The greater Seattle area might not be known for flooding, but with the mountains close by, every winter we get at least one large snowfall followed by warmer temperatures and torrential rains. The result is flooding. It isn’t a surprise to those that live along the rivers or in the flood plains, but if you live up in the foothills and come home to find your basement flooded by a broken washer supply line, frozen pipe or a plugged toilet, the devastation is no less tragic or costly. A few times a year, we get calls from clients who have had their basement flooded. When they get to replacing the flooring, many are looking into decorative concrete options not just for their beauty, but because a decorative concrete floor would be impervious to damage from flood waters should the space ever get flooded again.
