During the Storm Check trial, resilience experts from Brisbane Sustainability Agency conducted assessments for a group of homeowners in South-East Queensland, to identify ways to help make their homes more resilient and understand what motivates homeowners to act on the recommendations of resilience experts. 

What is involved?  

Storm Check is an assessment carried out by resilience experts to help identify where your home is vulnerable to storm damage. The resilience experts will make maintenance and modifications recommendations to improve the resilience of your home. With storms becoming more severe and unpredictable, a Storm Check can help homeowners be better prepared for wild weather. 

Our experts provide guidance on how to achieve storm resilience for residential homes by providing: 

  • Maintenance advice 
  • Protection advice 
  • Resilience recommendations 

What are the benefits?  

  • Keep your family safe. Learn about storm risks, recommended building modifications and maintenance priorities so you can help keep a roof over your head and your family safe in severe storms.    
  • Save yourself the stress of organising repairs after a storm. Taking Storm Check recommended actions can help reduce the cost and inconvenience of clean up and repairs following a storm.  
  • Peace of mind. Get to really know your home and what you can do to help protect it from severe storms to be better prepared for wild weather. 

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.
