The Trumpington-based customer contacted Cambridge Roofers having noticed the artificial ‘lead-alternative’ flashing tape was beginning to lift. Due to the scrap value of lead, some property developers and builders are favouring alternative materials to lead to avoid theft. Unfortunately, the quality of these substitute roofing materials is sub-standard as you can see from the accompanying pictured roofing repairs, Cambridge has may properties with such problems.
Cambridge Roofers stripped out all of the existing flashing material and replaced it with lead flashings. The roofing repairs took one day and half for two roofers with scaffolding access. The customer was extremely happy with not having to worry about deteriorating roofing materials. The works were guaranteed for 10 years.
