Lead Sheet Roof Covering & Flashing

Lead sheet roof covering and flashing is built to stand the test of time with estimates of it lasting over 100 years. Lead flashing consists of pieces of impenetrable. Waterproof lead which acts as protection for your roof from harsh Scottish weather and rain. Lead is debatably the best protection you can get on your roof and it can be used on your gutters too, providing a long term waterproof solution for your roof.


Lead Flat Roofs 

As you will know Scotland and in particular Ayrshire is no stranger to adverse weather conditions or heavy rain! With this is in mind you want to be sure that you choose a roof sealant that is going to combat this and not leave you in the position of having to have maintenance or repair work further down the line. Lead is a perfect choice for roofs in Ayrshire & Central Scotland, especially flat roofs which will have to endure the rain more.

Our team can weld lead pieces over any ridges on your roof to provide extra protection if there is no sealant in place or to repair a lead roof that has split or incurred any other damage. Here is an image of a flat lead roof coverings we have secured, which will hopefully help paint a picture of what level of protection you can expect if you are considering having your roof sealed with leadwork:

    Lead Chimney Flashing 

    This is more commonly known as apron flashing or cover flashing, it is used around the bottom of your chimney where the chimney meets your roof. The lead being installed around the edges of the chimneys stack prevents any damage being caused by bad Scottish weather, including water from heavy rainfall. Without lead flashing chimneys and roofs would be rendered useless, this is what protects you from the elements, so although it may not seem the most exciting product or service in the world, it won’t take you long to realise if your roof doesn’t have this in place or needs a replacement!

    “Carried out some specialist leadwork and other lead roofing for us which was all explained in detail. They have since completed other work that needed done on our roof and i am happy to have finally found a reliable roofer after so many wasted my time. Brilliant local business”

    “Quick quote, very competitively priced, very detail oriented, great squad of guys with brilliant work ethic. Just finished replacing our roof (re-sheeted, membrane, battens and tiles), soffits, fascias, dropped a chimney, replaced some rotten timber, two new veluxes, a new skylight and some leadwork. Thoroughly recommend Tommy and his lads, very happy with their work.”
