Roof lead repair and replacement in West Wickham

As with most materials, if not maintained correctly lead can fail over time, especially in older houses. Lead cracks can occur when the lead expands and contracts in correlation to the temperature, it is quite normal and lead can withstand a lot these changes but over time the constant expanding and contracting of the lead can cause cracks and leaks.

We often find leaks on Bay windows that have been topped with Lead from the original build. The first sign of cracked leadwork on Bay windows or roofs is water dripping on the sill a brown stain on the ceiling or water running down the internal window.

Is there an alternative to Lead Roofing?

Increasing lead theft is becoming more of a problem, so some people are moving away from using lead on their roofs, and certainly, if you’re talking about small roofs or lead bays. Fibreglass and Felt roofing is a viable replacement option for Lead. Speak to one of our local West Wickham roofing experts who will suggest the best roofing material for your needs and budget.
