"BMI was always there to offer any advice that we needed"...

When the new owners of The Gables, a striking Arts & Crafts residence, discovered the roof needed replacing, finding a solution that would preserve the heritage aesthetic of the property was paramount, but it was also important to ensure the roofing materials and workmanship were on par with the original installation.

Neil Sweeting of N T Sweeting Roofing Contractors describes how BMI Redland's SpecMaster roof specification and guarantee service helped with this project and how the beautiful Rosemary Clay Classic tile restored the beauty of this property.

From roof specification to guarantee...

No roof is exactly the same...

Our BMI Redland Technical Services team are on hand to provide you with a bespoke roofing specification that instantly problem-solves and removes risks of inadequate wind uplift resistance or inadequate ventilation, roof leakage or tile loss for your project.

As well as consideration to individual elements such as the shape, pitch, weight and type of tile or slate needed, a roof needs to work as a whole system - fundamentals that our experts deal with on a daily basis.

Your enquiry will receive personal expert attention for your project.

Complete design liability

We work on a simple premise. If you specify our products, then you will benefit from the resources we can bring to ensure our products perform reliably over time. There are lots of product guarantees available in the construction market, but SpecMaster goes much further to be more than just a product warranty.

The roofing products, systems and junctions between detailed in a SpecMaster specification are guaranteed to be weathertight against driving rain and extreme wind conditions. We take sole responsibility should something go wrong, or if any roofing element fails in those 15 years, and will pay for the full cost of setting it straight. This includes materials, labour and scaffolding. You won’t find a more extensive roof guarantee anywhere else.
