The natural properties of lead make it particularly suitable for roof coverings and detail work. The durability of lead means it can be cut, worked, welded and used in all aspects of roofing work. Lead has been used for centuries and when laid correctly will have a lifespan in excess of a hundred years. Lead weathers extremely well and requires very little if any maintenance during its lifespan.
Our highly skilled team of lead professionals will undertake all aspects of lead work including canopies, complete flat roofs, dormers, finals, flashings, gutters, porticos and the general waterproofing of your property.
Contrary to public perception, lead sheets pose no risk to the environment, even when water run-off is taken into account. Nor, supposing that it is correctly applied in compliance with standard construction industry practice, will it present any risk to human beings. Provided that simple hygienic precautions are observed, people who handle significant quantities of lead do not expose themselves to occupational health risks. All of the alternative products are more damaging to the environment than lead sheet and have a higher total cost.
We work with milled lead, machine cast lead and sand cast lead. Whether you need new lead work to be done or restoration work completed, we are here to assist you.
All of our lead work is carried out by our skilled and competent lead workers who take great pride in all aspects of their work and are committed to finishing to the highest of standards. Newbury Roofing follow all current health and safety procedures and have full public liability insurance for £2 million and £10 million Employers Liability Insurance.

“From start to finish the new lead roof you fitted went very smoothly and it looks fabulous and really enriches the look of the property.
The lead workers themselves were pleasant and helpful and made sure of minimum disruption as the work progressed. The quality of their work was of the highest standard.
Having looked at several different companies before giving you the contract, we are very pleased that we chose you. We would have no hesitation in recommending Newbury Roofing.”

It has been a good experience dealing with a company who are as helpful and professional as yours, particularly at a time when we have felt let down by other people we have dealt with. We will have no hesitation in recommending your company.”
“We would like to thank you and your team for all your hard work, excellent service and high quality of work in the refurbishment of our lead roof.
