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

How Dry Rot Takes Hold And Corrodes Your Home

Dry rot is, ironically, a condition caused by a wood fungus that feeds on wet or damp wood, robbing it of its vigor and strength. Though dry rot is progressive and advances through a few stages, the end condition of dry rot is wood that is basically worthless—cracked, crumbling and breaking apart under pressure. Obviously, wood that has been reduced to dry rot is not fit to support your home structure or surfaces and must be repaired.

Professional Lake Forest Dry Rot Repair

Removing wood rot from your Lake Forest Park home and restoring wood surfaces and structures that have been invaded by dry rot is a complex procedure. The first step involves removing all the wood fungus that cause dry rot, which includes the microscopic spores from which it is born (otherwise it will only continue). Then the dry rot itself must be removed, along with all the wood infected with dry rot. This process can entail structural restoration if previously healthy wood structures have been compromised by the dry rot.

SFW Construction is a comprehensive general contractor, licensed and certified to provide the full gamut of home construction, carpentry and remodeling. You may not need a whole lot of structural renovation, but it’s good to know that you have an experienced and qualified professional at your disposal if you do. We are a recognized and reputable Lake Forest Park dry rot repair specialist, providing high quality and cost-effective dry rot removal to homeowners for over a decade.

Exterior Targeted Home Repairs

Dry Rot 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.

How Dangerous Is Dry Rot?

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.
