Being a homeowner can be challenging, especially when unexpected problems arise where you need a contractor. If you have not hired a contractor recently, the search can feel time-consuming and daunting. However, before you hire just any contractor or handyman, we recommend doing some research to understand your problem, what the solution entails, and how to pick the right contractor. Picking the right contractor will be well worth all the effort you choose to put into the search as it could save you from having to re-do the project in the future

“Project started with SFW painting the outside of my house and garage. 40+ years since the house had any paint. SFW took care of some repairs before the paint team could begin. The carpenter team and pre-paint prep teams were wonderful. Everyone was thorough and professional about containing and cleaning up the old lead house paint. The finished repairs and the new paint job looks spectacular.”

“We asked SFW Construction to repair dry rot and replace railings on our deck. We are delighted with their work – starting with the team supervisor and crew. They were always on time every morning, very clear and respectful in communicating updates, and maintained/cleaned up the worksite well. The results (the deck support and railings) look terrific! We would certainly use them again. Thank you, SFW Construction. ”

Common Signs Of Dry Rot

Dry rot, also known as wood rot, is a serious problem that can threaten the structural integrity of your home by eating away and deteriorating the wood. While discovering dry rot you may also notice the discoloration of wood surfaces, a dank mildew smell, or areas in your floor that “give” when you walk upon it are all common indications of dry rot in your home.

Dry rot occurs in areas that are subject to excessive moisture including, but not limited to:

  • Areas of your kitchen and bathroom
  • Deck floorboards, ledger, and posts
  • Floor covering, subfloor, and joists
  • Framing around windows and doors
  • Inside posts, beams, joists, and sills
  • Roof shingles, gutters, soffit, and fascia
  • Walls, baseboards, stiles, and rails

Dry Rot Repair And Structural Restoration

Dry rot is a wood fungus that is extremely destructive to healthy wood. It typically takes hold in wood that is moist or wet and can occur in many places of your home. The history of the term ‘dry rot’ goes back to the 1700s when British ships that had been in use on the ocean were docked and dried out, then promptly began to crumble. Though it appeared that the rotted condition was caused by drying, it was already present but came to fruition once the boat structure dried. Detecting and removing wood infected with dry rot is critical because, just like those British ships, the wooden structure of your home is at high risk when deteriorated by dry rot fungus.

If you suspect you have dry rot, give SFW Construction a call! After detecting dry rot, determining the extent of damage is essential, followed by the removal of all wood infected by the dry rot fungus. Like the decay that causes a tooth cavity, we must eliminate dry rot fungus to restore health to the wood in your Beaverton home. Addressing dry rot sooner than later is essential because – just like tooth decay – the sooner you catch it, the less repair work needs to be done. Dry rot eats away at the aspect of healthy wood that makes it strong and firm, robbing it of its ability to do its job in your home. When dry rot has advanced in any wood structure of your home, the wood will begin to decay, fall apart and crumble.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around A Window

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.

Targeted home repairs focus on the source of your problem, rather than the treatment of your problem. Many contractors will simply patch damaged siding with new siding, or worse sell you a complete re-siding project—and call it good. On the other hand, SFW Construction investigates the underlying symptoms, usually dry rot that caused the siding to fail in the first place.

The garage feels like a distinctly American component of the modern home. It’s a place you can park your car, store your extra stuff, do the laundry, or even convert into a shop or casual hang-out space. However you use it, the garage is also the unique part of your home that marks the transition between the outside world and the inner sanctity of your dwelling, which makes it especially susceptible to garage rot – areas where wood surfaces and structures are rotting.
