Lead work

We are experts in sheet lead work, a highly specialised area of property development, and a service in which it is increasingly difficult to find skilled practitioners – especially for large-scale projects.

Lead flashing and roofing is a key component in the construction process for reducing the intrusion of moisture into a building. The installation of sheet leading is a highly skilled task which requires a lot of experience and expertise. When the job is done properly the results can be very impressive and long lasting – surviving decades of weather.

Lead has been used as a building material for hundreds of years, and has proven itself over time to be an effective, reliable and indispensable material. However, the installation of sheet lead requires the skills and abilities of an experienced technician. 

At Barkwell Plumbing and Heating we have team members who are specifically trained in this area, including the latest legislation on the application of lead sheet and all Health & Safety concerns – meaning that we can always be relied upon to provide a conscientious and thorough service that is 100% reliable and trustworthy.
