Hello all, first post on here so hope I'm in the right place! Firstly, aplogies for any incorrect/incoherent terms, I'm pretty much making it up as I go... Recently moved into an upper floor flat, converted from a large detached house some 30 years ago. At the front of the house there are two large dormer windows. I believe the actual windows have been replaced fairly recently (within 10 years), and whilst there's nothing actually wrong with the dormers, they just look a bit shabby. The wood around the outside of the windows (exterior) definitely needs replaced as its starting to rot. Also the sides of the dormers are clad in bare lead, which doesn't look very appealing. What are my options re covering or removing the lead? Ideally if I was to be replacing the wooden fascias, I'd like to have similar wood over the top of the lead... is that possible? Or do I need to rip the lead off, sell it, and start again with another type of weatherproofing? Thanks in advance! Gavin
