Brick work, Re-pointing and Leadwork

Lead has been used as a water and weatherproofing finish on buildings for many centuries and it is extremely durable and ideal for cutting and shaping by hand.  Lead can be used as a main roof covering or to create flashings, box gutters, valleys or to create junctions between walls and the main roof. 

However, over time lead works and flashings will deteriorate possibly causing a leak in your roof.  In order to resolve this common problem it is necessary to strip away the existing lead and replace it.

As well as lead works A E Higgs Roofing and Building also carry out re-pointing and re-tiling works where necessary.
