Lead Roof Tips

Use plastic or wooden tools to clear snow as this will prevent damage to lead work.

Abutments are the most vulnerable areas of the building fabric and usually occur where one part of the building meets another. Usually lead or zinc flashings are used to protect the joint from the weather. Inspect flashings to check that they are in good condition, without holes or splits.
