Lead is a heavy, malleable and soft metal. White when freshly cut, lead quickly turns to a dull grey once oxidised.
Lead has many uses outside the roofing industry such as being used for batteries and weights but is manly used within the construction industry as a roofing material. Some of its uses are:
- Building a gulley or valley
- Used as a step flashing against brickwork to keep a watertight seal e.g. a chimney
- Sealing gaps or forming a watertight joint
- Gutter lining
- Artwork and detail
Sold in the form of lead rolls, milled lead has been used on roofs for over a century and still remains a firm favourite with roofers today. Even with the introduction of numerous lead substitutes on the market.
