It’s that time of year. It’s the rainy season. For a Portland construction defect lawyer, that means clients are calling about water intrusion claims.
If you have ever built a home, or if you live in an older home that needs some TLC, you know that construction and maintenance is an ongoing process. In the rainy, wet Pacific Northwest, our biggest foe is the water. Improper flashing or inappropriate waterproofing can spell major problems for your home. Water intrusion can lead to dry rot and dry rot repairs are expensive.
