    Does new flashing need to be fitted?

    Roofers

    I have a flat roof extension to the rear which has lead flashing where the main house joins the roof of the extension. I am about to have 100mm of external insulation and render fitted. Should new flashing be provided on to the new render, or will the existing flashing still be ok.

    "So long as the rendering stops at the flashing it should be ok."

    "No as the waterproofing to the building will still be in check . I would suggest that the new insulation and render does not go past the lead flashing thou so if you ever have a problem with your flat roof it’s easy to repair or replace . Hope this helps"

    "Depending on how old the existing lead flashing is, see if any splits in it if there is replace with new code 4 lead."

    "It depends on the quality of the current lead, in all fairness it is best practise to replace the lead.."
