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 Occurs In Your Home

Dry rot is the end condition, in varying stages, of the destruction enacted upon healthy wood by a wood fungus that thrives on sources of wet, damp, and healthy wood. In the earliest stages, dry rot begins as tiny reddish spores that spread across wood surfaces. As it advances, it eats into the wood and robs it of its durability and vigor. In the final stages, dry rot reduces once healthy wood to a state in which it is cracked, crumbling, and disintegrating. Because the wood fungus that causes dry rot feeds on wet wood, it can take hold in virtually any part of your home that has excessive moisture along with wooden structures or surfaces.

Eradicating Dry Rot From Your Home

Once it has invaded the wood in your Renton home, the spread of dry rot is difficult to stop. Professional help is typically required because all of the wood fungi must be extracted, right down to the microscopic spores. If not entirely removed, the wood fungus will continue to grow and spread. After the fungus is eradicated, the affected wood must be removed and repaired. Depending on the stage of dry rot in your home, this may require some structural restoration work.

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.
