Flood Protection for Properties in the UK

If you didn’t know already, the UK government created a fund which offers grants to homeowners who have suffered from flooding, allowing them to rebuild their homes in a more flood resistant fashion. There were a large number of which have been severely damaged in the past, hence the government taking action. Many of them have been redeveloping their homes by trying out various different flood defence strategies. We have seen homes which have redesigned floors of the bottom floor so that instead of them being fixed, they will be able to rise as the water fills in the cavity below the floor, protecting the floor and the property within the room. We have also seen homes which have waterproofed their bottom floor, so that no water can enter the home in the first place; or even homes which have been incrementally raised so that they are above the flood line.
