Depending on the roofing material being used will determine how much lead will be required. On slate and tiled roofs lead should be used for all the flashings for which most of our standard lead flashing should cater for this. However, if an unusual detail occurs then sketch the design required with measurement and we can fabricate the flashing for you. We can also provide an onsite visit if you do not feel confident about what you require.
On hard metal roofs, the flashings are generally made from the same material. However, lead is sometimes used when there is a complex junction. Due to leads malleability it can overcome many issues that hard metal materials cannot. Please note, that depending on the type of metal a separation barrier maybe required between the lead and the metal roof.
