Melbourne is a fascinating place to live and visit. Diverse cultures, businesses and recreation have created many interlocking communities within the city.
A large modern city with a rapidly growing population and expanding urban fringe. Currently home to more than 4.5 million people, Melbourne is welcoming new arrivals at a rate of over 1,500 persons per week.
As a result the demand for new homes is strong particularly in the West, North and South East. This boom has increased house prices and rents, as well as availability. Melbourne’s middle and outer-ring suburbs have seen significant redevelopment and new subdivisions.
Existing housing stock is diverse in architectural styles from late 1800’s Victorian homes, 1910’s Edwardians, 1930’s California Bungalows and post WWII Brick Veneer and weatherboard houses. In the past 20 years many new modern home designs are becoming popular. Many of these styles are particularly well suited to the use of Asphalt Shingles as a preferred Roofing material.
