We work closely with conservation architects to carry out sympathetic repair and full restoration projects, as well as new build modern architecture where by carefully adapting century old techniques, it is possible to achieve a more contemporary finish.



Carey Lead Ltd’s highly-skilled team specialise in the restoration of heritage and ecclesiastical buildings.  Our attention to detail along with technical capability, means we can advise clients on suitable approaches to any restoration challenge. As well as drawing on our own extensive experience, we carry out work to strict, best practices and legislative guidelines.  This includes working to the Leah Sheet Association’s specification, which ensure compliance with BSEN 12588 (covering rolled lead sheet for building purposes) and BS 6915 (covering lead sheet roof and wall coverings).



Lead work is a specialist craft, so quality workmanship and customer satisfaction is very important to us. Our focus is always on delivering a project that has the vital, structural integrity, as well as the aesthetic qualities of the work.

If being green is as important to you as it is us why not let us re-cast your old lead in to new? Not only is it greener but can work out more cost effective too.
