Situated just around 5kms from Melbourne’s CBD, Toorak is regarded as one of the most prestigious suburbs in Australia and certainly the most prestigious in Melbourne. It derives its name from ‘Toorak House’ which was built in 1849 by James Jackson, a merchant.
The Quality of Roofs In Toorak.
Throughout its history, the suburb’s buildings have primarily used the best roofing materials of the time such as high-quality terracotta, porcelain tiles and slate. It is, therefore, no accident that Toorak’s roofs, some more than a century old, have stood the test of time. Granted, most of the roofs have undergone some form of roof repair or roof restoration at some stage of their lifetime, but their structural integrity has remained sound.
A Typical Toorak Roof Repair and Restoration Service.
A typical Toorak roof that is need of repair will have signs of damage such as excessive moss or lichen growing on the roof tiles. Lichen or moss growing on roof tiles is not a major problem. However, when the growth is excessive, it becomes a problem because it can result in blockage of water courses. And this can be expensive to repair. So too can rust in gutters and valleys, as this is another sign that repairs are needed. Any surface rust should be neutralised as soon as it becomes noticeable to prevent its spread as rust plays a major role in the weakening of roofs.
Faded roof tile surface should also alert you to the need to start carrying out repairs. Faded roof tile surfaces weaken the roof tiles and make them susceptible to becoming porous. It is, therefore, critical that you complete roof restoration and roof repairs as required. If your house’s roof is made of terracotta roof tiles, their lifespan can be prolonged by use of a thick glaze with or without added colour.
