Picture this: You’ve found the perfect home, only the roof isn’t exactly in an ideal condition. Beenleigh is a beautiful area but it has a big percentage of older homes. Don’t let older roofs deter you from picking a great home. At Roo Roofing, we specialise in roof restoration and replacement for older homes, having experience all over Queensland, especially South East Queensland.
Beenleigh is located next to the M1 motorway which connects Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It’s only 30 minutes from Brisbane CBD or 40 mins from the Gold Coast. It can be reached by road or rail.
Beenleigh is close enough to the city centres but also still has a great small-town feeling. With the low crime rate, convenient location thanks to local public transport, and easy access to major cities on both sides, you can see why the locals like to keep it a secret.
