Navigating Home Alteration Permits in Auckland

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on re-cladding and repainting your home.

At Parris Williams, we understand that these processes can be overwhelming, especially for first-time homeowners. In this guide, we will provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions about your home renovation project. From understanding the difference between re-cladding and repainting to choosing the right materials, we’ve got you covered.


Recladding involves replacing the external cladding of your home. This process is often necessary when the existing cladding has deteriorated or become damaged. There are several types of cladding materials available, including timber, vinyl, and fibre cement. Each material has its own set of pros and cons, and the best choice for your home will depend on your budget and preferences.

Timber cladding is a popular choice due to its natural look and feel. However, it requires regular maintenance to prevent rot and decay. Vinyl cladding, on the other hand, is virtually maintenance-free but may not be as aesthetically pleasing as timber. Fibre cement is a durable and low-maintenance option that can mimic the look of timber or other materials.

Before re-cladding your home, it’s essential to assess the condition of your existing cladding and determine the extent of the damage. If the damage is severe, it may be necessary to remove the entire cladding system and replace it with a new one. A professional re-cladding consultant can provide you with an assessment of the condition of your existing cladding and recommend the best course of action.


Repainting involves applying a fresh coat of paint to the exterior of your home. This process can give your home a new look and increase its curb appeal. Before repainting, it’s important to prepare the surface properly by cleaning it thoroughly and repairing any damage.

When choosing a paint, it’s important to consider the climate in your area. If you live in an area with high humidity or extreme temperatures, you may need a paint that is specifically designed to withstand these conditions. It’s also important to choose a paint that is suitable for the type of surface you are painting.

Choosing the right re-cladding consultant

Re-cladding and repainting your home are significant investments, and it’s important to choose the right consultant for the job. When choosing a consultant, consider their experience, reputation, and credentials. Look for consultants who have experience working on similar projects and who can provide references from previous clients.

It’s also important to choose a consultant who is licensed and insured. This will protect you in the event of any accidents or damage during the renovation process.
