RUTLAND LEADWORK ROOFING

Our main speciality is traditional lead roofs.
From minor repairs to complete renewal

Lead is an excellent material for roof coverings, to cover flat roofs, to line valley gutters and to cover a wide variety of connections between slatework and masonry, chimneys and so on to waterproof the junction between tiles and brickwork, or tile-to-tile junctions which are vulnerable to penetration by water, such as gullies.A lead 'soaker' is a sheet of lead placed under the tiles at a join,for example,against a wall covered with step flashing to form a waterproof seal. Where terracotta ridge tiles are inappropriate, for example on a small porch roof, a hip may be sealed with a 'hip roll', lead flashing wrapped round a wooden pole to give a ridge. A roof is most likely to leak from its weakest point. Quite often this will be where different rooling types meet, such as tile or lead flashings.

All Leadwork is undertaken from Stepped Flashings to Box Gutters and Run out Valleys. We can accommodate for all types of work ranging from Bossing to Welding and we can offer a complete service to the client.Our leadwork meets the high standard required on listed and period properties and according to LSA guidelines.
