Lead is a material which is used in a number of capacities on traditional buildings such as detailing and flashing around chimneys and roof ridges, as well as roof covering for both pitched and flat roofs. While lead can be melted, cast, jointed and decorated, it requires being properly worked and maintained by skilled professionals in order to ensure long lasting and safe results. Delivered by Alasdair White from Murdoch Award winning firm John Fulton, this CPD will discuss the proper way to survey lead on traditional roofs, and how to recognise maintenance and repair needs.
