Lead In Construction

Lead has been used successfully in the construction industry for a wide variety of applications over hundreds of years.

Architects are attracted to it for its durability, flexibility, corrosion-resistance, low maintenance requirements, suitability for complex detailing and cost-effectiveness.

When installed correctly it provides a high visual aesthetic for both traditional and contemporary buildings.

Historic Buildings

Virtually all the sheet Lead we produce today is continuously formed on a roll-casting (DM) machine.

Whilst we maintain the capability for sand casting, the DM lead provides consistency of thickness and surface texture. We maintain stocks of sheet Lead for immediate dispatch.

Our craftsmen form and burn Lead using traditional methods. We can produce bespoke outlets and junctions in addition to the casting of hoppers and finials to match existing designs.
