run to that with one or 2 holes. That way there is no wood that will get all nasty and eventually rot out. Or use cinder blocks that works too.

I am not a big fan of the standard 4by4 with some glue slathard on it, but the prefab ones are expensive, on rooftops I usually put down a 4by4 every six feet or so with strut on the top.

I haven't seen any install here that was done with wood hold up over time. It gets sun baked and rots.

I bet, here to to a degree, although that hasn't stopped the company's I've worked for from having me do it, I've been forced to use 2" by 4"'s in the past.
