Reclads and Watertight Remediation

Homeowners have approached us for re-clads for one of the following reasons:

  • Leaky homes – localised or significant moisture damage.
  • Remove the leaky home stigma associated with their monolithic cladded home.
  • To Increase the aesthetic value of their home, or simply to rejuvenate a tired exterior.

Leaky homes were built during the 1990’s and 2000’s building boom. A combination of poor weathertight cladding systems (e.g. monolithic cladding), a relaxation in timber treatments standards, and poor design has resulted in water getting in between the cladding system and frame work. The framework rots which jeopardises the structural integrity of a home and encourages the growth of a toxic mould.

A re-clad is a whole different process to a new build, and not every builder can step you through the process smoothly. Hegarty Building offers extensive experience and the right skill set to provide you with accurate costings, realistic construction timelines and a high quality, long lasting re-clad.

The wall systems we have worked with include:

  • Weatherboards
  • Fibre cement
  • Plywood
  • Masonry veneer
  • Concrete

There is also opportunity to get additional work completed whilst you re-clad your home. Rewiring, upgrading your plumbing, or improving on insulation will all be considerably cheaper if done during your re-clad.
