Repairs & Maintenance
We carry out repairs to exterior cladding systems, including leaky homes.
Authorities have recognized that an exterior plastered coating system that is regularly washed down, inspected and maintained will serve its purpose for many years and this is recommended, as per clause 2.5 in the E:2 External Moisture content of the Building code.
Plastered Houses should be repainted every 7 to 10 years with a good quality paint.
Some of the early warning signs indicating maintenance may be required are:
- Cracks in the plaster
- Flaking plaster or paint
- Delamination of plaster
- Dampness, mould or musty smells
- Leaking around windows and doors
- Swelling of skirtings or window sills
- Water staining on carpet or interior walls
