House Recladding

ADVANTAGES OF HOUSE RECLADDING

If you decide to embark on recladding your home you will have the opportunity to create a completely new look to your home. You can modernise, make additions or alterations which can have an effect on the value of your home.

The following are a few examples on the advantages of recladding:

  1. Identifying and repairing any damage to framing, flooring, linings, balustrades or waterproof decks.
  2. The opportunity to upgrade to current Building Code external moisture requirements and to apply current E2/AS1 details that include incorporating a cavity system.
  3. The opportunity to change the cladding type for example, replacing monolithic cladding with weatherboards.
  4. The opportunity to treat sound untreated timber while the framing is exposed.
  5. The opportunity to review and replace replace flashings with those meeting current E2/AS1 requirements.
  6. The opportunity to change the internal layout of the house or make internal changes.

BUILDING & RESOURCE CONSENT

You do not need to apply for resource consent to undertake house recladding work. However, your building consent application will be subject to more intensive inspections compared with other applications by the council.

A general cautionary note, if you do proceed with re-cladding work without having been granted a building consent, the Council will issue you with a stop-work notice and require you to obtain the necessary consents before the work is able to continue.

Tip: It does take time to get drawings completed by the architect and to obtain building consent.

Recladding Council Requirements 01

PLANS & BUILDING CONSENT

To acquire a building consent the design documentation must be created with sufficient information and detail to show that the proposed house will meet the performance requirements of the Building Code.

For example, the documentation must clearly show how the house will keep water out by specifying such things as ground clearances, balcony and deck details, cladding system to be installed, joinery and flashing detail.
