If you’re renovating your home, it's the perfect opportunity to make it safer and stronger for natural hazards.
When building or renovating, you need to consider whether your property has increased vulnerability to natural hazards.
When planning your new build, talk to your licensed building practitioner, designer or an engineer about what designs, construction methods and materials will help make your new home strong and safe in a natural disaster.
You’ll need to consider the type of land your home will sit on and how that land will perform during a natural disaster.
You will need to find out about your options for insuring your building project and also your new or renovated home.
