Portland Underground Oil Tanks

Many thousands of older homes in Portland, Oregon were once heated by oil furnaces that pulled the oil from oil tanks buried in the home's land. Not all of these oil tanks were registered or permitted when installed. Over time these old tanks can leak and spill toxic oil into the ground. Oregon DEQ requires oil tank decommissioning when these old leaking oil tanks are found. Checking for a hidden buried oil tank, often called a "tank sweep", is a common part of a home inspection conducted on an older home in our area.

What My Clients Are Saying

You're looking to buy a house and reading reviews because this is a major decision. We entered the market to purchase a home very inexperienced and skeptical. We now own a house thanks to Stephen and his network. Stephen will be our first choice whenever we decide to buy or sell a property in the future.
