Lead roof work and flashing 

Lead Work

Leadwork is a common element in old and new buildings. It requires experienced and knowledgeable installers such as Orchards Roofing Ltd to use it correctly and understand how lead needs to breathe and flex. When installed correctly lead can be a great and long-lasting roof material.

The Lead work on your roof is equally as important as the roof covering itself. Damaged or incorrectly installed lead work can lead to costly damage to your roof and cause damp issues in your house.

Orchard Roofing have years of experience working with lead working with lead roofs, step flashing, cover flashing and decorative bays.

We ensure your lead is correctly installed, dressed and pointed potentially saving you unnecessary expense and repair bills in the future.

Lead Work Repair

If your lead has become damaged over the years, we may be able to repair the joints rather than replacing the whole lead gulley. Alternatively, we can replace the lead work with a new installation.

We offer a range of Leadwork services, including:

  • Site Survey

OUR OTHER ROOFING SERVICES

Slate Roofs

Slate roofing is one of the more traditional styles of roofing currently in use, yet it dates back to the 19th Century. It’s popularity as a roofing material comes from its extremely low water absorption index and ability to withstand low temperatures.

Tile Roofs

As one of the most popular roofing materials used in the UK, especially on domestic homes, roof tiles are a traditional custom-made product perfect for great looking and reliable roofs. We can provide a wide range of clay and concrete tiles to match your preferred colour, design or budget.

Flat Roofs

Most commonly seen on Garages, Extensions, and Porches. Flat roofs have a wide range of applications and come in  a variety of materials depending on your needs, including Felt, Rubber, and Fibreglass. Contact us for a free consultation to find what flat roof material is best suited to your needs.

Lead Work

Lead work joints must allow for thermal movement and be watertight wherever they are used. We may be able to repair your damaged lead work if the condition is relatively good. Alternatively, we can replace the lead work with a new installation.
