    Loose lead flashing

    Roofers

    I have lead flashing around the sides of my Chimney, from what I can see the flashing has fallen out of place apart from the very top section, which is the only thing holding it in place. Can I get it refitted without buying new lead?

    "Yes of course it is very possible to reuse lead flashing Needs to be examined 80% of the time you can reuse"

    "Sure you can use the old lead, need to get in there and re-fill. Finally, cement it."

    "Yes, you certainly can, lead can last a very long time. The brick joint would need cleaned up though and dust free and then the lead reinserted and new mortar put in place unless you would prefer to use lead mate instead which a type of silcone for lead work."

    "You can fit the old piece a lead that is more the fitting or the person who’s doing it so you need to worry about if you fit in it yourself maybe watch a couple YouTube videos but be very careful with the Heights will get a professional in the install it that’s usually the biggest cost"

    "Hi, yes you could get it 're bedded with the leas that is already up there but it all depends on the condition of the lead, if the lead has tears or cracks in it the obviously it needs replacing and 're bedding.
    I hope this helps.

    "Hi
    It is depending on the condition of the leas flashing but if it has fallen out as described i would assume you might have to replace the lead flashing, there is lot of companies doing free quotes and advice like ourselves best to get advice from professionals in the property.
    Kind Regards
