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.

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
Why It Is So Critical To Address Dry Rot In Your Mercer Island Home
Dry rot is a problem that can lead to a state of decay and disrepair in the wood structures and surfaces of your Mercer Island home. Once that happens, your home may become unsafe to live in. Dry rot represents the end-state of the destructive activity inflicted upon healthy wood by the dry rot wood fungus. Wood infected by dry rot may shrink, develop cracks, and crumble or break away easily when bearing weight or pressure.
SFW Construction is a full-scale general contractor construction company that has successfully treated dry rot in Mercer Island homes for over a decade. While we provide professional dry rot removal and repair services, we are also fully equipped to address and repair associated structural problems caused by dry rot, such as dilapidated siding or any other wood structures or surfaces in your Mercer Island home impacted by wood rot.
