Why do I need a survey?
Our flood mitigation solutions are bespoke based on these findings. This provides you with options that are relevant to your situation and an estimated cost for each solution, so you have complete picture to make a decision.
The flood survey will highlight if you are in a high flood risk area, and identify all of the potential weak points where water may enter your home. This process outlines the standard of protection required, and provides a guide to our installers for when they return. This reduces your installation costs as any potential risks are known from the start of the process, therefore we can accurately quote for the installation and arrive prepared.

In some circumstances, a flood survey may be required to sell your home and you may need to have adequate protection in order to do so. Our report will help you determine your level of risks, and provide product recommendations, which may help in the sale of your property or get insurance.
The report will include:
Photographic evidence of weak points
Product recommendations to mitigate flood risk
Standard of protection required
Measurements for bespoke manufacture
The survey also allows you an opportunity to meet with our team and to answer any questions you may have regarding your flood risk and products we recommend.
