Lead Roofing & Leadwork


To ensure your roof is completely waterproof, it’s crucial to install roofing flashings around any openings that may allow water to seep through. Flashings are typically used to seal areas such as chimneys, skylights, and vent pipes. Lead has been a popular material for roofing flashings for centuries, thanks to its durability and aesthetic appeal. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find lead flashing that has remained intact for over 200 years on heritage buildings, making it an excellent choice for both commercial and residential properties.

Lead Roofing

Lead is a popular choice for roofing due to several factors. Firstly, it is a cost-effective option, as it provides a better long-term return on investment compared to other man-made materials.

Additionally, lead is renowned for its longevity, with a proven track record of lasting over 100 years, surpassing the lifespan of any other man-made roofing material.

Moreover, lead is environmentally friendly. Since much of the lead currently available has already been used before, it can be easily melted down and reformed into new milled rolls due to its low boiling point. This makes it a sustainable option, as it has a lower environmental impact than modern-day man-made alternatives, as shown by independent studies.
