New-generation weather-tight cladding wasa key requirement for this home, which uses the latest systems to ensure watertightness, insulation and flexibility of design.

The ground floor is clad in Masonryplast, a plaster capable of creating a smooth finish over blocks. The second and third storeys are clad in Insulclad cladding system, which is more suited for cladding timber frames.

Weather-tight cladding has been applied to the exterior of the home, and painted with a waterproof paint. The ground floor is clad in Masonryplast, and the upper storeys in Insulcald.

Both systems, supplied by Plaster Systems, were chosen for their ability to withstand New Zealand rain and sun. The Insulclad system allows for a 20mm cavity between the timber frame and the cladding, allowing air to dry any moisture. Insulclad also provides insulation well above levels required by building regulations.

Both products have been certified by BRANZ, and tested in New Zealand conditions.

The structural walls and boundary walls were painted with Insulcote exterior paint, which creates a flexible waterproof membrane and a low-maintenance finish.
