“SFW Construction was great. We got on their list and they kept us posted on where we were in the scheduling queue. Our job wasn’t huge, so many companies wouldn’t even take it on since it was less than $5,000—very frustrating. Not an issue for SFW! The crew showed up and got to work right away. They worked all day until it was completed; two rotted window sills and a targeted siding repair. They showed me what they found and although they looked for any add’l issues—they didn’t go ‘looking’ for something to fix. Very honest and upfront with me and I really appreciated it. I am thankful I went with them after looking for a couple of weeks for a good siding repair contractor.”

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. 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?
Massive Structural Damage Caused By A Fallen Tree In Portland
When high winds caused by a winter storm brought down an old Ash tree 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 structural 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 and partial west sides of the home.
SFW Construction performed all the work on this historic home without using any sub-contractors within about six weeks.
