What do you need to know about lead roof installation or repair?
Lead roofing can be high quality, but be aware that the raw materials are much more expensive than other alternatives. The price of installing a lead roof will, of course, be calculated based on the size and type of the roof, and will also need to cover the cost of removing the old roof. You should be expected to pay at least around £5,000 for installing a new lead roof, not including the removal cost. The cost of repairing a lead roof will vary depending on the nature and scale of the problem. Fixing a leak would typically cost between £80 and £200 for a normal roof, though once again the price of lead tiles can add a lot to your bill. Getting an assessment and quote should be free, so feel free to collect several to compare and choose from.
Before making your choice, look at your options and make sure they have adequate qualifications and experience. Remember the cost of the lead itself; it may seem like a good idea to go for the cheapest price, but if your tradesman is not properly qualified then they may waste expensive materials, to say nothing of doing a sub par job. Roofers will typically have experience with different materials, but feel free to ask them about how many lead roofs they have worked on in the past, as well as whether they can provide customer feedback. Finally, your tradesmen should be properly protected against accidental damage and liabilities; roofing can be a dangerous job, after all.
