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

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.

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.
