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

Industry Leading Dry Rot Repair

Once dry rot has taken hold in the wood structures or surfaces of your home it tends to consume the wood in an unbridled fashion. If left untreated, dry rot will gradually deteriorate whatever wood structure it has inhabited. So if you suspect you have dry rot it’s a good idea to consult a professional and have your home inspected. The sooner you address the problem the less damage the dry rot will inflict, and the easier and more cost-effective it will be for you to have fixed.

Signs & Symptoms Of Dry Rot

Any significant or unusual change in the condition of the wood structure or surfaces in your home may indicate dry rot, especially changes in appearance, functionality, and odor. At advanced stages, dry rot is easier to detect, but in earlier phases as well as when it is in out-of-view areas, it is harder to identify.

The following is a general list of dry rot signs and symptoms:

  • Wood surfaces or structures look as if they are shrinking or cracking.
  • The floor has soft spots that become concave or squeak when walked on.
  • Wood surfaces or structures are softer than normal or seem to be loose.
  • Floors or wood surfaces are darker than usual or discolored.
  • Cobweb, cotton, or mushroom-like growths appear on wood surfaces.
  • There is a musty, mildew odor around areas that have wood.

Windows are an essential component of the house you live in. As intermediaries between the outside and inside of your home, windows are especially vulnerable to large amounts of moisture. Any water damage around a window indicates that the frame is not functioning correctly or that water from the outside of the home is leaking inside—which will eventually cause the wood around your window frame to rot.
