    They have made valley installation bearable rather than depressing.

    I did mine DIY with dry valley too. No messing with mortar and will last longer as a result hopefully.

    The boards NEED TO BE FLUSH otherwise they'll jut the tiles up and it'll look awful.

    I just did my first two. Happy enough with the outcome other than the Marley Anglia giving me PTSD.

    I used the proprietary rubber end pieces rather than lead. They worked okay for me but obviously less versatile than lead.

    Thanks guys. I had to leave the valleys and concentrate on other bits so I am still looking into it. My main thing though is my valley isnt intended to go all the way down to the facia / gutter....

    BC inspector had a look today and he happy with a 3 inch wide lead valley as it's only short so I'm good to get that done this weekend.

    Also need along front of dormer etc overlapping tiles etc . All good.
