Leadwork and flashings play a pivotal role in ensuring the durability and watertight integrity of your roof. The use of lead as a roofing material has been prevalent for centuries due to its longevity, malleability, and resistance to corrosion. In fact, the Romans were the first to use lead for roofing purposes in Europe, as early as 27 BC
Leadwork and flashings serve as vital protective barriers for your roof, preventing water ingress and consequent damage to your property. Research has shown that inadequate or failing leadwork and flashings contribute to nearly 70% of all water-related roof damage (source: RICS).
