Why You Should Choose Timber Weatherboards
Timber weatherboards have been in use for over 100 years in New Zealand. When installed correctly, they provide an excellent cladding. Timber won't crack or crumble like concrete and brick will, and because it has the ability and flexibility to move, timber will often fare better that rigid materials (brick, concrete, etc) in an earthquake.
CodeMark product certification is a voluntary scheme that provides an easily-understood and robust way to show that a building product or system meets the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code. It was developed by the Australian Building Codes Board and the New Zealand Department of Building and Housing, in consultation with State and Territory Governments, Industry Groups and prospective Certifications Bodies.
What it means for you
A CodeMark-certified product or construction method must be accepted by any building consent authority as complying with the Building Code, as long as it is used as specified. It not only guarantees that the territorial authority will accept the system as complying with the Building Code, but also gives you peace-of-mind knowing that the system has under-gone testing, investigations, and audits to prove that it will stand the test of time.
