- The LCA was formed in 1984 to prioritise quality standards in leadwork.
- The LCA now comprises over 70 specialist contractors committed to providing quality craftsmanship for their clients, supported by 15 associate members supplying materials and ancillary services.
- Members may be sole traders, partnerships or an incorporated body and utilise an employed workforce or teams of subcontractors.
- Regardless of structure, members are required to take full responsibility for the purchase and application of the lead sheet under their control.
- All members are required to work to the current Code of Practice (BS6915) and the recommendations of the Lead Sheet Association.
- An annual vetting programme provides rigorous quality control of members’ standards, through compulsory on-site inspection of workmanship and design.
- Every member is graded according to the quality and complexity of work inspected.
- Anyone failing to meet the standards set is required to withdraw from membership.
- Grades are published annually in the Directory of Specialist Leadwork Contractors and on this website.
- Every member guarantees their work for 25 years, the guarantee being administered by the LCA and insurance supported through Lloyd’s of London, on jobs over £2,500.
- The LCA is controlled by an elected Council of Member’s representatives and administered by an appointed Secretary, from an office base in West Sussex.
