Lead Roof on Small Rear Extension
for Residential House
This roof was created to extend a kitchen on a small mews terrace house and thus the exterior working space was tight.
The architect did not like the idea of guttering at on this small extension and therefore created this gutterless design, without considering the drip problem above the door. Therefore, in consultation with the owners, I designed and formed a small lead catch tray to divert the water away from people exiting the doorway.
The top flashing you can see in the photo above is housing a Nicholson Airtrak linear ventilator System. This style of lead roofing was in keeping with the small mews terrace and shall have an exceptionally long life expectancy.
