Leadwork is an essential part of any roof, and without it your roof would not be watertight. It is your bridge between any brickwork you have and the roof system that abuts it, this most commonly on a domestic dwelling being a chimney stack. There are different procedures of how to soaker and flash your roof system against any brickwork, and this all depends on the type of tile or even slate your property has.
Secret soakers are used with slate and plain tiles (10″x6″) and these sit on top of the slate or tile 3″, (length varying)and go up the chimney 3″ and are not visible once the next slate or tile is laid on the course above. it is then flashed with either segmental or cockney flashings, folded, dressed and chased into the mortar joints of the walled abutment.
