"Liquid Lead":

Lead prices have quadrupled, making metal theft from roofs, porches & flashings a big problem UK wide. Roofs with lots of lead end up uninsurable - one church we helped had lead stolen 3 times from the same roof in the same year and was refused insurance for a new lead roof owing to further theft risk.

Increasing security to combat further theft can be expensive, so metal-free lead substitution is growing, with some alternative materials now able to mimic the look of the metal accurately.

Hands-down, the liquid membrane system is the best alternative to lead replacement (or we wouldn't use it). It's ideal for entire roofs, lead free flashing, porches, and over-coating perished lead roofing in situ - quickly and without mess or hassle!

  • Mimics the traditional aesthetic accurately (hence it's known as "liquid lead")
  • Expands & contracts to withstand the movement of retained leadwork (unlike eg festionsibreglass)
  • Secure: The polymer material is impossible and valueless for thieves to remove
  • Significantly cheaper than lead to install, plus no more insurance
  • Polymer roofing is jointless, seamless, waterproof, fireproof, weatherproof, long-lasting and doesn't crack.
  • It's also much quicker to install - so quick that we can work anywhere in the UK and can usually finish a roof in one day!

An unbeatably good roof that pays for itself:

The cost of replacement for this listed building in Aberystwyth was just £1,822 plus VATWork was completed in just 2 days, and our high standards of health and safety, together with the roofing system's unique method of application and high spec waterproof qualities, meant tenants below stayed dry and safe - and didn't even have to move out while work was in progress!
