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 recently showing flooding country wide due to heavy rain. 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. download PDF
