Lead has been used as one of the primary types of roofing materials across the UK for centuries, thanks to its many advantages:
A flat roof with lead can last over 100 years with proper maintenance and repair, boasting an impressive life span. This makes it an excellent investment for your home. Lead is one of the oldest materials in the industry and it’s still commonly used on most roofs today.
Due to its superb malleability and low melting point, lead is flexible, meaning it can withstand weathering and last through storms. It won’t crack, warp, or suffer corrosion like other materials which makes it ideal for all roofing applications.
Lead is 100% recyclable. At the end of its life, the lead can be reclaimed and recycled into new products.
The natural grey patina of aged lead is a classic, attractive look for period homes, especially around the chimney stack. It adds character.
