Lead sheets are coded differently depending on weight. We know exactly what weight to use for each job, from listed and historic roof repairs to smart, durable lead flashings. Working with lead has serious safety implications too, so you need an expert on the job. Yes, it can be moved around by hand. But you need to have the training to do it safely or risk serious accidents and injury. We're totally committed to health and safety excellence, so with us you'll have no worries on that score. Lead can survive on a roof for centuries but it's soft. As a result it can creep and deteriorate, mostly where there are joints. We know exactly what to look for.
Now and again a lead roof can deteriorate from below rather than above. The reasons for this aren't 100% clear but there's research going on at the moment. Either way, we know what to look out for here too. Corrosion can be an issue, with condensation the culprit, and there are various ways to ensure this doesn't happen.
