Perhaps see if you can change the windows to top hinged?

Lead is the luxury option these days. They could have done it with some horrible roofing felt that would have looked bad and needed replacing some time ago.

I would avoid getting some random roofer to fix this. Try and find someone registered with the Lead Sheet Association or the Lead Contractors Association..

Looks a very good job.

To be honest it doesn't look as though it's dropped.

Has the deck bowed/sunk a tad ?

I would look at getting it dressed and then trim or roll the bottom edge.

If there are signs of wet getting in obviously it needs to be looked at

Once you get it looked at, give a clean and polish it up with patination oil, it will look amazing.

Yes, this looks like it was a good job until it slipped and I would advise you get it repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Lead used as fascia
Sep 22nd, 2017, 10:25am
 
Hi

Just want to get some thoughts from other regarding a problem I have.  

When our building was constructed, lead was used as roof covering and fascia on the bay roof.  The top is fine but the fascia has started to drop so that the top windows cannot open.  

Should lead have been used as fascia?  

You can view a photo Below.
