WHAT TO CONSIDER

The term reclad or re-cladding means to replace any part of the exterior envelope (component or system) used on the outside of the building to prevent the ingress of moisture and includes over-cladding or targeted repairs.

There are many reasons why homeowners choose to reclad their homes. Typically the number one reason is a need to repair damage from water ingress.

From round about the mid 90’s to 2004, a number of New Zealand homes were designed and built using cladding systems that were not suited to New Zealand’s weather conditions. This created weathertightness issues aka “the leaky home crisis”. Some home in New Zealand still have this issue.

Common indicators of homes suffering from weathertightness issues are:

  • Leaks appearing
  • Mould or staining on ceilings and walls appearing
  • Wall starting to bulge
  • Cracked walls
  • Warped flooring
  • Musty, mouldy smells
