As a lead roofing specialist in Devon, SS Roofing has years of experience working with lead.
Our ample experience has taught us the many advantages of choosing lead roofing.
A strong, yet flexible material, lead will fit onto various types of roofs and also presents a number of design opportunities without the threat of buckling. Lead-work can be intricate, allowing you to put your own individual stamp on your house. If you’re after an aesthetically pleasing finish, lead provides the freedom of creativity to afford for just that. Any lead roofing specialist in Devon knows the wide variety of lead-work that can be found here in the West Country, from churches and domes to bay windows and lead gutters.
Lead also has excellent sealing properties, which means it acts as an effective barrier against a variety of elements and keeps your roof completely watertight. Lead flashing will help insulate your home, provide an extra layer of sound proofing, and protect against damaging radiation and atmospheric corrosion.
And did you know that lead can last as much as three times longer than other materials? It is
durable, strong and resilient due to its ability to expand and contract in extreme temperatures. Because of this, lead is ideal for homeowners with property in variable climates.
Due to its long lifespan, lead is an increasingly sustainable roofing material. In fact, properly installed lead can last for up to 200 years. Lead is also one of the most recycled metals in the world as it is regularly melted down and repurposed after use, making it a vital contribution to the reduction of carbon emissions in the construction industry.
