Permanent Roof Jacks


I have a homeowner that is getting a new polymer tile roof and wants to leave roof jacks or better yet just the roof jack anchors on the roof so normal maintenance can be done at a later time. Roof is 12/12 pitch.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance


Hire an actual roofer that knows things.


Why would you leave the old roof jacks? Why would you leave just the bases?

HO does not make sense. Stepping over dollars to pick up dimes.


Better find some stainless jacks.


The homeowner is concerned that periodic attaching and removal of the roof jacks to perform maintenance would cause more headaches than it should.
Thats why I asked the professionals on here for their opinion.


We specialize in slate and tile, there is rarely any maintenance that we set jacks up for. Most of the time anything that needs to be done can be done by a chicken ladder, only time you run into problems is a completely hipped house.


Why would roof jacks (if copper or stainless) ever need to be temporarily removed? What sort of maintenance are you talking about?
