BENEFITS OF LEAD WORK
Using lead is totally green, and is an investment to your property with longevity of this traditional metal. Some of its benefits are:
Carbon Footprint – The carbon footprint of lead, compared with other hard metals, is extremely low making it a very environmentally friendly material.
Lifespan – Its lifespan also means it lasts a generation without having to be replaced – on average more than three times longer than other proprietary flashing products.
Recyclable – There is an established recycling infrastructure so almost 100% of the waste can be re-used.
Longevity – Lead’s longevity means that architects can safely use it in designs needing to comply with Euro code requirements for a 60 year design life.
No Delays – Lead installation is not impacted by damp or cold weather conditions, thereby minimising project delays.
Labour – Working with lead is a highly skilled job and will more likely be undertaken by skilled tradesman, thereby minimising the risks of employing unskilled labour using other products.
Economic Benefits – The economic benefits of using lead also came through strongly. Over a 40 year period lead can be up to 50% cheaper than manmade flashing products and over 65 years it is almost 100% cheaper.
