Updated Requirements for Wet Area Flooring

Can you provide an update on the new (Nov 21) requirements for flooring in wet areas relating to sealing requirements, floating floors and so on.

Hi John,

BRANZ put out this article that might answer your questions http://www.buildmagazine.org.nz/assets/PDF/Build-186-37-Design-Right-E3-AS1-And-Wet-Area-Flooring.pdf

Basically, it’ll be on a case-by-case basis by your local council if you deviate away from the options specified in the standard.

Kind regards,
