Lead flashing is an essential part of any roofing installation and works to prevent water leaking into the building through a joint. Lead flashing can be used around key joints such as chimneys, vent pipes, walls that but up to a roof and door and window openings. Lead flashing round a chimney is very important and needs to be done to a high standard as water leaks can be a problem if the lead flashing is damaged or has been poorly fitted.
When choosing which type of lead flashing to buy consideration needs to be made for the level of malleability required and the resistance needed to avoid splits that may occur because of expansion and contraction caused by temperature changes. Code 4 lead flashing is the most popular due to the good compromise it offers between resistance and malleability and performance. Code 3 lead flashing is often chosen for lead soakers as it is thinner and lighter.
Lead flashing has been around for a long time and is a tried and tested way of ensuring water damage doesn't occur. Used for centuries lead is easy to work with and can last for decades.
