    customer in the mount changed their single for double. House is brick and tile about 10-12 years old. Difference was 6 degrees.

    Under the current building regs, can you replace single glazed wood with single glazed aluminium, or does it have to be double?

    As a matter of interest, elliot, how many windows or rooms did you get replaced for $12K, was it DIY or professional and did the council get involved?

    Per recent advice to me, in Auckland you're able to replace single wood with single aluminium no problem.

    The council doesn't need to get involved unless any of the windows are moving, or getting wider.

    Actually council dont have to be involved either way as windows can be replaced (under schedule 1. 1) or new windows and doors (under schedule 1 9) can be placed in exterior walls and that means old openings made bigger. Still has to comply with code but no consent required.

    This is totally at odds with what I've been told by two builders quoting me on a window replacement. To my knowledge if the window gets wider it needs consent. You can drop a window down and turn it into a glass sliding door with no issue whatsoever, but want the window a couple inches wider, and it's a council hassle.

    This is clearly covered by Part 8. "Windows and exterior doorways inexisting dwellings and outbuildings" in the document "Building work that does notrequire a building consent" https://www.building.govt.nz/assets/...d-guidance.pdf

    If the window gets wider, or if that's even a new window added in an external wall - still covered by Part 8.
    It just has to be done professionally, according to the Building code - obviously lintel has to be replaced with a new one, longer than the original, the new lintel has to be of proper size, and the roof has to be supported while the lintel is replaced etc.
