Did you know that lead work on your roof is equally as important as the roof covering itself? Have you ever noticed a stain on the ceiling and had a look for broken tiles but cannot see anything to blame? It is probably down to the lead flashings!
Pople Roofing over many years in the field has experienced a number of occasions where faulty lead work is causing roof leaks not the tiles as expected!
The Lead Work Repair Process
Irrespective of the size or style of your roof domestic or commercial, Our team can carry out the leadwork repairs needed to reseal and repair the roof.
The first step is for us to visit your property and assess the type of repair to be carried out, we will then provide you with a quote should you wish to go ahead we will arrange a time to complete the repairs.
Lead flashing is a roofing solution designed to improve how well your roof is protected against the elements and can be used on pitched roofs, flat roofs or even domed roofs, making it an incredibly versatile feature.
One of the key things we say to all our clients is that identifying issues early or preventing them from occurring in the first place is one of the easiest ways to save money on roofing work. While all roofs suffer wear and tear over time, one of the biggest reasons for this is their exposure to the elements, so it’s vital to make your roof as weather resistant as possible. Signs of deterioration to look out for include crumbling chimney stacks, leaks and cracks around roofing features. These can be stopped in their tracks by the installation of high-quality lead flashing.
As well as being highly functional, lead flashings can provide an attractive finish around your roofing structures, giving the entire roof a makeover.
This is a great solution where a tired looking roof is having a negative effect on how the outside of your property looks or even for creating a cleaner looking finish on new roofs. Not only that, but it’s a material which is easy to maintain, helping the updated appearance of your roof to last longer than with lower quality materials.
