The NSW government has introduced legislation governing insulated cladding and in particular vinyl cladding with polystyrene insulation ( refer to the posting below ).
At this point in time it only applies to buildings of two or more storeys, which encompasses all two storey homes at this time. Why single storey homes with cladding comprising of polystyrene insulation are not included, I suspect, is because of the sheer number involved.
There are tens of thousands of single dwelling homes with insulated vinyl cladding containing polystyrene and polystyrene cladding that has been rendered in NSW.
