Lead Casting is a process that is thousands of years old and yet hardly any part of it has changed since the Roman times.
Why Choose Lead?
A few facts about lead and why it is the best choice for your roof:
Lead has been known to last for more than 500 years
Lead is the most recycled and recovered building material in use today.
It will last longer and age more beautifully than any of its synthetically produced substitutes.
Lead is more environmentally friendly than alternatives made by the petro-chemical industry - even its reclamation is energy efficient.
Today’s alternatives can fail within 20 years. The types of material used and the methods of manufacture mean they are destined for early replacement - this means they have both a negative cost and environmental impact.
Sustainable development is at the heart of most government’s environmental policies these days. By maximising recycling, minimising waste and through sheer longevity, Lead is unbeatable as an example of a sustainable building material.
Its fail rate is negligible and its resistance to corrosion by the atmosphere means that Lead Sheet will outlast any alternative building materials making it best value, both in monetary and environmental terms.
As Lead naturally binds to the soil, the combination of correctly designed roofs with gutters with drainage points plus the virtually undetectable discharge levels means that bio-availability within the eco-system is extremely limited.
So while Lead may at first appear marginally more expensive, in terms of longevity and ecology, it still offers best value, and of course, also has a far greater aesthetic value.
