Flood Control

MacLennan are specialists in above and below ground flood prevention. Our surveyors can assess any potential problems quickly and expertly, recommending only the required measures to ensure your property is protected from flooding.

Our flood control systems are suitable for large commercial properties as well as domestic households.

MacLennan are able to supply and install the appropriate flood barriers or even flood proof door to ensure your property is protected from flooding. Other systems only provide barriers to openings which fail when water enters through walls and floors. The MacLennan system is a complete whole property flood prevention system.

Flood Prevention Rather Than Remediation

According to the Environment Agency, ‘over 5 million people in England and Wales live and work in properties that are at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea’. We have all watched the news in recent times showing flooding countrywide due to heavy rain and storms. There are on-going concerns that ground that has been saturated with all the heavy rain could lead to localised surface water flooding.

Recent events show that flooding is getting more prevalent year on year, leaving people homeless, prized possessions lost and causing untold heartache to those living with the aftermath – as well as the astronomical cost of making your home habitable again after it has been flooded.

Many property owners in this situation cannot get home insurance or if they can it is exorbitantly priced. Property owners can’t get peace of mind, worrying every time a flood warning is issued. Quite frankly it’s outrageous that property owners have to worry and owners whose property is prone to flooding are stuck. These property owners can’t move, they can’t carry the cost of remedial works every couple of years or in some cases every year. How long is it acceptable to live in a caravan in your front garden?

All of this could be prevented, ensuring peace of mind and a flood free home. There needs to be a focus on flood prevention methods as opposed to flood remediation. At Maclennan we can design, supply and install a complete guaranteed system for any flooding situation – for a lot less than constant remediation, and in most cases complete with the industry’s most comprehensive guarantees and insurances allowing properties to be re-insured. The plans we put together are built for your property and incorporate, but are not limited to, flood barriers and flood proof doors. download PDF
