Lead Roofing & Lead Work In Basingstoke
Lead work is a common element used on the roofs in old and new buildings. Lead is a heavy metal that is soft and malleable and can take any shape when heated. However, when they harden or are converted into sheets, they can easily last for about 80-90 years and even more. It also does not rust easily and is non-combustible, making it perfect for use in the roof. Because of its reliable properties and its ability to handle different weather conditions, particularly for Basingstoke, it is used for different roofing purposes in many different ways.
Our roofers at Beacon Basingstoke Roofing are licensed and trained to use lead in different ways, including welding, lead flashings, valleys, box gutters and sheeting. Even though lead has been used for years, new techniques are being developed to use lead safely and effectively for different roofing purposes. Our lead work crew keep themselves up-to-date with the latest techniques to provide you with the most efficient services. We have been carrying our lead work on roofs, chimneys, and even decoration and much more for our residential and commercial clients in Basingstoke.
Top Reasons to Use Lead Work in Roofing
Lead is considered to be one of the best roofing coverings for numerous reasons. The most unique feature of lead work is its flexibility. It expands and contracts with temperature change and do not crack like copper or lead alternatives. It also works alongside other elements on your roof and against them. Here are some other benefits of lead work in roofing –
- Lead is an eco-friendly product and is recycled. It means they do not harm the environment and a great option for eco-conscious customers.
- Lead work is very strong and water-resistant. It offers great protection against any weather condition, including rain, snow and storms.
- Even though lead is a manmade product and has a low carbon print, there is no compromise on its strength and durability.
- Lead is cost effective and can easily last for more than 100 years without the need for much maintenance.
- Lead is not only strong but, when done correctly, looks attractive on the house or commercial property.
Leadwork requires years of practice and should never be attempted by a novice. If not performed correctly, they can cause damage to your roof and can even lead to injuries.
