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

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 Damages Your Shoreline Home

Dry rot is the end result of a wood fungus that feeds on damp or moist wood, robbing it of its strength and vigor, and reducing it to a state of decay in which it cracks, crumbles and falls apart. When this particular wood fungus invades the healthy wood in your Shoreline home and results in wood rot, it seriously compromises the capacity of the wood structures and surfaces in your home to function properly. In essence, it causes a state of dilapidation and disrepair in which your home may cease to be a safe and healthy place for you and your family.

What Can Be Done To Eradicate And Resolve Dry Rot

Dry rot is a progressive problem, caused by a wood fungus that feeds and spreads continuously throughout any sources of damp healthy wood it can find. Once the wood fungus has taken hold in the wood structure of your home, it must be eradicated completely to stop its activity. This requires removing all the fungus, right down to the microscopic pores which are its earliest state.

As a professional and extensively experienced Shoreline dry rot removal specialist, SFW Construction is able to remove the wood fungus completely, then focus on repairing the wood impacted by dry rot—which often entails a bit of structural restoration work. As a full scale general contractor and construction company, we provide all necessary carpentry and home renovation work—from general repairs to structural restoration, siding repair and roofing work. We do it all, which is a boon to customers as it saves you time, hassle, and money.

Wood Decay

Dry Rot Repairs|


Wood decay can be a big problem for both new and experienced homeowners but particularly plagues those of us who live in the often damp Pacific Northwest. Despite its colloquial name, dry rot is most often caused by communities of fungi growing in wood with high moisture saturation.
