As one of the leading roofing companies in Kent, we offer our customers when it comes to quality leadwork. Here are some of the ways we can help you…
of good leadwork
Without leadwork to protect them, roofs are liable to leaks. This results in all kinds of damage to your home, such as damp, mould, and decaying timbers. Any joints in the roof – including chimney stacks, skylights, and parapets walls – can lead to leaks. Leadwork is installed at these vulnerable areas to divert the flow of water away from them.
Leadwork – or lead flashing – is a simple solution to a serious problem. Thin pieces of lead are installed at the joints to limit the possibilities of water penetration. Rather than seeping into weak spots, rainwater is diverted onto your roofing tiles to harmlessly drain away. This ensures your entire roof is protected against inclement weather.
While non-lead flashing is available, here at Cousins Roofing & Building Ltd, we deal exclusively in lead. Not only is it strong and durable, it has proven itself to be the most effective waterproofing solution for roofs. Our customers across Kent – from Petts Wood, Orpington, and Bromley, to Sevenoaks, Chislehurst, and beyond – would certainly agree with that assessment.
Aside from its waterproofing qualities, lead provides additional benefits. It is highly thermal resistant, acting as an additional layer of insulation for your roof. This make is particularly popular for homes with a loft conversion or other active attic space. It also possesses sound-dampening qualities, muffling the noise of rainfall on roofing tiles.
While the purpose of lead flashing protecting your roof against water damage, we can make it look great as well. Lead is a naturally malleable material and, in its flashing form, is easy to cut, mould, and shape. Likewise, it can easily be buffed to an attractive sheen, creating an eye-catching effect around the areas it is protecting.
Lead flashing is not just for pitched or tiled roofs. Flat roofs can also benefit from its waterproofing properties. Of course, any properly-installed flat roof should already be entirely watertight, with or without leadwork. That said, lead flashing is an effective way to seal a flat roof, offering additional peace of mind.
Of course, we don’t just install new leadwork. If your existing lead flashing has deteriorated or suffered damage, we can repair or replace it. We start by performing a leakage test to determine the extent of the damage. From there, our team of roofers work quickly to restore your leadwork, leaving it good as new.
