Home Flood Protection Assessments

AET has partnered with the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo to help homeowners reduce their risk of basement flooding. Homeowners will receive an interactive and educational assessment experience, a detailed report, additional resources, and the opportunity for a follow-up conversation with their assessor.

AET is proud to deliver the Home Flood Protection Program – a flood risk reduction education program that was developed by the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo to help Canadians reduce their risk of basement flooding.

In roughly 60-90 minutes, our highly trained assessors work with homeowners to complete a 50-point visual assessment of potential sources of water entry into the home. Following the assessment, homeowners receive a confidential report that lists practical actions to:

  • Manage infiltration, sewer backup, and overland flood risk
  • Manage indoor humidity to reduce mold and mildew risk
  • Reduce risk of damage to structure and contents
  • Wisely manage water onsite
  • Understand risks as they relate to insurance coverage

 

Home Flood Protection Assessments are available in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Region of Ontario including multiple cities across Southwestern Ontario, as well as in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The Home Flood Protection Program is generously supported by the Intact Financial Corporation, the Province of Ontario, the City of Burlington, the City of Saskatoon, the Insurance Bureau of Canada and SGI CANADA.
