Many of the establishments in Cheltenham, the suburb that is 19 km on the southeast of Melbourne’s CBD, have long been in existence. Two examples are the Kingston Centre and Westfield Southland.
Kingston Centre was originally called the Melbourne Benevolent Asylum, an aged care and rehabilitation facility established in 1911. Its name was only changed to Kingston Centre in 1970 and it had a $46.3 M redevelopment in 2010.
The super shopping centre, Westfield Southland, first opened in 1968 with just a few stores. Today, it houses up to 416 stores and 16 Village Cinemas.
How did all these establishments survive through the years? It takes proper care and maintenance of the property. Homeowners should do the same for their respective homes, especially the roof, if they want it to last long. Do an inspection of the roof at least once a year or after heavy storms. Don’t wait until the last minute to ask a professional to fix leaks and holes. By then, it would be too late for roof restoration and total roof replacement is a lot more expensive.
Our Cheltenham roofing experts are ready to provide services that help homeowners keep their roofs in good shape. We have trained workmen who can handle the problems no matter what type of roof it is – terracotta tile roofing, concrete or Colorbond roofing. We have also provided the tools and equipment that help get the work done quick and easy.
Tile roofs that have moss and lichen growing on them need de-mossing and cleaning. Broken tiles need replacement and deteriorated mortar joints require re-pointing, and most likely re-sealing as well. Corroded metal roofs with rusty screws and deteriorated washers must be replaced and/or restored using the right methods and repainted immediately before cracks and holes develop causing water leaks.
So, looking for a roof specialist for any of the above-mentioned services? Just call our local tradesmen and we will respond right away.
