Tyabb is a coastal suburb of Melbourne that is located on the Mornington Peninsula. It was once well-known as Australia’s largest apple and pear grower supplying not just the entire country but even across the globe.
Today, Tyabb is popular as an antique centre with the Tyabb Packing House Antique complex as the largest shop having vintage collections. There are others, such as the Vintage Shed and Vintage Emporium, which antique lovers can visit.
It’s surprising that although this township doesn’t have a pub and it registers many small earthquakes every year because of an existing fault in the area, the population increased with the rapid residential development.
In earthquake prone areas, many engineers recommend tile roofing when building homes because it is the sturdiest and safest. Aside from the ability to withstand earthquakes, tile roofs can also withstand hurricane winds and fire.
Installing tile roofs, both Terracotta and cement tiling, costs more initially. But homeowners can save a lot of cash as it can perform satisfactorily up to 50 years as long as the installation, including the underlayment and batten system, are of high-quality materials and are done properly.
This doesn’t suggest, however, that homeowners should just neglect their roofs. An important factor that affects the lifespan of roofs is proper maintenance. Moss and lichen that naturally grows on clay tiles must be taken care of by de-mossing and cleaning to ensure the smooth flow of rain water to the gutter. Individual brittle terracotta tiles must be replaced to avoid holes and leaks. Damaged pointing and ridge caps must be fixed with repointing and resealing.
The cost of hiring the services of a roofing specialist is nothing compared to the cost of needing to replace the entire roof as a result of not dealing with the small issues early on. An expert knows very well how to find the problems, whereas homeowners won’t notice the small water leaks until they’ve become worse.
