Active Water Leak Repair Service

“SFW Construction was able to respond to an active water leak in our Portland townhome’s roof. The crew quickly identified the source of the water leak (a rafter nail that had worked its way out of the roof and through the shingles). They provided an accurate estimate of the scope of work. Let me know the unknowns related to rafter water damage upfront, and execute a high-quality repair for a reasonable price!”

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.

Unwanted water seeping into your home and down your walls can cause structural and property damage and electrical hazards.

Windows are an essential component of the house you live in. As intermediaries between the outside and inside of your home, windows are especially vulnerable to large amounts of moisture. Any water damage around a window indicates that the frame is not functioning correctly or that water from the outside of the home is leaking inside—which will eventually cause the wood around your window frame to rot.
