Property Flood Resilience
Homeowners and businesses can install Property Flood Resilience (PFR) measures that will help to minimise the damage and speed up the repair time of a flood. PFR can be installed to make individual properties more resistant, by aiming to prevent or limit flood water getting in.
There are also adaptation measures which can be installed internally that can improve resilience and reduce the impact if flood water does enter your property.
PFR does involve some early expense but can often reduce the distress and cost of repairs caused by flooding.
It should be noted that PFR measures offer a significant improvement in terms of protection compared to traditional sandbags which are often inefficient and have to be moved between heavy rainfall.
Always make sure you work with approved manufacturers and suppliers, ensuring your products carry a kite mark certification and are approved to the current British Standard.
