Correct installation of Ecoply Barrier and Ecoply Structural Plywood
We have had a few failed inspections recently because of the incorrect installation of Ecoply. It is important to ensure the board is fitted vertically both for barrier and structural Ecoply. We have tried to see if Ecoply will accept boards fitted horizontally but on all occasions they have repeated that the boards must be fitted vertically.
Please also ensure your fixing pattern on the boards is suited for an extra high wind zone (which is most areas in the Kaikōura District)
On a side note, consents are steady here at Council and everyone appears to busy, great for the district! Keep up the good work and see you all soon on site.
