Done properly, there is no reason to fear punching a new hole in the roof. Often times it gets you to your ultimate location using less conductor resulting in less voltage drop. There is already at least 6-7 penetrations in the roof from the manufacturer. Everything is available to do as good or likely better job of penetrating and sealing up the roof then the manufacturer did. It is a good fear to overcome, then you will have more experience and confidence to address future plans or issues regarding maintenance to your roof..........my opinion of course, not looking for a fight.

Seems to me, the OP was asking a question on how to patch up a hole made AFTER the wire was installed, NOT what was the best method of installation. Maybe some of the more enlightened ones on this forum could spend more time working on their comprehension before banging out a bunch of condescending dribble...
