Weathertightness

Kaizon has a proven track record of maximising our client’s outcomes

Many commercial and residential owners across New Zealand continue to suffer from weathertightness related issues within their building structures, resulting in reduced property lifespans and large repair bills.

Do you have a leaky home?

We have had vast experience in dealing with a wide variety of leaky homes of differing levels of complexity. Your home is particularly at risk if it has a monolithic cladding or if it has features such as decks, parapet walls, missing/inadequate flashings, and cracking to the cladding. In addition, if your home shows signs of internal dampness, you most likely have a leaky home on your hands.

However, many homeowners are unaware of the real issues with their building as leaks can be discrete and undetectable from the inside, but the damage to your property can be severe. The best method to determine if you own a leaky home is to have an assessment undertaken by one of Kaizon’s professionally qualified building surveyors. We offer a range of assessments, depending on your requirements and budget, which can help determine if you have a leaky home and what needs to be done to restore your home to its former glory.

Weathertight investigations & assessments

Over the past 15 years we have completed many building assessments ranging from individual homes, large multi-apartment complexes, as well as for commercial and retail building clients. As such, we have accumulated an extensive knowledge of weathertight defects enabling us to undertake comprehensive assessments on all forms of construction.

We offer a wide range of weathertight assessments. These range from preliminary visual surveys to full investigations, ascertaining the cause, extent, and resultant damage of water ingress.

Our detailed reports itemise the defects currently causing water ingress, the defects which are likely to allow future water ingress, and the breaches of the New Zealand Building Code that have occurred. We can also provide remedial works recommendations and can assist you in all aspects of the remediation process as well as acting in the capacity of expert witness.

Weathertight remediation

Weathertightness remediation can often be a lengthy and complex process. Kaizon will work with you and guide you through the entire remediation, ensuring you receive the appropriate advice during the whole process. Our extensive understanding of the detailing and construction of buildings allows us to work with you and provide a correctly detailed and weathertight scheme.

We will work with you during all stages of the weathertight remediation process. This includes; production of concept plans, obtaining building consent, administering the tendering process, selection of contractors to undertake the works, through to project management of the actual remediation works.
