GRP Simulated Lead

As an approved Topseal installer, we believe that Topseal's simulated lead solution is one of the best that money can buy, both in terms of quality and longevity.

The Topseal fibreglass roofing system is used extensively as lead substitute for lead roofing, gutter linings and various complex architectural detail work. For listed buildings Topseal can also be used to simulate rolled joints without seams.

Simulated lead solutions are not subject to theft in the same manner as real lead.

Colour matching can be achieved by using a topcoat with a lead grey or copper green finish providing like-for-like appearance and long lasting performance with a guarantee of up to 40 years.

Simulated Lead

A Modern Alternative to Lead

More and more property owners are realising that there is now a modern alternative to traditional lead flashing and valleys. This comes in the form of simulated lead.

Simulated lead offers a number of advantages over lead. It's free from toxic water runoff that's associated with lead and it deters theft due to its low effective scrap value.
