We specialize in providing our customers with a cost-effective dry rot repair option by conducting targeted repairs to the damaged area resulting in a like-new look. The Oregon coast is one of the most humid areas in our state. Any open-source in your home’s weather barrier can let moisture into the structure of your home, causing dry rot, brown rot, or wood rot to form. Moisture intrusion is commonly caused by construction defects, failed exterior paint, failed siding, or window or door leaks. SFW Construction is a highly-skilled General Contractor in the Cannon Beach area who can assist you through your dry rot repair project.
What Is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is a fungus that consumes and destroys wood materials. The fungus can move fast and spread eating your home’s wood structure. If dry rot starts to form on your Cannon Beach home, is it essential to act quickly and prevent the decay from spreading, causing severe damage.
Where Can Dry Rot Be Found?
Dry rot infiltrates your home through any interior and exterior openings and affects any wood structure. Dry rot can be found anywhere throughout your home. Dry rot often starts forming where moisture is present, but can be found in posts, beams, kitchen and bathroom floors and walls, deck framing, deck boards, eaves, roofs, near damaged gutters, foundations, sill plates, window and door framing, siding, cripple walls and crawl spaces, among others. Spotting dry rot is not always obvious, but below are some signs to watch out for.
Signs That You May Have A Wood Rot Problem:
Wood beginning to shrink, darken, or crack.
You can easily penetrate wood surfaces with a screwdriver.
A musty odor is present. Dry rot needs a damp environment, and a musty smell is a potential indicator of dry rot forming.
Wood surfaces covered in something resembling the skin of a mushroom, or mold.
Floors, in your bathroom and kitchen, feel “springy” or creak when you walk on them.
What Should You Do If You Notice One, Or Many, Of These Conditions?
If any of the above signs or symptoms are present at your Cannon Beach home, you must contact a professional dry rot repair specialist to remove and repair the rotted area systematically. If the dry rot is not adequately remediated, the decay can spread quickly throughout your home, turning a small targeted repair into a costly project.
