Lead and Roofing – A Detailed Explanation
http://theivylodge.co.uk/?p=15563 Lead is a great, long-life material which has been around for centuries but few companies today have lead roofing as part of their services, due to it’s specialist nature. RT Alkin Leadwork & Roofing specialise in leadwork, understanding the material and having the skills to work with it. It can be easily dressed or welded to fit any shape of many old and modern properties such as churches, domestic homes, shops and offices as it is extremely malleable.

No matter how big or small the job, we provide a complete service which takes care of everything from patch repairs to complete replacement. We carry out all of the lead work ourselves, never using contractors, which guarantee’s the quality of our work.
The Projects section shows a portfolio of some of our lead roofing services, and we can also supply customer references on request. I’ve also added a couple of diagrams which explain the difference between the Lead Codes and the Maximum Recommended Sizes of Sections, Bays and Panels, which hopefully help to explain why we work in the way we do.
