    Default Recladding of a weatherside home

    Hi all

    I'm just doing a bit of research on weatherside homes, as I have come across a few during open home trips.

    I know what a weatherside looks like already, but I just want to see if anyone has done a recladding before and most importantly:
    1) how much it costs,
    2) how long it takes,
    3) is building consent required

    Cheers

    1) Allow approx $100m2 wall cladding weatherboard installed
    2) Allow few weeks to a month
    3) yes because you are altering the weatherproofness of the walls

    I have listed a property in South Auckland. It was built in the 80's and I have just found out that the cladding is weatherside. I had a potential purchaser come through the property last night and he tells me that the cladding is now deteriorating. He estimates that it will cost him $35,000-$40,000 to relcad the whole house. The total building area is 90m2. Has anyone else found themselves in a situation where they brought a property and had to reclad the whole thing? If so, how much did it cost you to do it and roughly how long does it take if you have someone do it for you?

    35 to 40 sounds like a lot to me

    Well when called this guy who runs his own Building Inspection Company and he said that the fact the house was made form weatherboard cladding and that it is now deteriorating these things alone would definitely devalue the house by at least $30,000. But as this is the first time I have ever encountered and heard of this sort of cladding I wanted to get a second opinion. Have you ever had reclad a whole house before, jimO? If so, how big was the house and when was it built? The more info I can about this stuff the better as I am dealing with an unrealistic vendor who is refusing to come down on her asking price. Even without this cladding issue the price that she wants is $40,000-$50,000 above it's current market value anyway.

    the house was around the same size and cost around 2.5k to plaster 20 years ago, nowdays of course it will be dearer and may require a cavity depending on the lining you go with, if your buying you have the upper hand, get a quote from a builder and use that to negotiate the price down

    Just a warning, saying the word 're-clad' to anyone these days seems to result in them running up phone numbers off the bat. You need a good understanding of exactly what's required and get them to quote for that and that alone.

    I've got a weatherside house that has small section of vertical weatherboard that needed repair/replacing. The weatherside is in very good condition, only the weatherboard need a bit of work. Out of four builder, I had two refuse to quote, one quote $200k+ for a complete reclad and one just never returned any calls. Got someone to do it eventually under direction of a building engineer I work with, cost $2k and a few beers.

    $35k doesn't sound that far off, a bit on the high side, but it depends on what access etc. is like. You may not need consent if you get the new cladding classed as a 'like for like' replacement. I would be interested in what kind of quotes you get back.
