Make sure you use a Lead work specialist
Lead has been used as a roofing material for over 200 years and is still in use today. Repairing and restoring lead work requires a lead work specialist who can accurately identify the problem and use their expertise to repair or if necessary renew the faulty area.
Lead flashing around chimneys and guttering or at junctions between roofs are problematic and should be tackled by a qualified craftsman. Particularly in cases where it is necessary to use heat to repair the area.
Arranging an inspection report for your roof if you are concerned about its condition is an excellent first step. Engaging a company that can then carry out any roof repairs will save time and the need to duplicate work.

Roof Repairs in Tunbridge Wells
Small leaks can cause big problems, dealing with them right away can prevent mould, rotting, destroyed insulation and damaged ceilings. If you have water stains that extend across ceilings or run-down walls, the cause is probably a leaky roof and should definitely be taken care of sooner rather than later.
Penetrations in the roof are the most common source of leaks, interrupted shingles, plumbing and roof vents are some of the causes of water damage. Look for black marks, mould and water-stains to find the source. If you are struggling to find the problem area, try wetting the roof from the outside with a garden hose and have someone wait inside for water to come through. Ensuring things like roof vents are properly secured to the roof with no damage to the rubber casing or missing screws can be a simple solution to preventing leaks.
