Architectural Roofing Services undertook heritage roof repair and restoration works at Australian Museum Sydney installing leadwork, slate, and copper roof to its former glory.
For every leadwork roof project we undertake, we ensure to use the premium grade lead flashing supplied by Midland Lead Australia.
A leadwork roofing  is durable, 100% recyclable and it typically lasts over 100 years. Lead is a sustainable and environmentally friendly product too. A leadwork roof is stylish and practical and is a long term solution.
Scope of works 
The work included supply and installation of 30kg / m2 lead sheeting for the heritage-listed Australian Museum project in Sydney.  To undertake specialized heritage roofing work, we installed copper sheeting in 0.6 mm and installed it on the front edge of the stone to provide a detailed drip groove for the lead sheeting.
Lead sheeting was then installed in 1 m sections enabling expansion and contraction along stone cornice with welted locked joints. A 30kg lead sheet fabricated by experienced leadworker turned down over front copper sheeting to form straight edge in locked joints.
The lead sheeting  installed into stone joint of heritage building and secured with lead wedges driven into stonework. Once secure lead sheeting is shaped over the front and tucked under copper clips. This process will ensure including Geo–fabric underlay will give the lead a lifetime of free maintenance and protect the heritage building for decades to come.
Once the lead has been installed and shaped over the stonework, an elastomeric joint with the back rod is installed to seal the stone lead joint from the water entry.  A coat of patination oil  was applied to newly installed leadwork to give lead sheeting a protective shine and leave building looking great again.
 Leadwork is the most durable and environmentally friendly metal to be used in your home or heritage building, as it will be value for money over a lifetime and enhance the building and protect against water entry for decades to come.
