Since the leaky home scandal first erupted in the early 2000’s, there have been a number of initiatives to assist affected house owners.
All have ended up costing owners money, often without resolving the underlying problems.
The current ‘fix’ is to fully, or partly reclad your house, which is an expensive and disruptive process.
The scary part for home owners is that the cost of the reclad is unknown when the work starts. Often, most of your cladding and timber is still perfectly good – but you will pay to have it replaced anyway – and your house still won’t recover it’s resale value.
While recladding may be the only solution for some houses, there are other excellent, and much cheaper ways to fix your monolithic plaster clad house.
