Sand Cast LeadLead Roofers in Surrey - Angelroofing Ltd

This lead is traditionally cast by hand all as the Romans did many years ago. This is used on many ancient buildings including church work, mansion houses and many English Heritage jobs. Many ornamental features and rainwater systems were carried out in sand cast lead many years ago. We pride ourselves in carrying on this tradition. This material has also been used for the lining of coffins.

 

Milled LeadLead Roofers in Surrey - Angelroofing Ltd

This has increasingly been used over the years, especially on building sites where much thin lead flashing is carried out (codes 3 4 and 5). It is also increasingly now used on public buildings and house extensions/bays. This material comes up to a maximum of code 8.

 

 

Lead Flashing’sLead Roofers in Surrey - Angelroofing Ltd

In most cases a cavity tray works in conjunction with a lead flashing at a roof/wall abutment. The cavity tray protects the inside of the outer leaf and the cavity and the lead flashing protects the face of the outer leaf and the junction between the roof covering and the wall.

Machine Cast LeadLead Roofers in Surrey - Angelroofing Ltd

This lead has had a constant increase in use over the last 20 years or so. It is also used much as milled lead in that it can be cast quite thinly. This is the cheapest way of laying lead in our opinion.

Underlays

Geotextile, building paper and sometimes a chalk slurry if a worry with regard to tannic acid attack is suspected.

Remember when fixed correctly lead will have a lifespan in excess of 100 years.
