Success Stories

These case studies below are just some of the thousands of properties that have used the proactive building management system to successfully protect and enhance their building and market value. You will see that every one of them is a plaster-clad home and that they have been successfully sold for above their current CV – backed up by the great results we found in their properties using the Mdu Probe System.
Its easy to protect your property value with the Mdu Probe System

Building Expert specifies Mdu Probes

Below is an extract of a high-ranking Building Expert specifying Mdu Probes as part of targeted repairs and to protect timber from extensive damage from future leaks:

“MONITORING: If the targeted repairs option is selected, and there is a possibility of your continuing to live in or own the apartment, I would recommend you have a permanent monitoring system installed as soon as possible. A system such as that offered by Moisture Detection Ltd (Mdu Probe System) is likely to identify the needs for additional repairs, and can provide early warning of problems and a chance to carry out repairs before extensive framing damage takes place.”

Additionally, should the owners choose to follow a full reclad approach to their building remediation, then they would be well advised to install the Mdu Probe System as an excellent method to do the same thing – to check on works and address any future leaks that may happen in the future and provide total peace of mind for the current and future owners.

Purchasers pull out when vendor is unwilling to have the Mdu Probe System installed

Below is a recent case where the purchasers of a plaster home were seeking assurances as to the condition and health of the property. Their investigations and advice led them to request the Mdu Probe System be installed as part of their due diligence. However the vendors refused and the purchasers are now prudently taking their business elsewhere, for the reasons explained by the purchaser in the below email:

Subject: RE: Mdu PROBE System for “xxxxxxx”

Hi there,

Just to let you know the sale has fallen through.
The vendors have refused to allow us to do due diligence (i.e. install the Mdu Probe System), as recommended by our inspectors and legal representative. Two reasons were presented by the owners:
1) the probes are too invasive, and
2) that we might use the results to insist that remedial work is completed.

We can only assume that they either have something to hide, or don’t understand the realities of selling a plaster clad house in NZ.

Thanks for your time. We will now look at other properties.

Regards
David
