The use of lead in roofs goes back many centurie
Since the material can last for more than 200 years and can be shaped to fit into complex grooves. As a property owner, you need not be worried about the health hazards of lead on your roof as long as you leave the handling of the material itself to trained professionals. Our crew at Belfast Roofing knows how to properly conduct roof lead work. We are safety trained and qualified to monitor our lead exposure by avoiding skin contact and ingestion/inhalation of dust.
Throughout the seasons, we undertake all aspects of flashing and roofing lead work. We are a team of fully trained lead roofing and roofing specialists with over 25 years of experience and have been involved in restoration projects on high profile and historical buildings. For customers across Northern Ireland, Belfast Roofing Services is the first choice for all period property restorations and repairs, using traditional roofing techniques with both milled and sand-cast lead.
Our specialties include:
- Ornate decorative features: Leadwork roofing can involve the use of lead in domes, cathedral spires, stained-glass windows, and plaques. This is due to lead’s ability to cast well in a mould, so it can maintain the fine details of the mould.
- Lead flashing: Since lead resists corrosion and is incredibly flexible, it is often used as flashing that directs water into gutters and away from the middle of the roof. As a sealant, lead is a great option. Lead flashing repair and maintenance needs to be done in order to keep all the drainage on your roof working properly and in order to prevent water from leaking into your property.
- Recycling lead: Lead can be recycled, which is good news for reducing carbon emissions. We have the knowledge to appropriately recycle and reuse this metal if it is found on your roof and needs to be removed.
