Local Lead Flashing & Gullies Specialists Fulmer
Leadwork has been used in the industrial, commercial and domestic building industry for decades and has been used on roofs across Fulmer on a wide variety of properties, such as churches, offices, factories, public buildings and homes.
Leadwork is a common element in old and new buildings and requires experienced and knowledgeable installers to use it correctly and understand how lead needs to breathe and flex.
Leadwork in Fulmer is commonly used on:
- Lead roof replacement
- Roof flashings
- Lead gullies
Leadwork joints must allow for thermal movement and be watertight wherever they are used. It’s important to get your leadwork installed by a professional to ensure no damage is caused to your property by letting water through the leadwork. Old & New Roofing has many years of experience in the roofing trade and working with leadwork, so we can ensure any leadwork is installed and maintained to the highest possible standards.
What is Lead Flashing?
Flashing is fitted around roof edges and structures such as chimneys. It is a vital part of the roof as it creates a watertight seal around the structure ensuring no rain gets in the gap between the different sections of roof. Lead is a perfect material for this as it can be moulded into any shape and fitted to form a complete seal.
What is a Lead Valley?
Seen on pitched roofs, a roof valley is the section where two slopes meet and an area where there will be a slight gap in the tiles. To stop rainwater from getting through the roof, lead can be used to fill the gaps. Not only does it keep moisture out, but it provides a clear slope for rainwater to run off the roof.
