The application for this determination arises from the following: 1-The house was nearing completion in 2011 when water stains were observed on timber match lining beneath the skillion roof. The underlying construction was investigated and found to differ from the building consent drawings; 2-Following negotiation during 2012, the builder submitted a proposal to the authority for approval for remedial work to be carried out as an amendment to the building consent; 3-The authority has sought a determination on whether the proposed roof repairs will comply with certain clauses of the Building Code (Schedule 1, Building Regulations 1992). The matter to be determined is therefore whether the proposed roof repairs to the house comply with Clause B2 Durability, Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause E3 Internal Moisture of the Building Code.
