The problems associated with monolithic cladding and leaky homes have been widely reported in the media.
Here at Asset Property Inspections we can help you identify if the home you are buying could be prone to defects associated with poor cladding. We can offer initial non-invasive testing which will identify if further investigations are required or if the external cladding can be deemed weathertight. A home which isn’t weathertight can be difficult to sell because of the issues associated with the ongoing legal battles currently being pursued by owners of these homes.
We will help you identify and understand monolithic claddings and the risk associated with this type of home. Everything you need to know about understanding leaky homes can be found on the MBIE’s Signs of a Leaky Home website here.
Also, the Department of Building and Housing’s Guide To the Diagnosis of Leaky Buildings is essential reading if you suspect you may need a weathertightness inspection.
