Sometimes a flat roof can be the only way achieve the required shape of a functional roof section. The material for the job is often a difficult decision to make.

Lead gives you an unrivalled life span along with an attractive visual aspect. Unlike bitumen and fibreglass flat roofs that over a couple decades degrade to look tired and worn, lead weathers to its signature grey finish and remains effective for generations. For this reason, lead is chosen to transform a flat roof from a functional roof section to an aesthetically pleasing feature of a building.
