Copper Flashing


my roofer wants to put copper flashing over existing lead flashing. Will there be some kind of chemical reaction? I would think not since you soider copper pipe with lead

Can't say about reaction, but adding material over material makes things look too bulky.

Lead is pretty inert and reacts hardly with anything.

I've lead flashing and copper counterflashing for my chimney.

You'll be fine.
