Dry Rot Removal And Structural Restoration Service
It is ironic that a condition is known as ‘dry rot’ is caused by excessive moisture penetrating the structure of your home. Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that eats away at healthy wood and destroys its coherence so that the wood deteriorates, breaks apart and crumbles. Because of this, dry rot is a significant threat to the structural integrity of your home and is best addressed sooner rather than later. Wood rot is a progressive condition that eats away at healthy wood in your Forest Grove home and continues until it is eradicated.
As a full-service home contractor, SFW Construction is well-positioned to remove your Forest Grove dry rot entirely and restore your home to sound structural condition. We also provide professional siding repair and comprehensive construction services if the dry rot in your home is excessive and necessitates larger-scale repair work.
How Do I Know If My Home Has Dry Rot?
There are a few predominant signs of dry rot that homeowners often notice. Any significant changes in the appearance, odor or functionality of wood surfaces or structures in your home are good indications that there may be a problem. For instance, when your floor has an area that ‘give’ or squeaks when walked upon it may be due to dry rot in the wood beneath the floor. Discolored wood or wood that is too soft or pliable may indicate dry rot as well.
Because wood rot feeds on moist wood, it often occurs in kitchens and bathrooms, under sinks, on countertops or even in walls of your Forest Grove home. Dry rot can also invade the exterior of your home, in the frames around windows and doors, under shingles, and around gutters.
