Lead roofing is one of the oldest and most durable materials and has been known to last for over two hundred years. It is commonly applied to heritage buildings to replace existing roofs cappings and flashings. There are certain considerations that need to be taken into account when installing and working with lead roofing.
Westwood roofingâ€™s team of professional tradesman are led by over 30 years of experience in roofing and will take the appropriate considerations with lead roofing including; the physical and mechanical properties of lead sheeting, contact properties with other materials, bossing welding, and jointing methods, material dimensions, support and fixing methods and the prevention of corrosion.
Despite Sydney architecture bearing very few historical characteristics compared with historical buildings around the world, there are still many heritage buildings throughout the city and New South Wales regions that require lead roofing. Lead sheet is commonly used as a weatherproofing material in buildings due to lead's high resistance to corrosion and its historical properties.
We apply lead sheet to various buildings, both new and old, on flat and pitched roofing, flashings, gutters, parapets and all other lead detail work. We can also replace existing roofs, cappings and flashings on roofs that require lead sheet.
No roof is too large when it comes to lead roofing. Our skilled tradesmen are dedicated to finishing the job with the highest quality, building new lead roofs and restoring beautiful old buildings to their original condition.
