The team at HomeSmart will create lasting improvements regardless of the type of exterior cladding on your house.
Monolithic cladding is still hugely popular within New Zealand for the simple reason that it looks great, but you will need to keep an eye on it.
Your monolithic cladding will need specific maintenance to help with its lifespan. Keeping the exterior clean by means of a soft wash or brush can help to keep up the maintenance of the cladding. During the process keep an eye out for cracks, holes or deterioration of sealant. Try to keep clear of these areas and make sure preventative action is taken.
Ensure all cracks are repaired correctly, sealant is replaced and the cladding is painted every 7-10years. Monolithic cladding is exposed to the elements of New Zealand’s climate, so it’s important to keep an eye out for any potential issues. It appears that ground movement is becoming more significant which is adding to the risk of cladding cracks.

If your monolithic clad home doesn’t have a cavity, moisture can easily find its way into a crack or damaged sealant and over time may damage the building paper giving it direct access to the frame of your house. Due to the lack of cavity the moisture will slowly damage and rot away the timber framing.
Cladding to ground clearances are also important. Monolithic cladding isn’t designed to have a garden or even concrete surface against it. The constant moisture from these surfaces will slowly soften the cladding to the point where it will break. This also creates a situation where moisture ingress is effectively sucked upwards towards the base plate of the frame in your home.
