RECLADDING PROCESS

Home > Recladding > Recladding Process

Leaky homes are an ongoing problem in New Zealand, and a large number of property owners have been feeling the consequences of questionable building practices. When recladding a leaky home, a vital part of the process is replacing any rotting timber within the frame. This means that the total undertaking that is required can only be mapped out after a very detailed property inspection, as opposed to someone only replacing the cladding without addressing the underlying problem.

Platinum Pacific have a wealth of experience dealing with leaky homes. Using the latest technology and knowledge, we offer efficient and high quality work for our clients on a regular basis.

All repairs that require the replacement of part of a failed cladding system require a Building Consent.

A RECLAD PROJECT GENERALLY CONSISTS OF 6 STEPS:

1: Planning

  • Establishing the extent of the problem, to come up with the best practical solution
  • An on-site meeting with council inspectors, project manager, owner and building professionals to discuss any issues that may arise

2: Building Preparation

  • Scaffolding is put in place
  • Tarpaulins protect the building from the weather
  • Dust covers and plastic sheets used internally if appropriate

3: Removal And Exposure

  • Removal and disposal of existing cladding
  • Window joinery removed and stored
  • Council inspection of exposed frame

4: Repair Work (This can be the biggest and most time consuming part of the project)

  • Repair or replace rotten timber and other damaged components
  • Modify or repair any roof/junction/decks
  • Timber preservative applied to new and existing timber
  • Upgrade or install new joinery
  • Council inspection carried out

5: Reclad

  • New cladding is installed
  • Cladding inspection

6: Completion

  • Re-painting as required
  • Scaffolding and other material removed
