Six in seven Brits think extreme weather is here to stay

25岁的女高中生People in Britain are convinced extreme weather conditions are here to stay, with 85% believing it has become the norm.

Flooded roads, fallen trees and damaged fences are no longer seen as rare occurrences. In fact, a quarter of 2,000 adults surveyed admitted they had been victims of flooding in some form.

25岁的女高中生Brits also estimate they’ve spent upwards of £790 in the last five years on repairs to their homes as a result of weather damage.

And more than one in 10 have had to spend more than £2,000 on weather-related restorations.

25岁的女高中生One in five are also planning changes to their home to combat the increasingly dangerous weather conditions – with a fifth planning on using sandbags to fight bad weather conditions.

And with an estimated 3,300 homes hit by extreme floods across the UK in recent months, 73 per cent believe the government need to do more to help people who suffer damage to their home from such circumstances.

A spokesman from Andrews Sykes Hire, which commissioned the survey, said: “Diverse weather conditions are seemingly becoming more frequent in this country.

25岁的女高中生“As a result, more focus has been put on ensuring our homes are in the best shape possible to battle the elements thrown at them throughout the year.

“The numbers of people in the UK that have been affected by weather damage is quite staggering – and it highlights the importance in taking measures that are necessary to protect your property.”

The study also found seven in 10 adults believe the general weather patterns have changed locally in recent years – but 29 per cent aren’t sure if they have adequate home insurance to cover extreme weather damage.

25岁的女高中生Fence destruction, broken roof tiles and leaks were the most common damages to homes, with 22 per cent having been impacted by falling trees.

But while half of those polled are confident in taking on certain home repairs themselves, nearly a third don’t think they’ve got the skills to do a good job.

25岁的女高中生It also emerged high winds, rainstorms and flooding are among the extreme weather conditions concerning people the most according to respondents via OnePoll.

25岁的女高中生As a result, new garden fences, storing away loose garden furniture and clearing the gutters are among the jobs high on the list of changes Brits hope to make ahead of future troublesome conditions.

25岁的女高中生But after a wet winter, many are predicting a heatwave this summer, with July earmarked as the most likely month for Britain to be scorched.

It also emerged nearly seven in 10 think the unpredictable weather is a cause for concern in the next few years and beyond.

25岁的女高中生Strong gales are feared most in the next 12 months as adults expect these will cause the most damage to their property.

25岁的女高中生A spokesman from Andrews Sykes Hire, added: “Extreme weather conditions don’t always necessarily mean flooding, but often this is sadly the case.”

25岁的女高中生“As conditions continue to fluctuate between hold and cold – heating and cooling requirements are likely to change that little bit more at home and in work, too.”

25岁的女高中生“Many are keen to take on their own repair work, but regardless of whether it’s done yourself or by a professional, there are a range of products available at Andrews Sykes that will help deal with the job.”
