Chimneys

& Leadwork

Even the most solid built chimney will eventually become weathered after years of exposure to the elements. The pointing and leadwork of the chimney will deteriorate first, which can impact the structural integrity of the chimney stack.

Chimney leadwork

Leadwork is very common in chimneys on both commercial and residential buildings throughout London. You will see lead being used on all manner of buildings including churches, offices, homes, and factories.

Lead is commonly used because it forms an effective and durable waterproof bridge between the roof and the rest of the building. When it comes to chimneys, lead flashing is often used to prevent water from entering gaps around the chimney and making its way into the roof structure.

There are several benefits obtained by using lead. It is an extremely reliable material with excellent durability and eco friendly qualities. Lead is also flexible, which means it can be moulded to fit awkward spaces and follow the contours of curved structures. These attributes have made lead a popular choice in both modern and old buildings. You will often find lead used in combination with brickwork, concrete, clay, and slate tiled roofs.

We employ a team of experienced tradesmen with exceptional leadworking skills. They can incorporate lead into lead roofs, chimney flashings, wall flashings, gullies, gutters, ridges, hips, saddles, and more. Our tradesmen always follow several rules when working with lead:

  • We ensure that all fixings hold the lead segments in the correct position regardless of any thermal movement that may occur. We use expansion joints to ensue the lead flashings remain intact and watertight.
  • All of the products we use have a similar life expectancy to lead. We will use copper, brass, or stainless steel nails and screws, which will last as long as your lead components. This ensures that you won’t need to repair any sections prematurely due to nails or screws failing.
We often use lead for:
  • Cover flashings and aprons
  • Weatherings for cornices and parapets
  • Gullies and pitched valleys which remove water form the roof
  • Hoppers, downpipes, and brackets
  • Lead slates and saddles
  • Flat and pitched roof coverings
  • Bespoke chimney aprons and chimney backs
  • Lead gutters
  • Dormer window roof coverings
  • Bay window roof coverings
  • Lead hips and ridges.
  • Lead Flashings
