This major refurbishment project required 96 properties on the Maerdy estate in Rhondda, South Wales to have a new roofing solution with a system guarantee, technical reassurance and secure fixing throughout.
Trivallis Surveyors specified the BMI Redland Renown tile, as it provides a contemporary feel, and is efficient to install with superb wind and driving rain performance.
Fixed with nails throughout, the tiles were reinforced on the first 6 courses with BMI Redland’s Innofix Clip to guard against high winds. The Innofix Clip is a multi-award winning revolutionary tool-free tile clip. Simple to fix, and quicker to install than a regular nail, and it is suitable for all UK exposures under the BS 5534:2014 standard.
“The SpecMaster service ensured that we met the current British Standards, we got the technical advice that we needed and we got the guarantee from BMI Redland which meant we know we don't have a problem with the roof for 15 years. We know that our properties are watertight and that our roofers know exactly what they're doing.”
Lee Tapper - Trivallis Surveyors
“I had previously been trained in how the Innofix clip worked and how quick and easy it is to fix, but many of my operatives hadn’t had the training. So it was beneficial when BMI Redland sent one of its training staff to site to show the teams how it worked.”

Trivallis Surveyors opted for the BMI Redland SpecMaster service for this project. Developed for architects and specifiers, the SpecMaster specification tool covers every detail of a complete roofing solution; from tiling, performance and compliance, to the British Standards. During installation, the BMI Redland Specification Manager visited the site regularly to inspect the quality of work and provide additional technical support.
