About storm resilience
Research shows us that future climate change will lead to more frequent and more damaging weather in Australia, including severe storms, hail, tropical cyclones and bushfires.
There is a need to adapt to make homes more resilient, which can help protect homes and people and reduce the stress, inconvenience and unexpected costs of cleaning up after a storm.
Storm Check focuses on protecting the building envelope by making maintenance and modification recommendations that go beyond building code requirements for South-East Queensland.
What do we mean by severe weather and natural disasters?
These terms refer to the range of weather events that have the potential to cause damage and affect the safety and wellbeing of people and communities, including bushfires, tropical cyclones and severe storms.
