Many homeowners in flood prone areas have struggled to get insurance for their homes due to the high costs involved. Anybody living in a high risk flood areas should consider the following where possible...

  • Water-compatible internal walls which can be hygienically cleaned.
  • Water-compatible flooring made from tiles and concrete or silicon-mineral/magnesium oxide boards which can be cleaned.
  • Sump and pump systems that can remove flood water as it enters a property.
  • Raised electrics with sockets higher up the wall, above the flood line, to prevent damage to electrical circuits.
  • Plinths: Raising electrical goods and kitchen cupboards off the floor which can help protect them and their contents from flood water.
  • Water-compatible stairs using concrete, hardwood or steel stairways, which can be cleaned.
