Albert Park / Middle Park and South Melbourne are in the bayside area of Melbourne and have many fine old period homes. Being situated close to Port Phillip Bay the homes do suffer the extra pressure of salt laden air. This salt air can cause the rapid deterioration of not only metals and timbers, but slate roof tiles also. Over the last 30 years we’ve carried out many roof slating projects in these suburbs.We’re continually surprised at the amount of rot that seems to come from this salt filled air particularly affecting the poorer quality slate on the roofs. The type of works we’ve carried out… much of it accelerated by the salt air… ranges from replacing a few rotted slates to full renewals when the slates are completely rotten. One thing we’ve also consistently noticed is the old timber slate battens are really broken down more so than other areas further away from the bay.

Here’s a couple of pics of a recent slate roof renewal we carried out in Middle Park. The home in question was undergoing a full restoration so there was lots of rotten timber work on the roof replaced as well as the soft and porous roof slates.
