Professional Dry Rot Repair Experts

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. ”

Signs and Symptoms of Wood Rot

Detect wood rot via signs and symptoms on the interior and exterior of your home. Caused by a fungus that grows on moist wood, wood rot occurs predominantly in areas of the house with excessive moisture, including the bathroom, kitchen, and basement. The most prominent places for wood rot are in the framing around windows and doors, beneath floor coverings, baseboards, joists, deck floorboards, roof shingles, gutters, soffit, and fascia.

Signs Of Wood Rot

Typical signs of wood rot entail a dank mildewy odor, discoloration of wood surfaces, and soft areas on your floor that “give” when you walk on it. Especially pernicious and advanced wood rot, it sprawls like cotton- and cobweb-like growths on wood surfaces or wood that crumbles upon contact.

Indications Your Home Has Wood Rot And Needs Repair:

  • Wooden floors, surfaces, and structures are unusually dark and discolored
  • Wood surfaces and structures shrink and become loose
  • A musty, earthy, fungus-like odor
  • Cotton, cobweb, or mushroom-like growths on wood surfaces and structures
  • Wood flooring sinks and has areas that “give” when walked upon
  • Wood easily crumbles when bearing weight or appears dilapidated

Essential Value of Home Wood Rot Inspection

Located on the shores of the blustery Atlantic Ocean, Bostonians are no strangers to wind, rain, and snow. Over time, the onslaught of elements permeates and begins to deteriorate even the sturdiest of homes. And where there is moist or wet wood, the fungus that creates wood rot will take hold.

Hiring a professional is sensible because wood rot removal is an exacting process wherein the fungus that causes the rot must be entirely removed or it will continue to proliferate. Our finely honed wood rot repair and removal skills enable us to conduct this work thoroughly and restore your home to a state of utmost soundness.

Weatherproofing is the Final Step

The drier you keep the wood surfaces and structures in your home, the less likely you are to have dry rot in the future. After removing the wood rot and repairing your home, we protect your home from moisture permeation through properly flashing windows and doors, thoroughly sealing and protecting the outside wood surface, and preventative roofing. We check your basement for leaks, inspect your pipes, ensure sealants are up-to-date, and ensure windows are functioning properly. In short, we update your home with the latest weatherproofing technologies to ensure it has the utmost protection for years to come. Contact us today for an initial consultation!
