Lead is a traditional roofing material that is used in many aspects of roofing. Lead comes in a number of sizes and different codes, the code relates to the thickness of the lead. It starts at code 3 and goes up to any desired thickness.
As a guide, Code 3 lead is used for lead soakers, code 4 lead is used for lead cover flashings, code 5 lead is predominantly used for capping, cladding and lead bays. The codes above this are used for any bays that are of a larger length or width or specifically specified by a designer, architect or surveyor.
