Scuffed then cleaned the surface of the mounting pads, used 3M VHB Tape 4930. No screws=no leaks, no roof maintenance.

Nice, I like your way of thinking.

Way to many folks on here forget we live in a age of adhesives.

Many times there is no need for mechanical fasteners. The adhesives work just as well or better than the mechanical fasteners.
