What is the cost for Recladding or Leaky Home Repair?

What is the cost for Recladding or Leaky Home Repair?

What is the size of the home?

The dimensions of the home will determine the surface area that requires recladding.

How complex is the design and layout of the home?

This includes factors such as how many levels the home has, accessibility, internal or external decks, whether the home has eaves or parapets, and any other design choices that change the recladding approach.

What is the extent of damage to the home or building that requires repair?

Depending on whether your home is already leaking, or you are preemptively getting ahead of the problem, will determine the extent of any underlaying damage and therefore the extent of the repair.

While knowing the square meterage of a home can help provide a very rough estimate of the work required, the above factors play a vital role in determining a more accurate budget for the project.

While the most direct way of figuring how much it will cost to reclad your plaster home is to get in contact with us for a consultation, we’ve put together a few examples as a reference for you to begin to understand where your home may stand.

The above examples are just estimates based on the type of homes we commonly deal with it. These estimates assume that the direct fix for the plaster home is a reclad using timber weatherboard with new double glazed joinery. While we hope that these estimates allow you to determine a ballpark figure, every project is unique and may have some additional challenges or costs.
