Stocking a range of lead flashing, lead rolls and lead roofing equipment
Lead has been used as a roofing material for centuries due to its incredible properties. It boasts an array of great benefits for your roof including excellent durability, flexibility, ease of installation, ease of maintenance, beneficial malleable properties and environmentally friendly features.
Although lead is viewed as a toxic product, it only poses a risk to roofers who are in direct contact with the materials every day meaning they have to follow a set of rules and regulations to ensure health and safety standards are being met.
With that being said, it should be noted that lead is not toxic to homeowners when used on your roof. In fact, roofing lead is one of the most efficient and effective ways to waterproof joints in roof construction. Not only this but lead roofing products can last for up to 200 years making them a lifelong investment that will give your property a stylish and protective roof.

Lead sheets are a common material used in lead roofing. They come in various sizes and thicknesses and can easily be shaped to fit different roof structures. Lead sheets are typically used on pitched roofs or to cover flat roofs.
Lead flashing is used to waterproof joints and connections in the roof around weak spots such as around chimneys, skylights and vents. Lead flashing is malleable and easily shaped to fit around tight areas acting as a waterproof shield on your roof.
Lead Rolls & Strips
Lead rolls and strips are narrower sections of lead that are often used for specific detailing or to cover smaller areas of the roof.
Lead shingles offer a more decorative option for your roof. They are cut into tile like shapers and can be used for both aesthetic purposes and as a durable roofing material to help protect your property.
