One of the worst problems a property owner can experience with their roof is leaks which often occur when weathering or damage causes water to enter the home. Leaks can cause major issues such as damp, mould and damage to your property such as the decay of roofing timbers. It can affect any part of your roof where there are joints, including chimney stacks, parapet walls and skylights. Directing the flow of water away from a property, lead flashings are the ideal solution for preventing any moisture from entering your home. Lead’s strength, quality and style mean it’s the perfect option for creating a long term, weather resistant barrier for your roof.

Being such a solid and reliable material, lead is a bonus layer of resilient insulation for your roof. Not only does this offer waterproofing benefits but can provide extra thermal and sound insulation too. This is particularly advantageous if you’ve had a loft conversion and want your roof to be as robust as possible for protecting the new room in your home. Lead flashing also creates an attractive finish around the structures on your roof, enhancing the overall look of your property.
