Leadwork is one of our specialties. Most roofing contractors are unable to tackle it well, and it can look ugly if it’s poorly executed. Lead is, without doubt, a very important building material with a long life span, it’s extremely flexible, making it perfect for moulding to fit the complex shapes of some roofs.
Used properly, applied skillfully, and applied in the correct way, this will last 100 years.
Besides looking great, this is a great cost saving exercise against other options.
Why is Lead Work so Important?
Lead has been used for more than 150 years and still remains a popular material. It is both durable and flexible, resistive to corrosion and has the capacity to both shrink and expand depending on the temperature. We are experts in lead work and passionate about using it to not only secure your property when used for flashings but also for box gutters and troughs or lead bay tops.
Perished flashings are one of the major causes of leaks in homes, partly because they are regularly under attack from high winds so its always a good idea to have an expert check these if you have water coming in your property.
We often find that lead work can be a cause for roof leaks in a property rather than roof tiles. Poorly installed lead work can come loose and cause gaps or raise is the right weight of lead hasn't been used.
