Weather-resistant, durable and easily recycled, lead is one of the oldest roofing materials still in use today. Its naturally waterproof qualities make it ideal for properties of all kinds – from homes in Walton-on-Thames to extensions and outbuildings in the Putney area. At Hill & Sons Roofing Limited, we understand the advantages of this material and perform leadwork services for homeowners across Surrey. Our roofing company provides lead flashings and lead roofs alike, for water protection that can last up to a century.
Often seen on churches, lead roofing may survive three times longer than alternative materials. Despite its higher cost, lead might actually save you money due to the lack of degradation.
When you choose our roofing company for leadwork, you can expect:
Serving Walton-on-Thames, Putney and the nearby regions, Hill & Sons Roofing Limited covers all of your leadwork needs. You can also rely on us for a wide variety of repairs, as well as new roof tiles and roofline maintenance.
Are your lead flashings cracked or peeling away? Checking for damage before autumn and winter could give you the best chance of stopping a leak before it happens. As a professional roofing company, we can perform a roof-level inspection to look for corrosion, distortion, rips, punctures or tears. We can also check for ripples and moss that could cause damage later on.
What Is Leadwork Used For?
Lead is a malleable material found on properties all over Surrey, including places like Putney and Walton-on-Thames. It’s primarily used to apply water protection to adjoining spaces, such as around bay windows, chimneys, roof lights and dormers. Due to its flexibility, we also use lead for valley gutters, parapets and eaves.
Without efficient leadwork from a trusted roofing company, the structure could allow water to enter the home through corners and crevices – damaging your precious items in the wetter seasons.
Lead Roof Installations
Not all materials stand the tests of time quite like lead. It holds firm against UV rays and pollutants, copes with changing temperatures and has one of the highest recycling rates today. This makes it a great option for those looking for an eco-friendly installation. We can fully build your roof from start to finish, completing the entire project in-house and at a competitive price.
When arriving at your property in Walton-on-Thames, Putney or the wider Surrey region, we will consider the age of your existing leadwork and look for signs of damage. From there, we provide new flashings for a leak-free roof that protects the interior and retains the home’s long-term value.
