Is your siding damaged or showing signs of dry rot? We Can Help.

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—designed to prolong the life of the outer layer of your home.

Portland Targeted Siding Repair Contractor

Neglecting Siding Repairs Can Result In Dry Rot

In wet climates, its 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 execute a targeted repair properly. 

Dry Rot Remediation

Dry Rot Is A Leading Cause Of Damage In Wood Structures

We repair dry rot by isolating the source of moisture intrusion and remediating the rotted structure. With surgical precision, our dry rot repair crews safely cut out and eliminate 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!

Portland Structural Dry Rot Repair

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 also perform a targeted repair.

The garage feels like a distinctly American component of the modern home. It’s a place you can park your car, store your extra stuff, do the laundry, or even convert into a shop or casual hang-out space. However you use it, the garage is also the unique part of your home that marks the transition between the outside world and the inner sanctity of your dwelling, which makes it especially susceptible to garage rot – areas where wood surfaces and structures are rotting.
