Plumbing - Dux Quest

Dux Quest pipes and connections identified.

Dux Quest was withdrawn from the market about 30 years ago. It pre-dates the current Building Code and the Building Act.

This product has been causing major problems for home owners throughout NZ. 

Often insurance companies wont cover damage done by Dux Quest piping, especially if it has leaked before.

Surface finish, Clearances, Cavity, Flashings, Facings and trims, Visible fixings and soakers, Buckling, Weathertightness risk, Penetrations, Physical damage, Alignment, Splitting and rot, Shrinkage, bowing and cupping

This House has been clad in some areas with directly fixed timber weatherboards, a very durable design and if well maintained the material is very durable also. the Gable end has been clad with cedar shingles and are also in good condition.

The cladding on this house is in good condition for its age and has been maintained to a high standard of workmanship.

Here are some helpful links describing the attributes of this type.

Fibre cement sheet product: The following related issues have been assessed
Surface finish, Clearances, Cavity, Flashings, Jointers, Weathertightness risk, Penetrations, Physical damage, Control joints, Sheet layout and cracking

Direct fix, possibly  an asbestos product, currently low risk. Well maintained. 

Brick veneer: The following related issues have been assessed
Surface finish, Weathertightness risk, Clearances, Penetrations, Erosion or spalling, Mortar eroding, Lintels - sagging, end support, corrosion, Loose bricks, Brick to foundation alignment, Weep-holes, Vent-holes, Differential movement/cracking, Dampness and moisture damage, Control joints and sealants, Cavity, Physical damage, Flashings

It is uncertain when brick veneer construction was introduced as a building method (sources range from the 1850s to the mid-1930s), but it is likely to have been after the 1931 Napier earthquake when the earthquake requirements of the New Zealand Building Regulations precluded the use of brick as a structural element. All brickwork must be supported by another element such as timber or steel framing, reinforced concrete or reinforcing and grouting the brickwork itself.

There are examples of stone veneer construction on a timber frame from as early as 1915.

Ventilation/Weep holes

This cladding system is not using weep holes to ventilate the cavity. 

The cavity system here is relying on ventilation from the subfloor, this encourages warm moist air from the underfloor to circulate the internal wall cavity thus creating a good growing enviroment for mould. this is considered bad building practice and should be rectified should works be carried out in this area.

Pressed metal tile roofing had its origins during World War 2 when a process was developed in which mild steel was coated with a specially-developed protective bitumastic emulsion coating, which was then covered with sand. The coating was initially applied to corrugated steel, but a pressed tile profile (from 0.55 mm G300 steel) was soon adopted, and stone chips replaced the sand. The roofing was able to be laid to a lower roof pitch than standard tiles - as low as 15 - while still providing a lightweight roof.

The tiles were nailed to 50 x 50 mm or 50 x 40 mm timber battens fixed over the rafters and the lowest course of tiles was supported by the fascia board, which was raised to keep the bottom row of tiles at the same angle as the other tile courses.

Purpose-made flashings were provided for ridges, hips and gables, while at apron flashing the edges of the tile were bent up on site and cover flashed.
