Lead-free flashing is the modern day alternative to traditional lead flashing. It can be used in the same way as lead, such as on chimneys and abutments, however, it has great benefits for both roofers and homeowners. Lead substitute is faster and easier to use and install than lead, and, as it weighs less, it's so much easier to move around. It comes in a choice of colours to let you quickly create a professional finish. A big plus is it has no scrap value, meaning there's no risk of theft.
