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 sewer back-up and overland flood risks
- Reduce moisture levels that cause mould and mildew growth
- Reduce damage to contents and valuables
- 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.
