Why Is Lead Used For Roofing?

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.

How Long Does a Lead Roof Last?

Lead roof sheets are a very long-lasting roofing product which is why it is a popular option on commercial properties such as schools. On average a lead roof can last around 60 years, although some have been known to last at 100 years and up!

What Is The Purpose Of Lead Flashing?

Lead flashing is a critical element to many different types of roofs, such as clay and slate tiled roofs. The lead flashing is placed into sections where you may have a structural joint or where water may be able to enter such as chimney surrounds, vent pipes, and window and door openings.

Lead Flashing Repair

You may notice if your lead flashing needs repair by seeing visible cracks or noticing watermarks on your interior wall or ceilings. This is usually the result of corrosion caused by condensation, although it is rare.
