Which SS. Not steel. It doesn't lend itself well to anything but gable roofs. And the commercial looks really sucks.
Galv would rust pretty fast in the UK if I'm not mistaken. Aluminum is the same as steel, btw.

Not to mention the pitch is fine for a FL in lead or copper.

Really appreciate. Do you mean the cleat as the attached pic? I mount the cleat along the edge of the roof, just above the gutter, is that right?

Use felt if you want. It shouldn't hurt the lead, or your roof.

Nope. Top of the panel. The word 'gutter' is used in the example to denote the water flow.

Pardon my weak effort at drawing. Red is cleat, black is current dripedge, Gray is the new lead.

I figure it shouldn't cost you much more than the house did.

This is a SS roof, but many details are the same. Turning the metal up the wall. Back cleating along the wall to hold the panels in place, etc. http://www.albertsroofing.com/Tin%20Roofing%20photo_gallery.htm

Thanks. I will read carefully. I may have one more question at this moment.
To cover the whole roof from bottom to top it need three layers.
Should I use a single lead sheet to cover the left, front and right side of the roof for every layer?

I've been thinking about it. I believe two sheets for each panel/plane/area/facet of the bay window.
I'm inclined to think 18" 'tall' by the width of each pane, and 3" up the walls.

Thinking about the cleats too. I think you better make them from lead. Less chance of an edge cutting a hole through the lead. Try stretching them before installing them. It makes them a little stiffer. (Same way came is stretched when doing stained glass to make it less floppy and the window stiffer.)

Lead makes a great roof, but if it's going to get nicked again you might have to think about getting an asphalter in.
In somes places they are even taking road signs in for selling as scrap.

Did your cable TV or satellite TV provider run that cable like it is? Kind of shoddy.

Should I use anything to cover the two bridges which join different plane, one between right and front plane, the other between left and front? It sounds a big job although it is a small area.

There are several deserted cables left by former owner during his residence there since 1980s.
