With so much rain in the Portland area, all the water has to go somewhere. For many homeowners, this could mean a crawlspace or basement, an area of a yard, or even on top of your roof. To make matters worse, drainage issues generally show themselves during the worst storms of the year — turning the problem into an emergency.
Generally, drainage problems cannot be solved by just blocking obvious areas of water intrusion. In order for the issue to be properly solved, the root of the issue must be addressed or a pump solution must be installed to divert water.
