Why Lead Roofing?

Lead Roofs are chosen not only for their beautiful finished look but also for the knowledge that you will never have to worry about a leaking roof again. One of the oldest roofing materials available, lead is popular throughout roofing installations for its numerous quality properties, including durability, reliability, flexibility and resistance to corrosion.

Flexible Sealant

Installed using sheets of lead, lead roofing can be stretched around details and manipulated into complex shapes. This offers excellent coverage when compared to inflexible roof tiles, and contributes to creating a tight seal between joins, ensuring your roof is completely waterproof and protected against harsh British winters.

Lead roofing is a long-lasting roofing solution, with installations lasting in excess of 100 years, and is the reason you will commonly see lead roofs on listed and historic buildings. Not only does this make lead roofing a cost-effective option for overhauling your roof but you can trust it’ll look good too.

Adaptive to British Conditions

In the UK, lead is an ideal roofing material as it is adaptable to the weather conditions, preventing unnecessarily strain on fixings and offering great resistance against intense UV rays. This helps keep your lead roofing low maintenance and the additional resistance against corrosion ensures your lead roofing looks fantastic for years to come.

Environmentally Friendly

Lead is one of the most recyclable building materials in use and has one of the highest rates of recycling around the world. This contributes to lower carbon emissions and a healthier and more sustainable environment.

With all these benefits available from a lead roof installation, it’s easy to see why lead roofing is so prominent in buildings, classic and modern, all over the country.
