Replacement Lead Gulley
As the building we going to work on was Grade 2 listed bulding, we had to liaise with the the local conservation officer.
Standard procedure for our guys. Once on the roof we had to strip the previous lead gulley and we soon realised where the leaks had been taking place.
Once everything had been stripped, the team proceeded to replace the lead gulley. Once it was all in place they began shaping the lead using lead beaters to mould the lead into it’s correct place with the appropriate tools. Lead Beaters, Lead snips, years of skills and plenty of elbow grease is what is required here.
A combination of a highly skilled roofer and a some Patination oil, this is the end product!
