Lead is a long-life building material, lasting longer and ageing better than its synthetic substitutes.

Reasons roofers use lead:

  • Easy to use
  • Durable
  • Flexible
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • In addition, lead is 100% recyclable, making it one of the most sustainable building materials.

Which lead code do I need?

Use our table in this blog post to find out which lead code you need for your project. Depending on what you’re using lead for, it’s best to use the British Standard to assess which thickness you need. If like Calder lead, your lead is compliant with BSEN12588 then the thickness of the code you order won’t deviate more than +/- 5%.
