The only way to repair with lead would to be fit sections of lead over the fractures but under the lead valley above.You can weld led,as pointed out lead burning BUT this cannot be done to lead thats fitted to valley boards.Any led burning needs to be done before fitting on a level area or at leat that how ive been shown and told how.Dont entertain these guys sumin does not add up.The cost for the repairs i mentioned aree not expensive at all.How much have you been quoted?Im over the border in carlise but it depends how far over the border 30 miles is the limit for me to venture into scotland,if thats within this range pm me or my number is on my profile.
inclined and vertical seams can be done - but it`s probably too long / oversized piece thats why it failed in a valley
I may have been misinformed.We do lead burning,we were shown by a plumber who used to work for us and it was him who said this when i wanted it done on a job,maybe he just could not be a***d to do it
would it not be a fire hazzard lead burning in a lead valley? Thats why i think its leaking,stress fractures.
