Jewson Self-Build and UK Flood Barriers

So, you are thinking about building your own home?  What a fantastic opportunity to get everything exactly as you want it.

No doubt you’ve spent many hours researching new technologies and materials and weaving the best solutions that you can find into the fabric of your building. However, have you considered your flood risk?

2012 was the wettest year on record and according to the Met Office every home is potentially at risk of flash flooding. If you are intending to build responsibly and sustainably, then you cannot ignore the need to do something about flood mitigation at the early stage of your building design. Without such protection in place in the future, you may not be able to get insurance.

The Jewson Self Build team and UK Flood Barriers have brought their expertise together to offer sustainable flood mitigation solutions to future proof your home. Working with the Jewson Team in branch, we can help you to understand what you can do to include these costs effective measures into your new building.

These affordable, simple and innovative solutions need to be considered at the design and planning and are available to you through the Jewson Self-Build Team.
