The right choice for Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
Since medieval times, lead has been used as an
integral part in the design and construction of
many of our finest historical and ecclesiastical
buildings. The heaviest of the base metals. The
densest and most durable of the metals used in
building. Lead is as right for today’s architects
as it was for the ancient artisans.
Rain, storm and wind have little effect on this
apparently soft metal, which unlike many other
building materials maintains some value with age.
When a roof is re-laid, much of the original lead
can be recycled. Up to 90% of the original lead
can be reused by smelting with 25% virgin lead.
This new lead puts life back into the old material
ensuring it will continue to perform.
