Whitehouse were appointed by Liverpool City Council to install Property Level Resilience measures at thirty two homes along the Netherley Brook.

£300,000 was made available under the Government’s Flood Resilience Community Pathfinder Scheme.

Whitehouse provided a complete ‘one stop solution’ from initial surveys to installation of a variety of flood protection measures including flood doors, automatic airbricks, re-pointing and protective brickwork sealant. All products are Kitemarked, with Whitehouse Flood Doors Kitemarked to the highest PAS 1188:2014 standard.

Residents were engaged in pre-start meetings to enable them to form relationships at an early stage with our Flood Mitigation Teams, ask any questions they may have and choose the most appropriate flood protection measures most suited to their needs.

Post-installation Homeowner Packs were provided, ensuring homeowners have the knowledge and confidence to deploy the measures fitted in a timely fashion in the event of a flood. Emergency contact details are provided, ensuring should a problem occur, help is on hand for the homeowner.

A flood group formed by local residents, alongside Shadow Environment Minister Maria Eagle, have praised the work of Whitehouse, with local councillor Janet Kent saying they “have been good friends to local people”.
