Factsheet: Refitting your home to cope better with flooding
If your home, community venue or business premises is a traditional, older building, there’s a lot you can do to reduce the impact of flooding or other extreme weather.
Our eight-page guide will help you choose building materials and methods that will make a big difference to getting your home or building back into use quickly if you are flooded in the future.
If you’re still refitting after last winter’s floods, or just doing some home improvements, these practical tips will help you.
While you’re doing improvement works, it’s also an ideal time to make some changes that will improve your building’s energy efficiency.
