Leadwork on both historic and modern buildings is a common sight in Edinburgh. Lead is normally used on flashings – joins between sections such as the roof tiles and chimney – to ensure everything remains wind & watertight. Lead has long been popular for this type of job because it’s extremely durable, weatherproof and looks aesthetically pleasing. Even before the availability of sheet lead, craftsmen shaped lead into flashings because they didn’t need replacing frequently.
