Lead Roofing & Flashing Work

Many buildings feature lead roofs as it’s one of the best materials available for keeping moisture out and protecting building features, such as dormer windows. But finding a quality company for lead roofing installation and flashing can be a challenge.

That’s where A Wilson can help.

Working predominantly with rolled lead sheet and sandcast lead sheet, we have extensive experience across a range of lead roofing projects, including smaller flat roofs, new construction work, lead flashings, dormer roofs, and larger roofing areas. We even work on monument refurbishment.

The Lead Advantages


While lead roofing is not as common today as it was in the past, it is still extremely popular because of all the advantages that it brings. For starters, it’s more durable than practically any other roofing material available, which is why churches often use it for their roofs. It’s also more carbon-friendly than many other options because it is 100 per cent recyclable. Lead, essentially, never breaks down, allowing you to use it over and over again. It’s also surprisingly economical over long stretches of time – 65 years or more.

Lead roofs can last an astonishing 500 years with the right care. A Wilson Roofing helps you source lead for your roof and installs it according to professional standards. We believe in working with the natural properties of the material, never forcing it, allowing it to protect your property for years to come. For traditional flashings and roofing, call our team today and find out more about using this incredible material for your roof.

This is at least the third time I’ve used A Wilson Roofing and, yet again, they did an excellent job. This time the work was to replace a skylight in a loft and since the property was mid terrace, everything had to be carried through the house (including the needed scaffolding). The work was prioritised because the old skylight was leaking and the carrying through of scaffolding and gear, and all the work went smoothly. This was much appreciated as this is a tenanted property, and my tenants are good people.I asked A Wilson to do this work not only because they do a good job – but also because they have skilled sensible people managing their teams of roofers and scaffolders. This makes it easy to have realistic conversations about the work and expectations and I don’t end up trying/failing to micromanage the actual workers. That means a lot to me.

We had a newly built pitched roof over our small front extension / garage conversion back in September. The team from A Wilson (Cristian in particular) were incredibly flexible and helped guide and advise us to ensure we got what we wanted. They were reliable and I would recommend them to anyone considering roof or small building works.

I was recommended to this company and was not disappointed. From the prompt inspection of the roof damage to sending me the quote (the following day) they were extremely professional, informative and friendly. The work carried out was of a very high standard and was completed within the timeframe they had quoted.I would definitely use them again and would have no hesitation in recommending them.
