Lead Roofing

Lead roofs date back to Roman times and are used on old and modern buildings today. Lead is resistance to corrosion,  flexible and waterproof so it is perfect for roofs in Cornwall. The Romans used lead for pipes but nowadays most lead in the building trade is used for roofing. On modern building with tiled roofs it is predominately used as flashing around chimleys etc, but on earlier properties it was used for whole roof coverings, porches, turrets and parapet roofing.
