This determination arises from the decisions of the authority to issue a notice to fix and to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for 11-year-old alterations to an existing house because it was not satisfied that the alterations complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's concerns about the compliance relate to the weathertightness and durability of the exterior wall cladding. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to issue the notice to fix and to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate.
In deciding this matter, consideration was given to whether the exterior wall cladding to the house complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External moisture of the Building Code that was in force at the time the consent was issued. The wall cladding includes the components of the system (such as the monolithic overlay wall cladding, the underlying original aluminium faced solid wall planks and the windows) as well as the way components have been installed and work together.
