Has your home been affected by the floods?
The likely answer is..yes! At the last count over 16,000 homes are still without power across the UK with many still stranded. We all know the immediate effect this is having..but what about more permanent problems?
With water streaming in through keyholes and letterboxes, it's easy to see how devastating the damage has been over the last few months. However, it's also important to think about the long term.

With the swelling of riverbanks and coastlines, comes the swelling of wooden doors. Fenestration in England is not built to endure long periods underwater - of course it's not! WHilst engineered wooden doors will hold up against rain, wind and the wildest of elements - theres not a lot that will stand up to 2ft of water.
So the real question is - how to move forward? When the water finally (hopefully..) subsides - how do we go about rescuing our homes. Our first suggestion would be to get a surveyor round to truly evaluate the extent of the damage. The next steps would be to start thinking about whether you want to try and rebuild what you already had or to go for something different entirely.
