Water in the basement is a very serious flood damage situation and should be handled immediately. When your basement is flooded it may seem like it will cost an arm and a leg to pay for the repairs. Here at Brighten Restoration, we believe in doing great work with the Gresham community for an affordable price. We accept all Insurances, and can help you file a claim so that you’re not alone. We also know that not all claims will be covered and sometimes there may be an Out-Of-Pocket expense to you. This is why all our inspections and estimates are free, and we are up front with everything we need to do before we begin work.
At Brighten Restoration, we know how to perform complete basement water damage repair, flood cleanup, and structural drying and will come and take care of any flooded basements or basement water damage as soon as possible before more flood damage occurs. Give us a call as soon as possible if you are experiencing basement or crawlspace water damage.
If the water is still leaking or spewing, the first thing you want to do is stop it from causing further damage. Teach everyone in the home or business where and how you can turn off the water. You can usually find the shutoff in the basement, on a hose bib outside, or near the street.
The area now known as Gresham was first settled in 1851 by brothers Jackson and James Powell, who claimed land under the Donation Land Claim Act of 1850. They were soon joined by other pioneer families, and the area came to be known as Powell’s Valley.
Gresham was incorporated in 1905, the year of the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition; its population at the time was 365. Lewis Shattuck, son of a pioneer family, was the first mayor. The town’s economy was fueled largely by farming, including berries, grapes, and vegetables.
Today, Gresham is home to attractions such as the Veterans Memorial Park.
