Not exactly. Site Manager showed me the sagged truss in the ceiling. He said that timber probably just wasn't strong.

That's correct, it meets their minimum standards in NSW. Standards changed in 2010. Until then, all shower walls needed to waterproofed up to 1800mm. I wonder why would the standard…

That's exactly right. Waterproofing is an integral part and must be ensured that it's superior quality rather than bare minimum. It's not they have to go out of their way…

I did get sarking in walls as well as roof. Was just curious because wall sarking wasn't mentioned in any of the paperwork. Roof sarking is included…

Do you know if sarking in walls is mandatory in NSW? Do you know of anyone who didn't get it?

That's good to hear. We are using them too for plantation shutters.
Did you get Hinged or Pivot? Thanks.

Hi all,
