Lead rolls are a versatile, proven solution for a range of pitched and flat roofing applications. They’re compatible with a vast range of roofing materials, providing a clean, traditional aesthetic with unrivalled longevity. When installed by a qualified tradesperson, lead roll from our high-quality range will form a water-tight seal on your roof that will last for decades.
We’re partnered with top lead roll manufacturers British Lead and Midland Lead; whose high-quality products are all fully BS EN 12588:2006 compliant. This rigorous British standard ensures that every lead roll they produce has a consistent thickness throughout and the necessary level of trace elements. So you can be confident in your choice.
Our 3m and 6m lead flashing rolls are available in a choice of widths from 150mm to 1580mm. They can be used in a variety of applications, including parapets, dormers, bay roofs, flat roofs and more. We offer lead rolls in all lead codes ranging from Code 3 to Code 8, so you’re sure to find the lead you need to complete your project here.

Frequently Asked 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.
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.
