Ask an Architect the online building design, inspection and advice service of The Australian Institute of Architects, has urged home owners to put safety first when dealing with flooded or water damaged homes by having professional trained people deal with roofing, gas and electrical services. 

The advice comes as NSW is experiencing widespread flooding and storm damage from this week’s wild weather in and around the North off Sydney.
