British Home Owners Lack Flood Protection According To

LONDON, UK (RPRN) 11/05/09 — The flooding over the weekend nudged the rising concern about houses being built on floodplains and the cost of repairing houses affected, according to, the UK’s largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen.


The weekend news has been filled with flood warnings and flooding in parts of the UK, with Scotland and Wales being hit especially badly. Consequently, insurance companies are preparing to pay out huge amounts for renovation, relocation, and rebuilding. The true extent of the flooding cannot yet be judged as more floods are expected.


Ottokar Rosenberger, Sales and Marketing Director of, commented: “Reports have revealed that there is a lack of knowledge about the land being used for housing developments. Developers are being distracted by money-making potential, rather than having future home owners at the centre of their planning.”


Government money is starting to speed up the progression of flood defenses; however, there's a call for insurance companies to lead the way in protecting home owners from flooding, as housing developers are not taking enough steps to avoid these tragic situations.


When a house has been damaged by flooding, the extent of the damage rapidly increases inch by inch and, research published earlier this year by Halifax claims that the average claim for a flood damaged property is £20,000. helps home improvers find recommended tradesmen quickly and easily. You can choose from 24 different trades and find tradesmen such as local builders, floor fitters or a registered electrician.
