What is Lead Roofing?
Lead roofing consists of sheets of lead material which are attached to the surface of a roof. It may take the form of square, rectangular, or oval-shaped tiles which may lie adjacent to one another, or overlap slightly. This material may also have slightly raised ridges running throughout it. Solid castings can also be made to cover uniquely-shaped structures or even domes. When first laid, lead roofing is typically black; however it lightens to a weathered grey colour over time.
Is Lead Roofing Safe?
One of the biggest concerns that people normally have when considering lead roofing is safety. Whilst exposure to lead paint and dust can be harmful, lead roofs do not pose the same hazards to occupants of a building. This is due largely in part to the amount of distance they are away from the people inside them. Lead roofing poses relatively little danger to the workers that install it too, provided the proper protective equipment is worn whilst doing so. There is also very little runoff that might get into ground water, so having rain hit this type of roof does not pose a hazard to local drinking water either.
