Most modern roofs use lead flashing. Lead is a natural material mined from the earth. It doesn’t corrode and lasts around 100 years. It is then fully recyclable. This makes it an eco-friendly choice, even if mining has emissions.
We can fix most lead flashing problems the same day we arrive. The most common method of fixing lead flashing is with a bung. This is where we roll up a piece of lead strip and work it below the bricks to form a seal.
We can help with all types of lead flashing in terms of thickness and weight. Some of the flashing we work on is over 100 years old. We can repair or replace lead flashing depending on the manner of your problem and timescale.
