Residential – leaky buildings and beyond

Most New Zealanders are aware of the residential weathertightness issues commonly referred to as ‘Leaky Building Syndrome’ and the distress these cause. But most are unable to identify and fix the high-risk defects causing the problems.

That’s where we can help.

In addition to uncovering weathertightness defects, we also assist homeowners and body corporates to identify defects and non-compliance within other areas of the New Zealand Building Code. Our input means you can undertake the necessary remedial repairs to bring your property up to current New Zealand codes and standards. It also means you can plan for maintenance of your building in order to prevent deterioration or damage, essentially prolonging the serviceable life of your property.

Acting as your representative, we can provide you with the following services:

If you want help identifying and fixing any defects in your property, or wish to plan for its maintenance, please contact us on T: +64 9 912 2550 or E:
