Dam Easy Flood Barriers solution for Garages and larger openings

South Port, North Carolina

Holly and Chip contacted us in August 2020, concerned about the flood protection of their property in South Port, NC. they required flood protection for front and back door of their home, a double garage, a triple garage and a single entrance leading into garage.

Flooding History of North Carolina

Indeed, North Carolina – the land with breathtaking landscapes and moderate climate, has a significant average of 55-inch rainfalls and 16-inch snowfall in the mountain area, which may become a severe flooding threat for numerous property owners in the state.

North Carolina even holds its world records in the history of flooding observations. For example, the flood of 1916 was one of the most significant floods that have ever happened in North America. Since then, every locality in North Carolina has a least two significant floods under its belt.

Rainfall of 2017

The most devastating one happened not so long ago – in 2017. Heavy rainfall that year resulted in 10 inches under just three day period, causing severe flooding.  The flooding of 2017 had devastating long-term consequences for the community and economy of North Carolina.

It resulted in massive property loss, enormous damage to hundreds of homes, and numerous local businesses’ destruction.


River Overflows

Due to heavy snowfall in North Carolina’s mountain area and its massive melt in the springtime, this state is no stranger to floods caused by river overflow. In 2016 North Carolina put its name on the flooding map once again, when the US Geological Survey reported that at least 14 river gauges broke flooding records set by Hurricane Floyd Flooding in 1999.


As you see, Holly and Chip’s concern about flood-proofing their property is entirely justified by the statistic, geographic, and climate peculiarities of North Carolina.
