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

The Tricky Problem Of Dry Rot

Dry rot is, ironically, caused by a wood fungus that feeds on moist or damp wood. It inhabits the wood in your home through the proliferation of tiny reddish spores that spread out across healthy wood. As the fungus advances, it devours the properties of healthy wood that make it strong and durable. In later stages, dry rot represents a state of total decay in which previously healthy wood is dilapidated—as such, it cracks and crumbles easily and falls apart when pressure is applied to it.

Dry rot often occurs in out-of-view places, like inner walls and floorboards, crawl spaces and attics. So if you think your home may have dry rot it’s a good idea to schedule a professional in-home dry rot inspection. As trained Federal Way dry rot repair experts, SFW Construction can thoroughly examine and diagnose your home for dry rot, and is well-equipped to effectively address and remediate any dry rot problems.

Most Common Signs Of Dry Rot Include:

  • Wood that is discolored, cracking or appears to be shrinking.
  • An appearance like cobwebs, cotton, or mushrooms on wood.
  • An earthy, rotting or unusual musty odor around wood or in enclosed wooden spaces.
  • Flooring with concave areas that sink in when walked upon.
  • Any wood surface or structure that is no longer functioning properly.

Dry rot is a widespread problem for homeowners in the Pacific Northwest. Often dry rot is hard to notice or detect because it tends to occur in the hidden inner structures of your home: beneath floorboards, inside crawl spaces, and behind walls.

Exterior Targeted Home Repairs

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.
