Pitched Roofing

Traditional Pitched roofing is the oldest and most efficient way of making any structure weather tight. Due to its pitched construction it is easy to water proof as there is never any sitting water. This also makes it easy to repair. Pitch roofs have an excellent insulating quality too.

With a vast range of slates and tiles to choose, from fast fitting large interlocking concrete tiles to the more traditional plain tiles, manmade slates to traditional natural slate. Precise lead work ltd can help you choose a product that will enhance the aesthetics of your property/project and suit any budget and timescale.

Whichever pitched roofing product you choose, sticking to the best industry practice our roofers can remove your old roof disposing of waste in a safe, environmentally friendly manner and reroof, fitting brand new treated battens and fitting the new more sustainable breathable felt membrane. We guarantee you will be happy with the workmanship and minimal disruption of our work and be satisfied with the finished product.


Lead is one of oldest roofing materials, favoured for its versatility and durability. Lead can be shaped into almost anything making the hardest of roofing details easy to weather tight. When fitted correctly lead will last multiple life times. Lead, although expensive initially, will outperform any other product on the market making it a very economic choice with great aesthetics giving your property/project a very traditional feel.

Sadly, the craft and skills required for fitting leadwork are on the decline and it’s worth noting that lead when fitted incorrectly can fail within the first ten years. Rest assured that at Precise Lead Work Ltd we have two specialised lead workers who have both completed 3-year apprenticeship schemes with the LSA (lead sheet association) meaning they are highly skilled at working with lead.

Precise Lead Work Ltd was founded as a lead specialist company, but has now also branched out over the last 6 years into all aspects of roofing. Needless to say, if you require any leadwork, look no further than Precise Lead Work Ltd.

Flat Roofing

Flat roofing is the popular choice for garages and extensions. It provides a fast, cost effective way of constructing a roof which can be easily insulated. Flat roofs can prove to be problematic however when the product used for water proofing is not fitted correctly.

At Precise Leadwork Ltd we have extensive knowledge and experience of flat roofing, whether it’s an existing flat roof that needs re-roofing, or a brand new roof - we can promise a professional job that will last!

Roofing systems offered in-house:

  • GRP fibre glass (product provides a seam less smooth finish not prone to moss or mess and usually comes with a 20 year manufactures guarantee). Drawbacks: cannot be fitted in even the lightest rain.
  • Torch on felt (most cost affective product and can be fitted in light rain and usually comes with a 15 year manufacturer's guarantee).

Roof Repairs

Over time, flat roofs, pitched roofs and rooflines, suffer a great deal of wear and tear. Weather it be storm damage or just general exposure to the elements, roofs can become damaged and begin to let water in.

We appreciate the damage a water leak can do and offer a vast range of repairs. We will aim to have a team member out to you if you are local to Chelmsford within 24 hours to assess the problem and provide a quotation to fix it. Quite often, with smaller repairs we will be able to complete on the same day.
