Hi all,


see pictures below, rusticated cladding on cavity 20mm, I do the painting (DIY), builder left those gaps in there whioch not only look awful, I bet they will encourage a lot of water to get inside the cavity.


Is he supposed to fill those, without me specifically asking for this, or starting an argument?


Is there a clause in building code anywhere which is asking him to install the pluigs? Roof is at 30 deg so plugs could be cut OK, but there are other roofs at 5deg and if he agrees to these ones then he knows that I will ask same to be done on the 5 deg roofs, which would be far more dificult (and of course time consuming). Builder is on labour only and already claims he ran out of time ...


Thank you.

Now add another pic from further away that gives it some context. Where are the rusticated boards?

This covers bevel back boards but the wedge packers are just one part of the detail.

Isn't that white stuff sealant filling it? I can't really see where the gaps are, and rusticated WBs  often produce a flat surface, but they look like bevel-back or a type of shiplap. Usually the builder will say that it is the painter that has to do a lot of the  filling. At least that is the case with  internal painting.
