Code 4 lead flashing, available to buy online from ERoofing, is the next grade up from the thinnest flashing and can be used for slightly more robust applications. The main difference between code 3 and code 4 lead flashing is that while one’s usage is mostly limited to being used as a soaker against a chimney wall, the other is more flexible.
This is because code 4 lead flashing is 1.8mm thick, which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum length that can be laid of code 3 lead flashing as it is more resistant to thermal movement. We stock multiple sizes of code 4 lead flashing, including 150mm, 200mm, 300mm x 3m, and 300mm x 6m, amongst others.
Code 4 lead flashing is a suitable solution for new and vintage buildings. In the case of new-builds, code 4 offers a sustainable option for roofs without the risk of skimping on quality and/or going overboard on budget, as the price of lead increases along with the weight and thickness.
Older buildings, particularly listed buildings, will demand like-for-like replacements that do not significantly alter the property’s aesthetics. The materials used in older buildings also mean that code 4 lead flashings make for the best solution because of their robust nature.
Code 4 lead flashing is generally the most widely used for roofing, which means that you aren’t likely to go far wrong when buying rolls. If you are uncertain as to whether it is code 4 lead flashing that you require or a thicker solution, the ERoofing team will be more than happy to lend advice.
As is the case with most of our products, you can purchase for next-day delivery from ERoofing. This means that the delays in starting your project are kept to a minimum and, if you are buying to replenish stock, then work need not be stopped for too long.
