This section aims to provide the ultimate guide
to leadwork when used for roofing.


Leadwork or lead working is a practice that has been a mainstay of roofing applications for centuries.

The use of lead sheet to create weather-tight coverings on an array of buildings is a skill. Traditionally, this skill was practiced by plumbers, or Plombiers, who worked this malleable metal to form roof coverings that were designed to last. Today, however, the craft of leadwork has taken on a new guise and those who practice it are in high demand.

This section aims to provide the ultimate guide to leadwork when used for roofing. Covering material, its uses, the application of lead and compare this to examples of our work over time. Interestingly, the use of rolled lead sheet comes with a comprehensive set of guidelines. These guidelines have been set out in The Craftsman’s Guide to Rolled Lead Sheet.
