The effects of wear and tear on lead flashing
As discussed in a previous blog, lead flashing is installed to aid the roofs water drainage system. It covers any join where there is a potential for water entry such as chimneys, valleys and dormers. As shown in our you tube video, age, wear and tear can cause cracks in lead flashing. This damages the integrity of the flashing and creates an entry point for rain water. Water entering your ceiling space is cause for concern as it can cause water damage to the internal structure and plaster of your home.
The best and most reliable way to repair this is to remove the old lead flashing and replace it with a new one.
