Types of lead like Code 5 lead is highly malleable yet extremely strong and stands up to decades of exposure to weather elements like rain, wind and sun without deterioration. Lifespans over 100 years are common.

100% Recyclable

Lead is environmentally friendly as it can be recycled repeatedly without loss of quality. We recycle all lead onsite and take sustainability seriously through eco-friendly practices.

Unrivalled Weatherproofing

Lead can be fabricated into any conceivable shape and formed around intricate architectural features like dormers and gutters. This allows creative solutions for even unique flat roofs.

Enhances Property Value

Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose lead over other metals?

Lead is unmatched in durability, weatherproofing ability, customisability and sustainability. It lasts over 100 years and is 100% recyclable. Other metals corrode, deteriorate or stain nearby stonework through oxidation.

Is it safe to have lead on my roof?

Yes, lead is entirely safe once installed. We follow strict protocols during installation and recycling. The key is avoiding contact before it is sealed within the roof structure. We take safety very seriously.

Is planning permission needed?

Not usually, unless your home is grade listed or in a conservation area with special restrictions. We can advise if permissions are needed for repairsreplacements or re-covering and assist with any applications required.

How long does lead work last?

When properly installed and maintained, lead will last well over 100 years before needing any refurbishment. Many lead roofs in the UK are still performing perfectly after 120-150 years of service.

Does lead work add value to my property?

Yes! There is consistent market data showing period properties with original lead roof details sell for higher prices compared to modern tiles. And it also prevents damp/rot which makes homes more saleable.

How often does lead work need maintenance?

Barely ever – just occasional cleaning every 5-10 years. Unlike other metals, lead does not corrode or rust. It can last incredibly long without intervention when installed correctly by our specialists.
