This determination arises from the decision of the authority to issue a notice to fix because it was not satisfied that the particular membrane material applied to the roof deck of a 6-year-old garage complies with Clause E2 of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
In order to determine whether the decision to issue the notice to fix was correct, the matter for determination, in terms of sections 177(a), 177(b)(iii) and 188 of the Act, is whether the membrane material complies with Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code.
The authority has also raised concerns regarding its inability to inspect the membrane prior to the surface being overlaid with tiles.
The notice to fix is limited to the use of a particular membrane material, and makes no reference to any other work under the building consent.
The applicant has restricted the matter to be determined to the membrane material applied to the roof deck in 2008. This determination does not therefore consider any other matters.
