Many of our clients are unaware of the essential role lead plays in the structure of their roofs. Lead is one of the more traditional roofing materials, however its resistance and durability are unbeatable as it is resistant to weather and corrosion. Because of this, lead tends to be a more expensive investment, however it proves to be better value over time as it lasts longer than other materials.
We also offer a professional Lead welding service for your roof should you require this.
Lead roofing as an option is usually considered last after slate and tiled, as people do not realise the benefits of it as it isn’t as widely popular. There are several benefits associated with having lead as your material of choice for your roof:
- Flexible material
- Expands and contracts according to temperature
- Excellent sealing properties, so is watertight
- Long life- can last up to 3 times longer than other roofing materials
- Resistant to corrosion
- Recyclable- reduces carbon emissions
Please note that all lead work that we carry out follows the Lead Sheet Association Guidelines.
LEAD ROOF REPAIRS
In addition to the installation of lead roofs, we also repair the leadwork that already exists in your roof. Lead flashings within your roof are there for a number of reasons, for example as a way of preventing water from leaking in your chimney. In addition, lead is used to prevent water from entering joints such as walls, window and door openings, and ventilation pipes.
Many of our clients choose to use lead to cover your roofs guttering to make it completely waterproof. One of leads most useful qualities is the adaptability to the unpredictable British weather, it grows and shrinks with the temperature changes.
