Lead is a heavier soft metal which has been used for many hundreds of years to provide roof coverings and weatherings to historic, listed and domestic properties. 
Lead is extremely malleable meaning it can be formed into incredibly complex shapes and patterns. Lead roofs are among the most common types of roofing systems found all over the world. They are easy to maintain and are known for being strong and durable. 


Lead sheeting is used extensively throughout construction projects, especially those involving roofs. 
This versatile material allows contractors to pull it taut and stretch it over tricky shapes and areas for complete coverage. Once in place, lead sheeting expands and contracts according to the temperature, which makes it ideal for a roof in Britain where the weather is unpredictable. 

Corrosion Resistant 

Lead roofs are known for being one of the most durable roofing options available. 
They offer superior protection against weather elements such as wind, rain, snow, hail, and sun damage. Corrosive elements like salt water and acid rain are able to damage many materials including steel and concrete, however, lead doesn't suffer from such attacks.
