Kingsley- Domestic lead work

Kingsley Roofing undertake a large number of domestic lead work projects annually using the best quality materials and we make sure our roofers are highly trained in the traditional craft of lead working. When correctly made and fixed to the highest standards lead work will last for up to 100 years, and whilst giving a beautiful finish this also means you won’t have to spend time worrying about leaking roofs again.

Lead is without doubt a valuable weather protection for the roofs of many traditional buildings in Britain.  It can be skillfully used to bridge junctions between walls and roofs when at awkward angles and can also be used in guttering or flashing.  Kingsley Roofing use our combined skills of both lead work and slating to give the roofs we complete a very aesthetically pleasing look.

Our lead work includes:

  • Flat lead roofs
  • Lead Flashings
  • Soakers
  • Lead Guttering
  • Lead Dormers
  • Lead Panels

Benefits of using Lead:

Lead is malleable and soft which means it can be easily manipulated and through bossing can be made to fit multiple types of profiled tiles whilst also being made into complicated shapes. Rolled lead sheet can provide maintenance free cover for over 100 years because of its resistance to corrosion.

We are all becoming more aware of our impact on the environment, and Kingsley Roofing promote the use of lead sheets due to the fact that they are 100% recyclable .  The lead industry therefore has a continuing good reputation of helping to conserve vital energy resources.
