Lead Flashing

Lead flashing, or Lead roof flashing, refers to the pieces of metal or material implemented to prevent water from entering a building structure. It is often part of a weather-resistant system and a lead roofing structure cannot be completed without it. Lead flashing has been used in building construction for centuries, popular due to its strength and durability. 

Silk Leadwork offers cost-effective lead flashing, as part of our lead roofing services. There are different types of lead flashing available, some will be better suited to your project than others. Silk Leadwork will advise you throughout the initial stages of planning to construction and completion. Our expert team will install the lead flashing to a professional standard, as we recommend not attempting it yourself. 

Lead flashing will arrive in rolls, wound tightly before being flattened and fixed to the desired structure. It is corrosive-free and the material has been known to last up to a century before being replaced.
