Lead is a highly versatile roofing material and has been regarded as one of the best roof coverings. Lead is most commonly used on a roof to seal the joints between two surfaces. This process is known as “flashing,” and acts as a barrier between your roof and brickwork. Lead roof flashing can prevent leaks, and keep your roof safe from unpredictable changes in the weather.
Lead flashing can be found in many areas throughout a house, from your walls and doors to your skylights, vents, and roof valleys. Without flashing, rainwater would just disappear into the interior of your house, causing damp, and problems with structural integrity.Lead is a valuable and popular choice for both roof repair and flashing. Leadwork is malleable, which means it can be carefully constructed into a range of different shapes. The malleability of lead makes it an unmatched substance for long performance, which means that it can be carefully constructed into a range of different shapes. Not only is lead flexible, but it’s also very durable too, due to its natural resistance to corrosion and water.
Lead also requires very little maintenance over time, which means that it could help you to save money on roof care, some lead flashing can even last for as long as 500 years.
