    Grp onto lead

    I have a roof coming up were it is hipped on 3 sides against the rear of the property with a flat section 1.8mx3.6m. No my question is where the tiles finish at the top do i just lead onto them and 100mm onto the deck then grp onto the lead or is there a bette r way of finishing this off? Can i even grp onto lead with the amount of movement?

    You could do that but you must bring the fibreglass well over the edge of the roof as it wont stick particularly well to the lead. Alternately use a "D300" trim (we do sell these extended fillet trims) used upside down would be a cheaper option.

    GRP onto lead is simple and working with architects who love lead details we do a lot of this.

    You just need to ensure the lead has not been oiled. Score it to death, crisis cross with a sharp blade, then apply G4. Let this "tack off" then apply your fibreglass in the normal manner.
