Richmond, Vic, 3121

Richmond is an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located 3 kilometers (1.86 miles) east of Melbourne’s Central Business District in the City of Yarra municipality. 

Since the early 1990s, the varied neighborhood has been the target of gentrification, and it currently includes an unusual mix of expensively converted warehouse homes, public housing high-rise flats, and Victorian-era terrace houses. The suburb’s residential section coexists with a thriving retail sector. Richmond was home to the Nine Network studios, known as GTV-9 until they relocated to Docklands in 2011. Dimmeys has long been linked with Richmond, despite being situated in the nearby suburb of Cremorne. The neighborhood is widely known for its famous factory stores along Bridge Road, which remain a draw for visitors.

Richmond is well-known for its lively and attractive Little Saigon neighborhood along Victoria Street; nevertheless, the region is also renowned for illegal drug trafficking (particularly heroin) that happens in both street-based and residential settings.

Why A Roof Replacement?

The need for a new roof is sometimes obvious to the naked eye. Sometimes the causes are more difficult to detect, such as storm damage, which might take weeks or years to manifest. And, in other cases, a new roof is required for reasons other than damage. Getting a new roof is always a major decision, no matter why. Roof replacement or installation is a significant financial commitment for homeowners. The right roofing also has a big impact on the house’s beauty, value, and overall functionality.

Do you have a rental property that you rent out? Are you considering putting your house on the market? Is your current roof at least twenty years old? A roof inspection is recommended by Total Roofing and Cladding to check for potential damages. This is the first stage in deciding whether you require a new roof or only repairs. Some of the things to check for when deciding whether or not you need a new roof are:

  • Shingles or tiles that have lost a significant amount of their granule coating.
  • The sheathing on the roof is fragile and rotting.
  • Shingling or tiling that has been lost, torn, or broken
  • Any shingles or tiles with cupped or curled edges should be avoided.
  • Large parts of the roof have been covered in thick mold or moss.
  • Clear damage
  • Loss of thermal properties
  • Damaged flashings
  • Clear water leaks or leaking roof
  • Damaged roof structure

Replacing A Tiled ROof With Metal Roofing

When it comes to re-roofing a home in Melbourne, colorbond re-roofing has been the most preferred option. Colorbond’s aesthetic appeal and amazing longevity, along with its near-zero maintenance requirements, has made it far more popular than tiled roofing.

Tile roofs can develop a variety of problems as they age. The mortar work deteriorates, causing the ridge crowns to become loose and perhaps blow away in heavy winds. Water leaks occur when the tiles become brittle and crack. Roof flashings begin to deteriorate when valleys corrode. Re-roofing is unavoidable at some point.
Colorbond roofs are lightweight, extremely resistant to extreme weather, thermally more efficient than tiles, and provide less of a security risk because opening a part of the roof without the right tools is difficult.
