lead work

You may think leadwork is a roofing job however as Plumbers we are specialists in roofing leadwork services. Our leadwork includes line valley gutters and to cover a wide variety of connections between slate/tile work and masonry, chimneys and to waterproof the junction between tiles and brickwork, or tile-to-tile junctions which are vulnerable to penetration by water, such as gullies. We also specialise in lead ‘soaker’ which is a sheet of lead placed under the tiles at a join against a wall covered with step flashing to form a waterproof seal.

The lead sheet should be held in position with fixings of a type, strength and position which:

  • Support the weight of the lead sheet
  • Are resistant to corrosion
  • Allow for thermal movement to take place
  • Resist wind uplift
