Maintenance of the Hermpac Board and Batten Cavity System is the building owner's responsibility.
Annual inspections must be made to ensure that all aspects of the cladding system, including flashings, remain in a weatherproof condition. Any damaged areas or areas showing signs of deterioration which would allow water ingress, must be repaired immediately. Sealant, coatings, flashings or the weatherboards must be repaired in accordance with the relevant manufacturer's instructions.
Maintenance requirements will depend on the coating type that is applied. Please refer to the coating manufacturer's specification. Specific maintenance schedules for re-coating oil stains are issued on a project specific basis.
Regular cleaning (at least annually) of the surface finish with water and a mild detergent is recommended to remove grime, dirt and organic growth, to maximise the life and appearance of the cladding.
