If you have any openings in your home’s water barrier, moisture can enter your home and cause severe damage to the structure of your home. When moisture invades your home, it can cause dry rot, brown rot, or wood rot to form. Dry rot causing moisture most often enters your home through construction defects, failed siding, window or door leaks, or failed exterior paint. If dry rot is present in your Newport beach house, it moves fast, considerably damaging large portions of your home’s structural components.

What Is Dry Rot?

Dry rot is a fungus that feeds off wood structures. Dry rot can cause affected material to become brittle and weak. If the construction materials of your Newport home has been exposed to the fast-acting dry rot fungi, the dry rot can spread quickly with minimal moisture present. Making observing dry rot early very difficult before the wood decay starts to spread.

Where Can Dry Rot Be Found?

Dry rot often starts where moisture is likely to be present, but can spread to affect posts, beams, deck framing, kitchen and bathroom floors and walls, deck boards, eaves, roofs, near damaged gutters, sill plates, foundations, window and door framing, siding, cripple walls and crawl spaces, among others. Dry rot can enter your home through your home’s interior and exterior and infest any wood structure. Seeing the early signs of wood decay is not always easy; here are some of the common signs and symptoms to look out for.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around Your Garage

Dry Rot Repairs|


The garage feels like a distinctly American component of the modern home. It’s a place you can park your car, store your extra stuff, do the laundry, or even convert into a shop or casual hang-out space. However you use it, the garage is also the unique part of your home that marks the transition between the outside world and the inner sanctity of your dwelling, which makes it especially susceptible to garage rot – areas where wood surfaces and structures are rotting.

Exterior Targeted Home 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.
