Lead work to new tiled roof structure at Whitchurch Nr Goring on Thames

The new tiled roof that I installed required extensive lead-lined gullies to prevent rainwater access and deterioration of the supporting fabric. The leadwork is hand dressed in the traditional manner using code 5 lead which was bossed and hot lead welded to seal all joints. The work was completed to the clients satisfaction in approx 4 days.

This image will show you all the traditional hand work skills required to form the lead into the contours of the roof, click the image to enlarge for more detail.
