What are Lead Flashing Alternatives?
Although lead has traditionally been used to make flashings, lead flashing alternatives are becoming more popular with many people. Lead flashing alternatives are safer to handle than lead, and lighter so can be used where a roof won’t support heavier lead flashing. They are self adhesive so can be quickly and easily fitted by the DIY enthusiast or the tradesman, and avoid the need for tacking to fix them in place. And as the lead flashing alternatives are not valuable for re-sale or scrap like lead they reduce the risk of theft and damage to your roof.
Choosing your Lead Alternatives
Our range of lead flashing alternatives includes BBA certified products from Easy Trim available in both smooth and textured materials that both mimic the attractive appearance of lead, and reproduce its water resistance and durability (up to 20 years). They are easy to shape around and fit tightly to joints, as well as being self adhesive, so it is easy to ensure excellent performance.
