Lead has held its popularity as a modern and traditional roofing material thanks to its flexibility. It expands and contracts with fluctuations in temperature, a valuable asset given our changeable weather system.

As a local roofing company, we cannot stress how important a role leadwork plays in helping us to maintain older properties.

Below, we have provided a brief guide to the two primary aspects of our services: flashing and lead roofs.

An Introduction to Lead Flashing

When not used as the primary roofing material, leadwork usually comes in the form of flashing. You can find this feature at the junctions in your roofing structure. These areas include:

  • Chimneys

  • Walls

  • Vent Pipes

  • Dormers

  • Door Openings

  • Valleys

  • Gullies

  • Saddles

  • Ridges

Our local roofers repair and replace flashings as needed to prevent water ingress.

No matter the type of joints you have in your traditional roofing structure, they represent weak points that water can penetrate with greater ease. Our roofing contractors apply leadwork around these areas, ensuring your home in Oxford, Witney, the Cotswolds or the surrounding areas has the utmost protection.

The thin pieces of impervious metal create a weather-resistant barrier system that stops water ingress. Needless to say, when your flashing fails or suffers damage, the system no longer works. With increased water penetration, your roofing structure faces an array of problems, such as mould and rot on the internal timbers.

With its watertight quality, outstanding longevity and resistance to corrosion, our local roofers find lead ticks every box for many property owners.

As sustainability continues to play a more important role in our industry, leadwork has the added benefit of being 100% recyclable. As eco-friendly, traditional roofing contractors, this helps us to reduce our carbon footprint. In turn, this allows our company to keep costs down, ensuring we continue to offer competitive prices.
