    Default How to mount J Pole Antenna mount on Metal Frame house

    Has anyone ever mounted a JPole antenna mount on a metal frame house?

    Metal gutter facia's and metal frame house is doing my head in. On wooden houses everything seemed easier?

    Open to any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    If your builder was on the ball he would have put a timber nogging in behind the fascia for the areal, is it possible to ask him..? Otherwise you will have to do it yourself, the hard way..
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    Cheers,
    I'm faced with the same issue - hebel power wall/ timber frame/steel clip on fascias.

    I intend to put a noggin between two trusses and bolt the "hockey stick" mount to that. I'll need to seal going through tiles. I'll use a dektite seal on the mast and the lead-in cable.

    I'ts been suggested to me to fit a brace between two trusses rather that mount to face of a single truss is better due to wind loading on the antenna.

    If it is a tin roof you can get a stay kit to truss it to the roof, or there is a tile base that goes straight on tiles. PM me if you like

    Seems that I will need too look for roof access to mount a noggin.

    Maybe this is why I see antenna mounted atop roofs?

    Wind is a factor for me as well and bracing will definitely need to be sorted.


    Thanks for the feedback!
