When it comes to heritage-listed properties, getting “just any roofer” simply won’t do!

Australia’s harsh climate experiences vast thermal fluctuations on a day-to-day basis, often experiencing extremes that would not affect buildings in milder climates elsewhere in the world. Older materials such as slate, copper, zinc, or lead can suffer decay and gradual unseen damage over time.

Unfortunately, when water enters the building, the roof becomes a major concern. This is often the case with older buildings where the building’s cavities, ceilings and the interiors are also heritage-listed.
We understand that you need it fixed fast, but it has to be done correctly and in line with very strict guidelines with which MLR have solid experience.
