This was a straight forward part of a larger job. There were two defective sections of lead on the roof that were soon going to crack and allow water through. We cut out the defective areas and lead burned new lead patches on.

The defective areas before work commenced.

Defective lead cut out and area swept clean.

You cannot lead burn at all until all oxidization has been scraped off the lead (both the new lead and the old).

These last three pictures show the completed work. The area is now safe from leaks.
