Common leadwork issues

Lead flashing damage

Lead roofing is exposed to the elements and endures wind and rain, which can lead to gradual damage over time.

Water stains from roofing

If stains appear on the ceiling or walls, this is a sign that water has infiltrated your chimneys, vents, or roof intersections.

Leaks and dampness

Leadwork helps many roofs to achieve correct waterflow. If misplaced, your lead flashing could fail to redirect water away from vulnerable areas of your roof.

Rust or corrosion

Presence of moisture and the expansion and contraction of lead can lead to rust and corrosion, causing the metal to become brittle and break.

Lead roofing repairs

Don’t postpone your lead roofing repairs as it is important to act promptly if you suspect that your roof has become unstable and unsafe. Tending to repairs swiftly is crucial to helping prevent hazardous and costly issues.

If you do notice any issues or have any concerns around your lead roofing or chimney leadwork, you should address them promptly by contacting a professional lead roofing specialist to avoid further deterioration.

Excellent service

My hot water stopped working in the morning, I called Pimlico and within 30 minutes the plumber had arrived. Lee was very cheerful and competent. He diagnosed the issues, purchased the required parts, and had everything installed & working before the end of the day. Great!

Great service from Pimlico

We needed a plumber to rectify a leak under the kitchen sink. The technician turned up exactly on time and put in a full days work. As part of this he replaced the incoming pipework, valves and flexible hoses which was necessary. His workmanship was excellent and we now have a proper, well laid out and installed water & waste system as opposed to the spaghetti that existed before. Service was excellent as it has been on previous occasions when we have used Pimlico.

Quality craftsmanship and great customer service

I have used Pimlico Plumbers for a few jobs in the past few years (mostly plumbing and electrical). Their workers are always polite, friendly, and considerate. They take care of your property and belongings (e.g. taking their shoes off in the house, covering/protecting surfaces, and cleaning after the job). Their work is thorough, of quality, and they keep you up to date through out the process. I highly recommend Pimlico Plumbers.

Lead roofing FAQs

In general, it can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to complete depending on the size and complexity of the job.

Lead roofing is a roof covering made entirely from lead. Meanwhile, lead flashing safeguards roof areas like chimneys, vents, and intersections from potential vulnerabilities.

Lead roofing is durable and resilient and can last for many years depending on conditions such as the environment. Therefore, it’s very important to have your lead roof inspected by a professional roofer at least once every 5 years. This will help to identify any potential problems and also provide ample time for replacement where necessary.
