Our reports are very thorough and take into account all potential weak spots in your property that could suffer from water damage caused by the elements. With this knowledge, you are able to make a long term maintenance plan to keep your home weathertight and prioritise repairs where required.
Our Weather Tightness Reports in Auckland include the following:
Slope and contour of the section, the ground clearance, the groundwater, and stormwater drainage.
We check the type of material used for the external cladding, baseboards, eaves, soffits, garages, decks, staircase, windows, and doors. We will look at how they were constructed and their condition. We will check the weather tightness of the building exterior.
We note if the electrical mainboards are properly flashed and penetrations for services properly sealed.
Basement Retaining Wall
We will check that the basement retaining walls are adequately waterproofed and that there is not any water ingress through the basement retaining walls.
Roof, skylights, flashing, chimneys, and roof penetrations
We check the type of material used, as well as if they were suitable for the application used. We will look at how it was constructed and its condition. We will check the weather tightness of the roof, making note of any repairs that may be required.
Spouting, internal gutters and downpipes
We check the type of material used, as well as their size in relation to the amount of water they have to carry. We check the fall of the spouting and the internal gutters, if there are any obstructions, making note of any repairs that may be required.
This will be included inspecting the condition of the internal cladding, ceiling and floors for water ingress, and mould. Moisture testing will be carried out.
The last area to inspect is the crawlspace. Here we inspect the piles, pile bases, and the condition of the subfloor materials. We check for the presence of water. If water flows in the crawl space, and if its flow is hindered, and if so, what effect it is having on the weather tightness of the property. We also check for mould, and signs of moisture.
