External cladding for buildings

Topic: External cladding for buildings

Exterior Wall Claddings

Investigate and describe properties of a minimum of seven (7) of the following exterior claddings;

-Weatherboards- e.g. Linea, bevel back pine (not Cedar)
-Brick veneer
-Solid plaster stucco
-Vertical board and batten weatherboards
-Insulclad or similar
-Compressed fibre cement sheets
-Masonry Veneer
-PVC cladding
-Sheet material

(Considered factors)

-Framing and cavity requirements (spacing, tolerances)
-Different types of Building wraps, tape, air seals
-Installation differences
-Fixings and fastenings
-Intersection details and Flashings
-Control joints
-Exterior Joinery installation requirements
-Building Code requirements
-Producer Statements

When abutting two or more of cladding materials (from Q2). Explain with labelled sketches where the joint/flashing intersection abuts, to address all weather proofing possibilities

(Considered Factors)

-That particular intersection point
-Framing requirements
-The type of flashings required
-Any mouldings/scribers required

“Weathertightness Issues and the Risk Matrix”

Investigate weather tightness and where can water penetrate into buildings. Suggest ways of how to prevent this water penetration

-The main high risk areas -Risk categories
-Contributing factors

(Considered Factors)

-Risk matrix
-Design factors
-Water Penetration Protection Systems (WPPS)
-The 4 ‘D’s
-Waterproof membranes (DPM, tanking, vapour barriers)
-Flashings and/or weather-grooves

To prove your evidence, use E2/AS, brochures, manufactures specifications and installation data.

Notice that The answers may need further explanations with pictures

It not necessarily how many pages or words as long as the questions answered

I got more questions I will place them if the service will be good
