OTHER SERVICES

INVASIVE TESTING & TIMBER SAMPLING

To enable us to provide a scientifically-based report, we can undertake invasive testing to confirm that leaks are occurring and that they are causing damage. This is done by taking a combination of moisture readings directly into the outside face of the framing, cutting holes in the cladding and taking timber samples for laboratory testing. Timber framing can be structurally damaged from leaks but the damage may only be seen under a microscope. During this process, we are also able to assess the failures and prescribe what needs to be done to fix the leaks.

HOW TO MAKE A WHRS CLAIM

We can assist in assessing whether your house meets the requirements of this legislation that provides assistance to home owners with leaky homes.

We can interpret the reports provided through this process, act for you in the legal process and also assist in the design and management of the repair of your house. Further information on the Weathertight Homes Resolution Service process can be obtained from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
