Tips for associated trades

Installing insulation correctly is crucial for both the builders of a domestic residence as well as for the occupiers. This video, created by the Master Builders Association of Victoria (MBAV), with support from ICANZ and its partners, informs associated trades why maintaining the integrity of the building envelope will ensure unpaid rework is kept to a minimum.

Key points include:

  • Maintaining the thermal building envelope – what’s in it for you?
  • What’s the main consideration?
  • Displacing or discarding insulation
  • Penetrating or modifying insulation & walls wraps

These practices contribute to ensuring the integrity of the building envelope and therefore provide a better result for both you and your customer.
