Leadwork Thats Stands The Test Of Time

Leadwork has been used for building materials for more than 200 years as a way to prevent water penetration. If installed by professional and skilled craftsmen lead work can last up to a lifetime.

Leadwork & Welding plays an all-important part in traditional British building. Lead is still invaluable as weather protection for many traditional British buildings. Even when not used as a roof covering, it can be present as a gutter or flashing, or a bridge at awkward junctions between walls and roofs.

The weight of the lead has health and safety implications, too. On a roof, lead sheets can only be effectively maneuvered by hand.

Lead can survive on a roof for generations, but, as with all roof coverings, some deterioration eventually occurs, mostly at joints and junctions. Over time, with repeated warming and cooling, large sheets of lead have a tendency to 'creep' down a roof slope.

Lead roofs and gutters are made by laying sheets of the metal onto timber boards. Jointing details allow the sheets to integrate, producing a weatherproof surface.
