“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.

  • Areas of your kitchen and bathroom
  • Deck floorboards, ledger, and posts
  • Floor covering, subfloor, and joists

  • Inside posts, beams, joists, and sills
  • Roof shingles, gutters, soffit, and fascia
  • Walls, baseboards, stiles, and rails

It typically takes hold in wood that is moist or wet and can occur in many places of your home. Usually, wood rot starts from the inside out, becoming a problem if not taken care of before it spreads, leaving you in a structure unsafe and needing repair.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around A Window

Dry Rot Repairs|


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.

Wood Decay

Wood decay can be a big problem for both new and experienced homeowners but particularly plagues those of us who live in the often damp Pacific Northwest. Despite its colloquial name, dry rot is most often caused by communities of fungi growing in wood with high moisture saturation.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around Your Garage

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.
