Resilient Home RetrofitsEmpowering homeowners to protect themselves from the risks of flooding.
What are resilient home retrofits?
Overland flooding happens when water flows over land, seeping into windows, doors and cracks in a home. This type of flooding is not covered by all insurance plans and the damage from it can pose significant financial, health and safety risks to homeowners. Resilient Home Retrofits aims to increase a home’s ability to withstand and recover from overland flooding through resiliency upgrades inside and outside of the home.
Resilient Home Retrofit Pilot Project
Helping homeowners prepare for the impacts of flooding.
Clean Foundation is seeking homeowners from specific communities within the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and the Town of New Glasgow to participate in a pilot project designed to help address overland flood risks to homes in both urban and rural areas of these regions.
Selected participants will receive a FREE flood risk assessment and a FREE home energy assessment. Based on these assessments, upgrades will be made to increase their home’s resiliency at no cost to the homeowner.
