This seaside resort town is just 83 kilometers to the south of Melbourne and it is a very popular destination during vacation periods.

Should you decide to buy a property in this part of Victoria, be sure to check every part of the house, including the roof. It’s a good idea to have a roofing specialist to evaluate the overall condition of this structure. In case any roof repairs become necessary, perhaps you can talk with the seller and further haggle the price of the property.
In a coastal town such as Rye, the roof can suffer a beating from the extreme heat of the sun, the strong, salty wind and the rain. After years of exposure to the forces of nature, it may be necessary to seek the services of a roof restoration expert.
Colorbond roofing is highly weather resistant and is often used for coastal houses. Its durable steel is anti-corrosive with baked-on paint finish that doesn’t chip or peel. Tile roofing, on the other hand, looks luxurious and features superb heat and water resistance.
Both types last a long time with minimal maintenance. Nevertheless, both deteriorate as a result of normal wear and tear. The screws, joints and flashings of metal roofs may corrode. Tile roofs become brittle and moss grow on them.
