Why Does My Roof Require Lead Flashing?

he key purpose of lead flashing is to stop water seeping into the main structure.

Traditionally used as a joining or sealing agent, lead flashing is applied wherever slates or tiles meet another fitting – for example in roof valleys, chimney stacks or skylights.

Lead was the industry’s go-to substance of choice for hundreds of years as it is a relatively soft and malleable material that is easy to mould without splitting or cracking. And crucially, it will remain effective for many, many years.

Today, other metals – such as zinc – are becoming increasingly popular, providing a great alternative. At Regency Roofing we are happy to discuss the best option for you and your home.

Keeping Your Roof Dry

As Orpington’s premier choice for roofs and roofing repairs, Regency Roofing knows how important zinc or lead flashing is, no matter what style of roof. Nothing is more dangerous to a roof than water that is why lead or zinc flashing is essential for:

  • Flat roofs – flashing is the first defence against water penetration

  • Pitched roofs – where two roofs are joined forming valleys, flashing is essential to stop water pouring into the property.
