I have had the opportunity to meet up with Susan Grady from Grady Interiors recently and have been very impressed. She is dedicated to helping her clients express themselves with interior design. Susan acts like a guide, helping to facilitate and organize her clients vision for comfort and class in their home. She is honest, reliable and extremely personable. Most of Susan's clientele tends to be mid to high-end as she specializes in beautiful custom kitchen and bath design however, I learned that Susan is delighted to work with any design project and budget need. I truly appreciate how she makes kitchen and bathroom cabinet and design aesthetically gorgeous but also very functional and practical. Susan has all sorts of unique tricks to maximize storage and functionality in a room, which is very important to me since I live in a condo. Rest assured whether the project is big or small, Susan will go the extra mile to ensure quality and customer satisfaction.

Susan is an Interior Designer that we have hired repeatedly. Her eye for detail and skill in pulling colors together in a way that delights the eye is remarkable. She has an exceptional talent for understanding the tastes of her client and helping them envision things they had not even considered and then producing a design concept that helps to clearly visualize the end result. Besides her skill in Interior Design, Kitchen Design, and Bath Design, her like-ability factor is off the charts. One meeting with Susan and you cannot help but be moved by her genuine care and passion for making her client happy and enjoying the best possible experience while creating their new dream home.

Grady Interiors
As I was nearing the end of my remodel project, I contacted Grady Interiors here in Portland to come help me with the final touches. She helped my with some space planning issues, furniture choices and did some quick fixes on some of decisions I had made on my own. My office was pretty much done and decorated, but it never felt right to me but I couldn’t pin point it. Susan pointed out that my metal valance to my shade was the wrong color and I should paint it lighter to match the trim. It was the simplest of fixes, but it transformed the space. Susan was very helpful and my only regret is that I hadn’t hired her as my interior designer sooner.

Home insurance sometimes covers water damage from storm-related accidents. However, most plans do not cover damage resulting from lack of maintenance or floods. For the latter, homeowners should purchase flood insurance.
Regular maintenance will reduce the risk of water damage.
  • Clean and maintain gutters so rainwater flows properly. Direct downspouts away from the house.
  • Repair any roof damage.
  • Use drain snakes to clean clogs. Chemical cleaners erode pipes.
  • Do not place outdoor plants with invasive roots near pipes, septic tanks, sprinkler systems, or drainage fields.
  • Make note of the water bill. A sudden, random spike in charges could indicate a leak.
