Do I need patination oil?
The Lead Sheet Association (LSA) recommends that you use patination oil on all lead installations. This helps you prevent patina (Lead carbonate) from being produced. This white powdery deposit is soluble, risking the patina to leave unsightly marks and streaks down the roof.
Patination oil should be able applied after installing lead and before it gets wet, and it provides a uniform finish. It is available to purchase with the lead as a package.
