The lead free roofing solution

Lead has served our roofs well over the years, offering lasting protection and an attractive and popular finish for homes big and small. For centuries it has been used across roofs, flashing, gutters, downspouts and conductor heads. But for roofers it has required a lot of skill and careful handling to fit, not to mention the health implications.

Sadly if you’re exposed to lead for prolonged periods of time, as many roofers have been, it can cause serious health effects. I’m sure I’m not the only unlucky man to have his wife moan at him to have yet another lead test. They’re a pain, but unfortunately they come with the job (the lead test that is, not the wife).

As the price of lead continues to rise, the threat of stealing also continues. There are more and more stories of thieves climbing up onto Church roofs and stealing vast amounts of lead to make a quick buck. This, along with concerns about its health and environmental impact, mean lead-free solutions are becoming an increasingly popular alternative and I’ve got to say, if I was still working, I’d give it a go.

Take Redland’s lead-free roofing solution. The speed and ease of fitting this means professional roofers nowadays can finish the job twice as quickly and without the same level of skill and training needed to fit lead.

So, whether you’re thinking of having an extension or just fancy a new roof then look into Redland’s lead free roofing solutions. Not only is it good for the environment, it can be fitted quicker and will also prevent unwanted thieves.

Nice solutions shared here. I like your site. I have book marked it for future purposes.
