What is Included in an Assessment?
In roughly 60-90 minutes, a trained Assessor works with the homeowner to complete a 50-point visual assessment of potential sources of water entry into the home. A confidential, easy to read report identifies top ranked actions to:
- Reduce infiltration, sewer back-up, and overland flood risks
- Manage indoor humidity to reduce mold and mildew risks
- Reduce risk of damage to structure and contents
- Wisely manage water onsite
- Understand risks as they relate to insurance coverage
A live customer service helpline, personal follow-up from the Assessor, and seasonal maintenance reminders provide additional support to homeowners as they work to protect their homes from flooding.
How Can I Contribute to the National Rollout of the Program?
While participating in a Home Flood Protection Assessment, homeowners have the option to volunteer for a confidential University of Waterloo Home Flood Protection Study. This study tallies program impacts and provides critical insights that will help us adapt and streamline the program for national rollout. Lessons learned through the study will inform the development of a nationwide flood risk reduction program that will provide Canadians with the practical resources they need to reduce flood risk.
