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.

  • Buying a property at risk of flooding and want to know what this means for your investment

  • Buying or selling a property and need to know how much it will cost to protect it from flooding

  • Identify if your property is at risk and type of flooding which can impact you

  • Identify the level of risk and protection required to get flood insurance

  • Highlight any potential ground conditions or obstacles to installation

  • The flood report will discuss your specifications and requirements such as timescales, feasibility, implementation, and passive or manual systems.

This process also ensures you are not buying any product which is not essential to protecting your home. 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:

  • Location analysis

  • 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.
