Common Questions

Buying roofing materials can be daunting, especially when ordering them online. With over 40 years of experience in roofing, however, we get asked lots of questions about our growing range of lead flashing rolls. Here are some of the most common questions with answers for each! 

Which Lead Code is the Right Choice For You?

The table below shows the thickness and weight of each lead code. You can find out more about the applications each code is suitable for in our guide to lead flashing codes. Or if you’d prefer, you can always ask our customer service team for advice online or by phone on 01295 565 565.

What is the Life Expectancy of Lead Flashing Rolls?

Both British Lead and Midland lead provide 50-year warranties with all their lead rolls. However, if installed correctly by a professional and maintained throughout its lifetime, leadwork can last for much longer than 50 years.

Why Does Lead Cause Staining to Adjacent Roof Tiles?

Newly fitted lead forms a natural patina when it first comes into contact with rainfall, which can be slightly acidic. When the rainfall runs off the lead and onto adjacent roofing materials, this can cause an unsightly white stain to form. This can be avoided by treating your lead with patination oil shortly after it has been fitted. 

What Else is Needed to Fit Lead Flashing Rolls?

In addition to your lead rolls, you will need a sealant and fixings. These help to prevent any water ingress behind the lead when placed against a wall and ensures your lead remains secure for decades to come. 

Why Does the Price of Lead Fluctuate?

Like any metal or other raw material, the price of raw lead changes regularly. This is determined by availability and demand, which also changes regularly. Roofing Megastore update our prices regularly to ensure you're always making mega savings on lead rolls.
