A Construction Defect Results In Multiple Necessary Home Repairs

Many people think dry rot only occurs in older homes. This is not the case. Many newer homes start rotting prematurely due to a lack of quality of products used, workmanship, or design (aka a construction defect). In this case, we ran into all 3, but this defect was primarily due to the poor design of the roof cricket.

Targeted Siding Repairs

Why Siding Repairs Are Important

Siding is the last 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 so it can’t cause the inner components to 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 move past 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 is qualified and experienced properly executing 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 your home’s wood dry rot affected areas.

Furthermore, we have the experience and training to ensure that the water-born 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.

Trusted Partners And Proven Products

We only work with the best. Our construction crews are factory certified installers for the best brands and products to ensure your siding and dry rot repair job is done right and the problem won’t return again.
