A recently launched online tool can help owners of leaky homes create an action plan to improve and re-build homes.
The Home Assessment Tool — available at www.fpb.co.nz — is a useful place for home owners to find the best products and partners to make desired improvements.
Future-Proof Building chief executive Aidan Jury says the tool is set up to enable home owners to create an action plan, so they can start to improve their homes and contact the best suppliers to do so.
“It will show people what they need to do to do it right, as well as how much they could save on future household bills by applying Future-Proof Building solutions.
”The Future-Proof Building initiative welcomes the Government’s recent announcement to contribute to leaky home repair costs as a turning point for affected home owners and the construction industry.
“The announcement adds a necessary injection of energy across the construction industry. It is time to stop wasting money on lawyers. Let’s put the money directly where it needs to go.
“We would encourage people to take the time to work with proven FPB product partners and tradespeople to ensure the repair work not only fixes the problems but improves home owners’ quality of life and saves them money over the long run,” Mr Jury says.
