Multnomah County Building Had A Leak Through The Roof

August 20, 2014 by Katie Jones Tags : ,

Portland is known to be one of the wettest cities in the nation with a significant amount of rainfall throughout the year. However, summer is known to be the dry season for Portland and July is statistically the driest month of the year. The fact there is very little precipitation in the month of July would make it the most ideal time for roof repairs in Portland. Unfortunately, Multnomah County officials were in for a wet surprise when they decided to replace the roof on the Multnomah Building last month.

When It Rains, It Pours

According to an article published by Oregon Live, the roof on the Multnomah Building was nearly three decades ago and in need of replacement. After the removal of slab of concrete that enclosed the roof, unexpected and heavy rainfall flowed into the building. The rain didn’t cause any major damage but tiles and insulation must be replaced which will add to the cost of the roof replacement for the building.
