Does your Reading property need roof lead repair or replacement?
For time to time lead can fail, especially in old houses lead fatique cracks can occur as the lead can get hot in sun and then cold it expands and contracts. This is quite normal but over time the constant expanding and contracting of the lead can cause cracks and leaks.
We often find leaks form on Bay windows that have been topped with Lead from the original build. The first sign of cracked leadwork on Bay windows or roofs is water dripping on the sill a brown stain on the ceiling or water running down the internal window.
What alternative is there to a lead on a Roof, bay window or door porch?
Increasingly these days with lead theft becoming more of a problem some people are moving away from lead, and certainly if you’re talking about small roofs or lead bays, fibreglass roofing is a viable option.
