This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for 3-year-old additions and alterations to a house (the additions) because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code. The authority's concerns about the compliance of the building work relate primarily to the weathertightness of the exterior building envelope of the additions. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the additions. In deciding this matter, it must be considered whether the external claddings to the additions (the claddings) comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code.
