System can be installed in any weather

Do you struggle with flexible flashing tape? Hate having to re-do it time and again when it comes unstuck?  Do you think there must be a better way?

How to pass your pre-line moisture test!

How to pass your pre-line moisture test!

New Zealand is a wet country, and a key challenge for builders and construction companies is passing the pre-line moisture test — and with so much rain, wet bottom plates are a major problem.

Waterproofing membrane ‘saves’ flood-prone house in Christchurch

Waterproofing membrane ‘saves’ flood-prone house in Christchurch

Four hundred houses in Christchurch — under threat of flooding as the Avon river, swollen by liquefaction after the earthquakes, pushes up the water table — have been “saved” by a new liquid membrane which insulates the ground floors, turning an $80 million job into a manageable $6 million one. Now one of the main contractors applying the new membrane in Christchurch is to begin applying the new technology to examples of Auckland’s leaky building problem. Wellingt...
