The Traditional Metal Roofer Directory

Training at the Lead Sheet Training Academy

Are you looking for a lead or hard metal worker that has been professionally trained? Then look no further than the Traditional Metal Roofer Directory.

Everyone included in the Directory has undertaken training at the LSTA (or what was formerly the Lead Sheet Association) and their level of attainment in either lead and/or hard metals is shown by the number against their name.

If you are a contractor, architect or specifier looking for a metal roofer that has undertaken specialist training this Directory is a great starting point.

If you are a member of the public who needs lead or hard metal work done as part of a roofing job, you can check here to find one or see if the company you are using have any specialist on their books.

It is important to remember that whilst a lot of general roofing contractors and individuals do have experience of metal roofing it does require specialist skills to install lead and hard metal so you should always what experience the company you are proposing to use has.

Those included in the Directory have not paid for inclusion, the administration is covered by the cost of the training courses they have undertaken.

Whilst the LSTA has trained those included in the Directory, we are not able to take any responsibility for the work they undertake, and we recommend that current references are taken up to ensure you know what you are getting.
