Lead Work

Leadwork plays an integral role in the structure and durability of your roof. Lead flashings act as a joint to connect various parts of your roof and ensure it is protected from the elements.

Though it is one of the oldest building materials still in use lead is also one of the most durable.
Its resistance to atmospheric corrosion means lead will last longer than any of its synthetically produced alternatives. So while lead may be slightly more expensive initially, its durability and lifespan means it offers the best value for money long-term.

Leadwork and roof flashing is a specialist skill and should not be attempted by the novice. If not done correctly it can cause further damage to your roof.

Lead-WorkSimpson Dennis roofers have over 30 years’ experience and are highly skilled in carrying out all kinds of leadwork from roof flashings at valleys, to more complex work on dormers and other roofing features.

All leadwork is carried out by trained roofers who employ the correct installation techniques to the relevant standards.

When carrying out leadwork we will remove all old Code 3 lead and replace it with brand new Code 4 lead which is more durable and has a longer lifespan.
