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. ”

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

Professional Dry Rot Repair

Having dry rot in your home is like having a serious cavity in your tooth—the decay must be removed so that you can eat properly and without pain or danger of losing your tooth. In the same way, your home may become unsafe when affected by serious dry rot. You need a professional Burien dry rot repair company to remove the dry rot wood fungus so that it can no longer take hold in your home.

SFW Construction has provided expert Burien dry rot removal and repair services for over a decade. As a general contractor, we are thoroughly experienced and equipped to remove your dry rot and conduct home restoration repairs, including structural carpentry, siding repair and roofing work. Because it is a progressive problem, it’s better to address dry rot sooner than later. In later stages, dry rot completely dilapidates the wood in your home, presenting the need for substantial repairs and restoration work. If caught in earlier stages, dry rot is more easily eradicated from your home and repairs are less intensive.

An Inside Look At The Problem Of Dry Rot

As a homeowner who has done all you can to preserve the integrity of your home, you may be wondering just how dry rot happens. For starters, the name ‘dry rot’ is misleading. The wood fungus that causes dry rot is spawned in wet or moist wood. After years of doing its work—having invaded, ‘digested’, and decayed once healthy wood—what remains is dilapidated wood that cracks, crumbles and falls apart when under pressure. The state of dry rot is the final condition.

This sounds terrible, we know! As a homeowner, you want to preserve your Burien home and maintain its sanctity—and wood rot is a condition that threatens your home. Wood that has been decayed by dry rot is mostly unusable, it no longer is durable or firm. Such wood cannot perform its intended function in your home and must be removed so that the wood structures and surfaces in your home can be repaired and restored to good health and functionality.

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 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.
