- Correctly fitted lead sheet requires zero maintenance over its lifetime.
- Zero maintenance means lead sheet conforms with the phrase ‘fit and forget’ at least until it is time for the building to be demolished, when it can be Reclaimed, Recycled and Reused.
- ‘Wind lift’ is minimised due to lead sheet’s inherent high specific weight.
- Lead sheet compares very favourably with substitutes. Many other materials trying to mimic lead sheet fail to seal roofs effectively, so that ingress of rainwater becomes a continuous maintenance problem.
