Danelaw® flashings come in many types and styles, but are generally strip products or at details that form a junction between construction elements to make them weathertight.
The more commonly known roof flashings, are apron flashings sometimes known as abutment flashings, cover flashing, step flashings, step and cover flashings and chimney flashings, but they can also include pitched roof valley linings, secret gutters and flashing for joining pitched roofs with different covering types.
Soakers are also used where a slated or double-lap plain tiled pitched roof abuts a wall, usually in conjunction with a flashing.
Our tried-and-tested range of durable flashing and soaker products will ensure your roof remains watertight. From our market leading Dry Fix Valley Troughs and traditional open valley troughs, through to our continuous abutment soakers/Contisoakers™ and both mortared, dry fix Bonding Gutters and continuous slate verges all made from glass-reinforced polyester (GRP), making them superior to plastic alternatives and an ideal lead replacement solution.
There are lots of benefits of selecting flashing products made from GRP. Firstly, when compared with lead, GRP products take half as much time and cost to install. This is partly because they are so lightweight and easy to handle, and also because they are preformed to the required shape.
GRP roofing products are grey and look similar to lead when installed, but they do not hold the same value, so deter criminals from theft and the associated damaging to the property. GRP does not streak or stain, and we offer a 30-year service life guarantee for all our GRP flashing products, which ensures the roof will remain leak-free for years to come.
