NHMF believes lead should be retained wherever possible. When replacement is necessary it is desirable to use lead on a like-for-like basis, with appropriate security measures installed to deter theft. We will only consider replacement with an alternative material in very rare circumstances and where you can demonstrate the clear support of the relevant statutory or ecclesiastical consents body.
The lead on our roof has reached the end of its useful life and we want to replace it with a different material because we are concerned about potential theft. Is this eligible?
