Water was getting behind the siding due to improper construction when it was initially built. SFW Construction sent two carpenters to my house. They quickly determined the root cause of the issue, explained what they would do to repair it—and gave me a ballpark estimate of what it would cost. They then went to work to start fixing the leaking window. SFW exceeded my expectations, and the cost was a little under the ballpark estimate I was given. Very professional, considerate, and didn’t waste any time or materials. I will not hesitate to contact SFW again.

They are absolutely fantastic!

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.

Window Leak Repair Experts

Most window leaks happen during wind-driven rainstorms and are the result of improperly installed window flashing. Some leaks need re-caulking, while others manifest water intrusion happening elsewhere.

Do your windows leak when it rains?

With the right Tyvek water-resistive barrier and window flashing installation, you can keep your home safe from the weather conditions we deal with here in the Pacific Northwest. So, if you have a leaking window or skylight, remember that certain contractors are qualified to fix this issue. Do your research and understand the method behind the window leak repair; it will save you time, money, and the hassle of having multiple people touch your project—multiple times.

If you have a leaking window, skylight, or door—you’re in the right place.
