|Whilst we are still enjoying relatively good weather conditions, this is the time that the theft of lead is more likely to take place. Venues and charity community buildings are most vulnerable as well as dental and doctors’ surgeries.
It is also an ideal opportunity for you to carry out a simple visual inspection of your roofs, which can be done from the ground or from an upstairs window. If your inspection reveals lead has been stolen it is important for repairs to be left to the experts.
Without these checks, theft of lead only becomes apparent following a heavy downpour when the resultant water ingress indicates a problem with the roof and subsequent inspection reveals theft. By then the leak can cause further damage.
We recommend that you remain vigilant with security and general maintenance at all times but particularly when activity is heightened during the holidays.
If you do experience a loss, or need assistance in finding a tradesperson, please contact your account handler, or our claims department.
we wish you a pleasant and claim free bank holiday weekend.
