Service Description

Lead has been used in roof construction for centuries. Lead is a heavy metal that is soft and malleable with a relatively low melting point. It can be formed into almost any shape, is highly resistant to corrosion and non-combustible, making it ideal for all roofing applications. Lead has a proven track record as a roofing product and has the potential to last over a 100 years if installed correctly. Many Heritage buildings have lead roofing elements that are well over 100 years old. Lead is thought to have been first mined in 6500 BC. The Romans used lead between 500 BC and 300 AD to construct aqueducts. Historians have also found the Normans used lead in their buildings, in the form of both pipes, guttering and roof coverings. Lead is also 100% recyclable, making it one of the most environmentally friendly materials available for roof covering. Around 95% of lead used today is made from recycled material.
