Are you at risk from flooding?
The Environment Agency estimates around 5.2 million properties in England, or one in six properties, are at risk of flooding. More than 5 million people live and work in 2.4 million properties that are at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, one million of which are also at risk of surface water flooding. A further 2.8 million properties are susceptible to surface water flooding alone.
The Environment Agency website provide free guidance on your local Flood Map. Alternatively, the government’s Long Term Flood Risk Assessment page provide basic indication on the likelihood that a place could be flooded in the future.

- Flood defences such as anti-flood air bricks
- Door defence such as Flood Angel single and double doors or flood barriers

Airbricks, brickwork and pointing are all key areas for consideration when flood protecting a property.
