This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for an 11-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code. The authority's concerns about the compliance of the building work relate to the weathertightness and durability of the wall cladding. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority correctly exercised its powers of decision when it refused to issue a code compliance certificate. In deciding this, I must consider whether the solid plaster wall cladding to the house complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code. The stucco includes the components of the system (such as the plaster, the backing sheets and the flashings), as well as the way the components have been installed and work together.
