Buy roofing lead at the cheapest prices
Milled lead sheets have been produced by rolling since the mid 1700's and by the turn of this centre, rolled (milled) lead sheeting was being used as an alternative to sand cast sheet for roofing and weathering.
How long will my lead last for?
Lead flashing has been known to last as long as 500 years. The performance per pound (£) results over decades means that roofing lead is no more expensive that the 'lower priced' alternatives. Lead lasts for three times as long as most man-made alternatives and has been applied to churches, offices, factories, public buildings and homes throughout the UK due to it's ease of us.
Lead is a natural source material which means it's environmentally friendly. It is one of the most recycled and recovered building materials in use today. Lead offers a lower carbon footprint and lower sustainbility than any lead alternative and has been used as a building material for many centuries.
How does it work?
Milled lead sheets are formed by passing a slab of refined lead back and forth on a rolling mill between closing rollers, now controlled by computers to obtain an exact predetermined thickness. The sheet is then slit to width and cut to length for final packing and distribution.
