Alphington, a residential suburb developed predominantly for the middle class, is only 7 kilometer to the northeast of Melbourne’s City center. It is one of the 51 suburbs in Victoria that has a median house price of over $1 million and house rental price of about $590 per week. The rather high price of real estate is due to the suburb’s proximity to Melbourne CBD and high real estate property demand especially among employed professionals.
This suburb features lots of green open space, which include Alphington Park, Darebin Parklands and LaTrobe golf club. There are more revegetated areas here including the area with growing River Red Gum trees near the Alphington railway station and the wetlands to the south of Heidelberg Road.
Aside from the many protected green open space, residents take pride in the Darebin Enterprise Centre, which is a business incubator seeking to help Alphington to grow economically. Another important happening here is the development of the old Alphington paper mill site into a residential precinct with commercial spaces, offices, community and sports facilities. Surely, many people will look forward to the completion of this residential project.
If you’re one of these excited folks, then you need to know how to evaluate and choose your dwelling. Some people are very much concerned about the roof of their house. That is because they may have experienced living in a house with water leaking problem before. Well, if you want to be sure that you have nothing to worry about, look for reputable roofing specialists in the area to check the property.
They can do a thorough inspection of the roofing and can give recommendations as to what type of job might be necessary. Old tile roofs usually need demossing, repointing or resealing. Metal roofing, on the other hand, may simply need some cleaning and repainting. Most likely, you won’t be needing these roof restoration services now if you’re investing in a new home. But, for sure, you would need their help and assistance some time later.
