Leadwork Derby

Lead is one of the oldest and more durable building materials and leadwork provides JLM roofers with greater flexibility for installing roof flashings, dormer & many other roofing features.

JLM Roofing carry out a wide variety of leadwork tasks using sheet lead ranging from basic roof flashings at valleys, abutments & roof penetrations to much more complex work on dormers & roofing features. The work is carried out by our roof tilers who are expertly trained in the art of correct lead installation techniques and relevant standards as well as being specialist lead installers. Our distinct ability to carry out the associated leadwork involved in the overall roof construction allows our clients to eliminate the stress of programming different trades and provides an efficient economy of scale and peace of mind gained through using a single contractor.

Lead is arguably the most recycled & recovered building material still in use today. It will last far longer and age much more beautifully than any of its synthetically produced counterparts. Its resistance to corrosion by way of weathering means that Lead Sheet will far outlast any alternative building materials making it the best value, both in a monetary and environmental sense.

So while leadwork may at first appear marginally more expensive, in terms of longevity and ecology, it still offers the best value by a distance, and of course, also has an excellent aesthetic value.
