This study identified vulnerable legacy house types across Australia and developed cost-effective retrofits for mitigation damage during windstorms. These evidence-based strategies will aid policy formation and decision making by Government and industry, and provide guidelines detailing various options and benefits to homeowners and the industry for retrofitting typical at-risk houses in Australia. The final report presents an overview of the research approach used for this project including the selection of house types, the development of the Vulnerability and Adaptation to Wind Simulation software and the Internet-based guidelines, Weather the Storm.
