Your roof is a piece of protection you shouldn’t take for granted. Many people who own residential homes don’t think twice about the roof above their heads, but there are a few different reasons why you should. A roof isn’t all about the shingles. Though your shingles provide the majority of protection and strength to your home, there are other items you should keep in mind too.

It’s All About the Flashings

When your roof is installed by our roofers, or provided with roof repair for that matter, you’ll be given choices of materials you’d like us to use; flashings are one of them. Understandably, when you hear lead, you tend to immediately shy away from all of the bad things we’ve heard about the material in recent news. But, it’s not as bad as you think! Here are some reasons why lead flashings may actually benefit your home more than you think:

Solid and Reliable

Lead is a great resource to use to protect your home against long-term water damage. It not only creates an excellent barrier between the structure of your home and Mother Nature, but it is made out of durable material that’s resistant to high levels of corrosion. It’s the perfect long-term solution for any homeowner wanting to protect their home from extreme weather conditions; living in Charlotte makes your home a perfect candidate for the material.

Shaping and Suppleness

Using lead is a lot easier to work with than other potential materials. It’s flexibility makes it easier to fashion it to the roof. This also means lead flashings are the perfect option for roof repairs because they’re perfect for any size project, no matter the shape of the roof.

Resilience and Reassurance

Lead has reassured builders for years. They have been used for chimneys which in our eyes, says resilience by itself. Think about it, the temperatures that surround a chimney fluctuate vividly and lead can both contract and expand which means no outside elements can get past a lead barrier.

Costs and Availability

The cost and availability of lead flashings are much cheaper and most accessible to our roofers. You won’t have to pay much for a flashings roof repair in comparison to other products we may offer. Plus, it’s a popular choice, and we receive our flashings from a reputable building supplier.
