Lead is an incredibly durable roofing product that offers great protection and withstands all kinds of weather conditions. It has been used as a roofing product, stretching further back than the Roman era, so it has certainly stood the test of time.
Lead roofing is also extremely versatile due to its low melting point and the fact that lead sheets are in fact quite light. It is a great product to use if your roof is of an unusual shape.
Over and above this lead roofing is also eco-friendly. When a lead roof reaches the end of its life it can then be melted down and reused once more without losing any of the benefits it once had, such as being weatherproof.
