Lead Uses a History

Lead has been used from as early as 8,000 years ago, and became a vital material for everyday life during roman times for pipes, lining baths, coins, statues and even as a wine flavour!

Because of its excellent corrosion resistance, it became known as the best material for constant weather protection and has been used in roofing for at least 2000 years.

Lead, again because of its renowned longevity and workability, it has been used for pipes and guttering for thousands of years. It weathers very evenly over hundreds of years and leaves you with an attractive and elegant look about your property. Almost anything is possible with the sand casting technique, from a simple date stamp to an ornate family crest.

Bespoke Hopper heads and down pipes can add a personal touch to guttering systems. With the option of dates, motifs, initials and any shape or profile of borders.

Ornaments such as planter, urns and water features are popular as a permanent and attractive addition to gardens. These items have been know to last well over 500 years.

Cast name plates and house signs can be custom made with a variety of boarders and lettering.
