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

How Can You Tell If You Might Have Dry Rot In Your Hillsboro Home?

Because the fungus that causes dry rot eats away at the structural integrity of the wood in your Hillsboro home, you can typically tell if you have dry rot based on signs that indicate weakened or deteriorating wood. For instance, floors that have spots that ‘give’ or squeak when you walk on them may indicate that the wood beneath your floor is compromised. Any wood that appears darker than usual, discolored, seems to be softer or looser than normal or looks as if it is shrinking or cracking may be affected by dry rot. Musty mildew smell is another good sign, and if any wood surface in your home has a growth on it that looks like mushrooms, cobwebs, or cotton, you are likely dealing with an advanced stage of dry rot.

Tackling The Dry Rot Problem In Hillsboro Requires A Specialist

Although it’s called ‘dry rot,’ the dry rot fungus thrives on moisture in the wood. Living in the northwest, where being wet is a general rule of thumb, the fungus that causes dry rot has a virtual buffet of fine dining options throughout your beautiful home! If you suspect you might have dry rot, SFW Construction can provide you with a free on-the-phone consultation as well as an affordable in-home inspection. We’ve been tackling Hillsboro dry rot problems for years and know how to detect and remove dry rot, as well as repair your damaged wood structure so that it is restored to a healthy and fully functional condition.

SFW Construction is the perfect specialist to fix your Hillsboro dry rot problem.

Hiring a professional to eradicate the dry rot in your home is essential because if you don’t get all of the dry rot, right down to the microscopic spores that it comes from, the problem will likely resurface and continue to do damage to your Hillsboro home. Also, keep in mind that the longer you wait, the more pervasive and damaging the dry rot will become to your home.

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.
