Lead Work Nelson
Lead work Nelson – JW Construction has a team of specialist lead workers for lead work incorporating lead sheet and decorative lead work particularly and specialise in preservation lead work and repairs.
Historically lead was the main material used for roofs, mainly because it provides great all round weather protection regardless of the elements it is exposed to. Lead has a chemical reaction when mixed with oxygen, water and carbon dioxide that is naturally in the air around it, this reaction forms a white crustlike film, known as ‘lead carbonate’ and this lead carbonate is one of the main reasons that lead is such a durable and long lasting roofing construction material.
Natural acidic formation created from the presence of rotting foliage, bird droppings, and sometimes the growth of moss can all contribute to lead work damage such as corrosion. This means that lead work on roofs and chimneys should always be regularly maintained.
