Wantirna, which literally means “a gurgling stream,” is a suburb located 24 kilometers to the east of Melbourne’s CBD. It was in 1840 when the first settlers, including Mrs. Madeline Scott who established the “Bushy Park” cattle run, came to this suburb. Now, it has a population of about 14,000 people.
The suburb belongs to the City of Knox. That is why there are places here called Knox Private Hospital and Westfield Knox shopping centre. Speaking of Westfield Knox, this shopping centre is quite popular because it is being used sometimes for shooting Neighbours, the soap opera.
Families can enjoy going to parks with playground, barbeque facility and bike track. One notable park is Koomba Park, which is a big bushland park with the Victorian Jazz Archive inside it. Children can attend the school of their choice — private, public or catholic school. There is also the Wantirna campus of Swinburne University of Technology and St. Andrews Christian College.
Would you like to reside in this community? You should know that the average price of houses is $524,500. It’s not as high as in other suburbs but it’s also some distance away from the City Centre.
If despite the distance and the simplicity of life, you still choose to buy a house here, consider checking the integrity of the roofing, and not the just the pleasant appearance of the different rooms. The roof is very important for shielding your family against the natural heat of the sun, strong wind and rain. So, if you don’t know how to spot problems, you might experience some headache later on.
It is better to have a Melbourne roofing specialist come and check the structure for you. With his expertise, he can tell you what needs to be done. If some Terracotta tiles are broken, replacing them might be in order. If there’s too much moss and lichen growth on them, de-mossing and cleaning are required. If the screws and fixings of the metal roof are rusty, replacement and application of anti-rust agents may be necessary.
When you find a trustworthy roof repair and restoration service provider, you can have peace of mind that the job is done right. You can be sure that the roof over your head will last a long time.
