In the latest of the Countrywide Windows Blog Series, we are going to take a look at lead roofing, what makes it different compared to other types of roofing, its main uses and the benefits that you will receive if you were to choose lead roofing for your next home improvement project.
Lead roofing is commonly used to replace existing roofs that are in need of repair or are unrepairable.
Lead roofing’s flexibility and components give it excellent sealing properties when used with the correct neutral sealants. Wherever there is a join between two surfaces, lead can provide a great seal meaning your property is ship tight meaning no leaks and therefore no future repair costs. Lead can also be used as a covering for guttering too, helping make your roof 100% water-tight ensuring the maximum protection for your home against the elements.
A well designed and installed lead roof can be extremely good looking as well as being a vital part of any property.
A good quality, well installed lead roof can last three times longer than other roofing solutions. This is the reason why many historic buildings have lead roofing, as it is reliable, durable and strong which makes it a cost-effective option for the future.
