What Is Lead Work?

Lead work involves the skilled application and shaping of lead sheeting in roofing and building construction. This traditional practice is used to create watertight seals around joins, valleys, chimneys, and other vulnerable areas on a roof. Lead is highly valued in construction for its durability, flexibility, and resistance to corrosion, making it an ideal material for weatherproofing and protecting buildings against water ingress.

Why may I need Lead Work?

Lead work might be necessary for your property to ensure it remains watertight and protected against the elements. This need arises particularly in areas vulnerable to water ingress, such as around chimneys, in roof valleys, or at joints where different roof surfaces meet. Over time, the integrity of existing lead installations can degrade due to weather exposure, necessitating repair or replacement to maintain the roof’s structural integrity.
