For many of us, a new home is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime undertaking, meaning we don't have a large amount of experience to base decision making on.

In this case, it is important to be able to consult an organisation that specialises in providing reliable information on the materials and systems on the market. The BRANZ appraisal team evaluates such products according to the specific requirements of the New Zealand Building Code.

External cladding, waterproofing membranes and roofing materials, among other potentially high-risk products and systems, all fall under the BRANZ system.

Russell Clarke of BRANZ says that many categories of building products may have given rise to performance concerns in the past.

"However, with a BRANZ Appraisal, customers can be confident that rigorous testing has been carried out to check they meet the required standard," says Clarke.

BRANZ Appraisals can be viewed on the BRANZ website, through searching by number (if known), product type or company name. Current appraisals can be downloaded in full for free.
