Leadwork roofing components have been used for generations to create watertight seals between the various connecting elements of a roofing system. Along with providing robust long-term protection from the elements, leadwork roofing can also be extremely attractive. Leadwork continues to play a major role in the construction, repair and maintenance of many types of commercial and residential roofs.

As a leading local leadwork roofing contractor, we’re able to cover all aspects of leadwork installation and maintenance at competitive prices. Backed by more than 20 years’ industry experience, we know how to consistently exceed expectations while minimising costs.

Call or e-mail anytime if you have any questions on leadwork roofing, or to arrange an obligation-free quotation.

How long does a lead roof last?

As a general rule of thumb, lead roofing materials and components have an approximate lifespan of 60 years or more. However, it’s perfectly possible for the highest quality lead roofs with periodic maintenance to last more than 100 years. By a considerable margin, this therefore makes lead the single most cost-effective material available for the manufacture of a wide variety of roofing parts and components.

The lifespan of any roof will be determined by a variety of factors, including the quality of the materials used and the installation process. At Asgard Roofing, everything we do prioritises long-term value for money for the customers we work with.

1
Is lead still used in roofing?

Lead is still used in roofing worldwide, primarily in the manufacture of hard-wearing parts and components for commercial and residential roofs alike. It is one of the most durable and long-lasting materials of its kind available, with a comparatively low price and unique malleability.

This makes lead a popular choice among roofers and roofing component manufacturers, which in the right hands can also be surprisingly safe.  However, the fact that lead should be handled with due care and attention means lead roofing component replacements and repairs should ideally be handled exclusively by experienced personnel.

2
What can be used instead of lead?

There’s a long list of materials that can be used for the manufacture of roofing components as an alternative to traditional lead flashing. Ubbink, Icopal, Deks and Cromar are just a few of the brands that produce cutting-edge materials that replicate the properties and benefits of lead, without the potential risks associated with lead components.

However, it’s worth remembering that when lead flashing and roofing components in general are handled and installed with care, they needn’t be hazardous. Lead can pose a health and safety risk when it is not handled properly, which is why we recommend seeking the help of an experienced contractor to perform the lead roofing services you need.

Lead Flashing

Millions of homes and businesses across the UK feature lead flashing, which has been used for generations in the manufacture of various roofing components. Lead flashing has a long list of associated benefits, including relentless durability, ease of manipulation and cost-effectiveness.

Incredibly, the highest quality lead flashing with minimal routine maintenance has the potential to last more than a century. Even today, there’s almost no material on the market that can replicate the durability, longevity or affordability of lead. Precisely why it remains a popular choice among roofers and property owners worldwide.

Lead Flashing Repair

For health and safety reasons, lead flashing repairs should only ever be performed by an experienced specialist. Lead can be a safe and reliable roofing material, though needs to be handled with care and properly installed. Where lead flashing repairs become necessary, it takes knowledge, experience and expertise to perform them safely and efficiently.

In addition, lead flashing repairs should not be attempted without the specialist equipment needed to get the job done safely. At Asgard Roofing, our experienced team of contractors has spent more than two decades performing lead flashing repairs and installations for homes and businesses across the region.

So pleased to have Shane and Sean assist us with the revamping to the front of the house. Asgard roofing completed all the work efficiently and professionally, with the standard of work being exceptional. Even with tasks not usually associated with roofing, e.g. smooth coat rendering, porch floor tiling, and brickwork. Shane was able to carry these works out with little trouble and to a very high standard. A true pleasure to deal with and would highly recommend.read more

I’ve used Shane twice now for work on my property. He consistently does great work, is friendly, punctual, has competitive pricing, and shows himself to have a far better knowledge of the trade than anyone else I’ve ever asked to do similar work. I won’t be calling upon anyone else other than Shane to do further work. Highly recommended.read more

Andrew and his team helped us quickly and in good time! We are trying to sell our home and discovered some areas of the roof that had leaks. Being that the roof is nearly 30 years old, we decided to replace it. Asgard were very professional and stayed in contact with us frequently. I am thoroughly pleased and definitely recommend their business.read more

We engaged Asgard Roofing to initially identify a leak which we weren’t sure whether it was from the flat roof or hanging roof tiles. This identified that the hanging tiles were the issue so we asked Shane to replace these.This was all done on time , to budget , and in a very professional and tidy manner. We were really pleased with the work , and Shanes suggestion to add insulation behind the tiles at the same time.It was a pleasure to have them on site as they were friendly and helpful, we intend to use them again in the near future and our neighbours were so impressed that they have now asked for a quote as well. The attached pictures illustrate the improvement from the old tiles in both look , quality, and rain proofing.We have no hesitation in recommending Shane and Asgard Roofingread more

I have used Asgard Roofing on a couple of occasions now and each time they have provided an excellent service. Shane is always quick to respond to calls/emails and both him and his team carry out the requested work to a high standard without rushing and talking you through the work as it progresses ,the most recent being a total replacement of a flat extension roof. Shane and his team obviously take great pride in the work that they carry out and i would not hesitate to use them again and also recommend them to friends/family.read more

Shane and Sean have attended my property on four occasions now. I keep going back to them as they simply get the job done to a high standard and without fuss. I have found them to be reliable, considerate and trustworthy. They have repaired my roof and have done an excellent job in applying lead flashing to a very difficult and hazardous area on my house. I have no problems in recommending these likeable contractors.read more

Customer Testimonials

Had been struggling to get anyone to find where the leak in my roof was coming from. Shane found the cracked tile that no-one else had seen. The work itself took less than 30 minutes. I’d also struggled to get people to get back to me in the first place to appreciate that Shane did.

Customer in Morden February 2020

Fantastic work done fully replacing an old dysfunctional guttering system, black upvc fascia, and soffit that was all in such a poor state it was causing damage to our property not to mention looking horrendous. Work was completed.

Customer in London January 2020

They had a clean and tidy approach to their work and nothing was too much trouble. The price we paid was fair. All the work was carried out to a high standard and we were very pleased with the work. Thank you Shane and son!

Customer in London January 2020

Very efficient – arrived at 8 am and completed the job by lunchtime. Good work and left site neat and tidy. Also did an extra bit of work removing defunct downpipe. All in all I would highly recommend.
