Surface water events associated with heavy rainfall, high groundwater levels, and tidal and river flooding can all pose significant threats. Groundsure Floodview uses a detailed water and drainage risk model devised by industry experts, and provides detail on all potential flood hazards – not just river and tidal.
Flood risk assessments help to safeguard your commercial clients against serious liabilities including property damage, disrupted services, destroyed stock and injured or inconvenienced staff.
For total clarity, the Groundsure Floodview indicates different flood hazards on separate maps; for increased peace of mind, if a site is identified as high risk, we can connect you with environmental insurance solutions and our IEMA qualified environmental consultants are on hand to provide guidance and support.
With a Groundsure Floodview, it’s the smart, simple way to be certain.

What is flood insurance?
Flood insurance is normally included as a standard part of your buildings insurance. At a basic level it covers your home and its contents against damage caused by flooding. You might not be covered for everything - for instance, replacing your damaged belongings ‘new for old’ or alternative accommodation may not be covered by your insurance policy. We strongly advise you check your policy. For further advice on obtaining insurance please see our dedicated flood guide. We highlight the possible availability of flood insurance within all of our residential and commercial interpreted reports.
