With the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, the need for robust flood defences to protect our homes and businesses is also increasing. Investing in flood protection measures not only safeguards our properties but also provides peace of mind in the face of unpredictable weather patterns. In this blog post, we will delve into the benefits of various flood defence methods we offer here at Stormguard Floodplan, and why you should consider starting off 2024 by floodproofing your property.

We offer a range of flood defence methods here at Stormguard Floodplan, including:

Flood Barriers
Flood barriers act as a first line of defence, forming a protective barrier against rising waters. These barriers are versatile, adaptable to various environments and property types. Whether deploying temporary barriers for short-term protection or installing permanent structures, they are effective in diverting and controlling floodwaters, avoiding potential damage to your property.

Sump Pumps
Sump pumps play a crucial role in preventing water accumulation in basements or lower levels of a building or property. These pumps automatically remove excess water, keeping the area dry and free from potential water damage. Investing in a reliable sump pump not only protects your property from immediate flood threats but also safeguards against long-term structural issues associated with water intrusion.

Flood Fencing
Flood fencing provides an additional layer of defence, especially in areas prone to flash flooding or storm surges. These fences are designed to redirect or slow down the flow of water, reducing the risk of inundation. Flood fencing can be customised to suit different landscapes and property layouts, making it a versatile and effective flood defence method.

Air Bricks
Air bricks are an often overlooked yet crucial component of flood defences. These brick-like structures allow air circulation in the building’s foundations while preventing water entry. Installing specially designed flood resistant air bricks ensures that your property remains well ventilated without compromising on flood protection.

Tanking involves applying a waterproof coating to the walls and floors of a building, creating an impermeable barrier against water penetration. This method is particularly effective in basements or cellars where water admission is a common concern. Tanking not only protects against flooding but also improves the structural integrity of your property.
