Lead Flashing

Do You Need Your Lead Flashing Replacing?

Flashings are a waterproof material that is fitted to chimneys, valleys and other parts of your roof.

Lead is considered a great option due to its adaptability, its pleasing aesthetic and durability – lasting around 60 years. Flashings also divert water, preventing leaks and water ingress. If you’ve noticed damage to your current system, we recommend replacing them immediately.
