Leaky homes are houses that, due to poor design or incorrect installation of building material, allow water to penetrate the building.
The water is soaked up by the framing and, due to the lack of a cavity system, there is no air flow to dry the timber out. This in turn allows mould to grow on the timber, which then rots.
Houses that leak are most commonly built from the early 90s onwards. They are usually houses built using monolithic cladding systems and designs that include parapets, no eaves and cantilevered decks.
