Lead Work

Lead is one of the oldest and most durable building materials and provides roofers with great flexibility for installing complex roof details and features.

Roofing South East was born from a lead sub contract company and so is our (and especially my) speciality, love, pride and joy.

Our specialist lead installers work alongside our pitched and flat roofing operatives eliminating the hassle of sourcing and programming a separate contractor. This ensures consistency and efficiency throughout the entire project.

Rolled Lead Sheet is extremely malleable, easy to work with and hard-wearing and, as such, has protected the roofs of almost every conceivable building type for centuries.

It is the professional’s choice for a wide range of roofing applications, including flashings, valleys, gutters, dormers, hips, ridge lines as well as flat roofs and porches that require a flexible, high quality, long-lasting material with outstanding levels of protection from the elements.


Lead is the most recycled and recovered building material in use today. It will last longer and age more beautifully than any of its synthetically produced substitutes. Its resistance to corrosion by the atmosphere means that Lead Sheet will outlast any alternative building materials making it the best value both in monetary and environmental terms.

So while Lead may initially appear marginally more expensive than other materials, in terms of longevity and ecology, it still offers the best value without a doubt.
