A lead porch roof is the best option where your porch roof is flat. Flat roof porches are common on a variety of buildings both traditional and modern. Or it may be that the shape of your porch is not suitable for tiles, therefore lead is the only suitable material.

Quality Lead Required For Porch Roof

A porch roof requires a substantial amount of lead. Therefore it is important to use quality lead.

Lead has a code that refers to the weight/thickness of the lead sheet. In this instance, we used Code 6 Lead. When installed properly it is likely the lead will last as long as the building.

Code 6 lead also has more ability to withstand exposure to severe weather. The porch projects slightly from the building so this is very important.

Safety During Installation of Lead Porch

By its nature, the porch is an entrance to the property, therefore we observe correct safety procedures. Work on a porch is at first-floor level. Nevertheless, we always make sure we work safely and may need to install scaffolding.


A patination oil is applied to the lead after installation. This gives even more protection to the lead. It also enhances its appearance.

The end result is a beautiful entryway to your property.
