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.

Portland Structural Dry Rot Repair Project

We discovered structural dry rot early on in the project and decided it was best to replace the existing glulam beams. Improper flashing led to the failure in the moisture barrier between the home/garage and the bridge. To replace the rotted beams we had an engineer the structure which included replacing both beams from the home to the garage for the footbridge.
