MATERIALS - BUILDING
most common wall materials in ascending order of value with useful
fieldbook codes are as follows:
(w) - weatherboard (wb)
with cement rendering (bc).
a number code used by the South Australian Valuer General is as
most common roof materials in ascending order of value are:
steel (cs) (do not use "iron")
asbestos cement (cac)
cotta tile (tct)
some areas colorbond is as expensive as cement tile. An alternative
number code used by the South Australian Valuer General is as
materials used in the house can be described using the above codes.
For example, ac/ct means a house with asbestos cement walls and a
cement tile roof. Trade names such as 'fibro" should be avoided
whenever possible. Corrugated steel or corrugated metal (cm) is used instead of "corrugated
iron" as the material is steel and not iron.
