Lead Flashing

Lead has long been used in roofing and to this day remains an excellent building material. It’s extremely durable, relatively easy to work with and has a design appeal for those seeking that traditional look.

Because it can be moulded into various shapes it works particularly well as lead flashing and offers a completely watertight seal to your roof.

Benefits of a Lead

  • It's easily moulded

    Lead is a highly flexible material and can be easily moulded into a wide range of forms and shaped to sit neatly along a roof line. This also makes it great for flat roofs where the joins can be welded to create a watertight roofing solution.

  • It's corrosion and water-resistant

    Lead is resistant to corrosion and water. A desirable quality for a watertight roof exposed to the elements including rain, temperature changes, UV rays and atmospheric pollutants.

  • It's long-lasting

    Due to its durability and weather resistance, lead takes a long time to lose its quality and functionality. Fitted correctly and taken care of, a lead roof can sometimes last for hundreds of years.

  • It's recyclable

    Lead is one of the most recycled materials in the world and when sustainability is such a big part of our lives today, it's good to know that your lead roof can be a big asset and have a low impact on the environment.

Benefits of a Mard Metal Roof

  • They're long-lasting

    When fitted correctly hard metal roofs like zinc or copper have been proven to last up to over 100 years.

  • They're low maintenance

    Once installed, a hard metal roof requires very little maintenance or expense to keep it performing against the elements.

  • They're lightweight (compared to lead and tiled roofs)

    Most types of metal roofing are surprisingly lightweight, much more so than alternatives such as lead and tile. This makes them easier to install with less stress on load-bearing roof supports.

  • They're eco friendly

    Metal roofs are 100% recyclable! This makes it one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable roof options you can choose when it reaches the end of its useful life.
