The Enduring Legacy of Lead in Edinburgh Roofing and Leadwork

Lead, renowned for its unique properties, has been a staple of roofing for centuries. Its remarkable flexibility and durability make it an ideal choice for Edinburgh’s climate, where temperature fluctuations are a constant companion. In the face of unpredictable weather, lead expands and contracts, ensuring your roof remains resilient and watertight.

The longevity of lead is exceptional; when professionally applied, it can serve as a reliable roofing material for hundreds of years. In the modern era, there’s simply no equivalent material that can match lead’s performance, durability, and timeless beauty.

At Edinburgh Borders Roofing, our leadwork is executed by seasoned professionals who adhere to the latest recommendations of the Lead Sheet Association. We don’t just excel in lead roofing; we provide comprehensive structural preparations to ensure the success of your leadwork project. Feel free to contact us to discuss your project with our knowledgeable team.

Showcasing Our Expertise: Past Edinburgh Roofing and Leadwork Projects

Lead Roof System, Edinburgh


In a transformative project, we turned a traditional felt roof into a cutting-edge lead flat roof system. The process involved reconfiguring the flat roof to create a 1-8 fall, enabling the installation of a box gutter system. This upgrade included a larger outlet, a robust 110mm code 8 pipe, and an internal to external pipe system extending to the front roof slope. Additionally, an overflow system was integrated, featuring a 75mm code 8 pipe.

To ensure the structural integrity of the new lead roof system, we introduced treated timber beams, securely bolted into the main roofing joists. Notably, the center joist received extra protection with a lighter lead at code 6. This meticulous approach guarantees that our lead roof systems can withstand the most demanding conditions, with the capacity to bear over 1000 liters of water without compromise.

Lead Section – Edinburgh


In another noteworthy project, we addressed significant wear and dampness issues affecting a stone turret. Our solution involved crafting intricate leadwork using code 8 lead, adding both aesthetic charm and longevity to the turret. This meticulously designed leadwork is expected to extend the turret’s lifespan by another 45-50 years.

To achieve a waterproof finish, we integrated lead flashing (cover flashing) into the stone vertical and sealed it with a resilient grey polymastic finish, allowing for natural movement. This attention to detail reflects our commitment to preserving and enhancing the architectural elements that make Edinburgh so unique.
