SFW Construction came out and repaired two areas of dry rot around our second-story windows. The crew was great and did a great job on the carpentry. All of our conversations about the work were very clear and understandable. I recommend this company for work on your house!

Targeted Siding Repairs

Why Siding Repairs Are Paramount

Siding is the first layer of defense in your home’s building envelope system. Your siding protects your moisture barrier, flashing, and other waterproofing components.

In short, it keeps the water out and protects the structural components from dry rot. SFW Construction performs targeted siding repairs designed to prolong the life of the outer layer of your home.

Neglecting Siding Repairs Can Result In Dry Rot

The Pacific Northwest has a wet climate, and it is critical to keep all that moisture out of your home. If water can penetrate your building envelope, it can lead to other issues; such as mold and mildew, dry rot, and structural damage.

Siding defects and damages can be a direct path to moisture intrusion. Siding repairs need to be taken care of as soon as possible by a qualified, experienced siding repair contractor who understands how to properly execute a targeted repair. 

Dry Rot Remediation

Dry Rot Is A Leading Cause Of Damage In Wood Structures

We offer a lasting solution to dry rot by isolating the source of moisture intrusion and repairing the rotted structure. With surgical precision, our dry rot repair crews will safely cut out and eliminate the areas affected by dry rot.

Furthermore, we have the experience and training to ensure that the water-borne fungus will never come back to harm you or your home again!

Neglecting Dry Rot Can Lead To Structural Problems

If a screwdriver or knife can easily penetrate your structure you could have dry rot. We are professionals at uncovering the root cause and fixing a variety of exterior siding, wood framing, and structural issues with your home.

The rain in Oregon and Washington can penetrate the siding of your home and cause dry rot in wood studs, beams, joists, rafters, or trusses. This doesn’t mean you have to start over. It just means you need a dry rot contractor who can perform a targeted siding repair as well.

Do Your Windows Leak When It Rains?

4 MIN READ

Do you notice your windows leaking when it rains? Leaking windows cause household damages. A leaking window presents many household complications. Unwanted water seeping into your home and down your walls can cause structural and property damages as well as electrical hazards. Sopping wet carpet is not healthy, and wet floors are slippery and present potential slip and fall situations. Keeping warm and dry is a priority, as is keeping the rain and moisture outside of your home.

Portland Window Leak Repair Experts

Many homes in the Pacific Northwest are built by cutting corners, without the best products, and improperly installed by unskilled people. Even if they do have the best products, many siding contractors lack the knowledge and craftsmanship to do the job right—the first time. When it comes to weatherproofing homes in the Pacific Northwest, knowing how to and executing a comprehensive siding repair or replacement is essential to preventing window leaks, skylight leaks, door leaks, roof, and chimney chase leaks.

With the right weather-resistant barrier and window flashing installation, you can keep your home safe from the weather conditions we deal with here in the Pacific Northwest. So, next time you have a leaking window or a leaking skylight, remember that not just anyone can fix this issue. Do your research and understand the method behind the window leak repair; it will save you time, money, and the hassle of having multiple people touch your project—multiple times.

Atmospheric River Causes Structural Damage To Portland Home

When high winds caused by an "atmospheric river" storm brought an old Ash tree down in the historic neighborhood of Marylhurst in Portland—SFW Construction came out immediately, tarped off all active leaks, assessed the damage, and quickly developed a remediation plan.

Most of the roof damage, water intrusion, framing, and siding damage was on the South side of the home. It was so extensive that we were forced to rebuild the southern and western walls from the studs and sheathing to the weather-resistant barrier and window flashing—to the new siding installed on the entire south side and partial west side of the home.

SFW Construction performed all the work on this historical home without the use of any sub-contractors within about six weeks.
