Leadwork and Gulleys in Reading
Leadwork is a common element in old and new buildings and requires experienced and knowledgeable installers to use it correctly and understand how lead needs to breathe and flex.
Leadwork has been used in the industrial, commercial and domestic building industry for decades and has been used on the roofs of a wide variety of properties, such as churches, offices, factories, public buildings and domestic home.
Leadwork is commonly used on:
- Lead Roof Replacement

Leadwork joints must allow for thermal movement and be watertight wherever they are used. It’s important to get your leadwork installed by a professional to ensure no damage is caused to your property by water getting through the leadwork.
