We Deliver Quality Craftsmanship And Our Clients Stand Behind The Work We Do
SFW Construction repaired dry rot and replaced railings on our deck. We are thrilled with their work! The crew was on time every morning, very clear and respectful in communicating updates, and maintained/cleaned up the worksite really well. The deck support and railings look terrific! We would certainly use them again.
Seasoned professionals. They worked with me to find the right solution for my needs and budget. They genuinely care about the quality of work they perform and the customer experience. SFW is the best in the business when it comes to projects that require specialized skills, materials, and approvals. You will not be disappointed.
We hired SFW to replace a damaged back-door – which turned into building out a whole new back wall due to the discovery of water damage and poor craftsmanship from the original builders. Everyone was professional, communicative, educational, and worked hard to help us save money throughout the process. I was also very impressed with how clean the left the job site at the end of every work day. Looking forward to having them come out next summer to rebuild our rotting front porch.
Highly recommend! Very helpful and responsive. Our project was a leak that had to be fixed on all three floors of our home. It included replacing siding, sealing three sets of doors, replacing hardwood flooring, and ceiling repair. There were some unexpected findings like any construction project where water damage occurs. However, I had a great experience communicating with the team to finish the project on time. The house looks great! Thank you to this team for taking great care of us!
I wasn’t sure what to expect as this was my first experience with exterior dry rot. The team arrived and walked me through their steps and process. They checked in to keep me updated on their progress and what they found at each step. The team did a great job and cleaned up the site when they were done. I was very happy with their work and transparency along the way.
SFW exceeded all expectations from start to finish. Their administration team, formans, and on-site teams communicated timely and transparently. We never expected to be so happy with a construction company. Recommending SFW to all our friends! Beyond thrilled with the communication, quality work, and overall experience. Financing was a plus! As all premium companies don’t provide this.
They were great!. The communication was excellent, and they delivered everything they said they would. The supervisor did a great job of checking in every day to make sure the plan was going how we wanted. Everything either met or exceeded our expectations. The whole experience was positive. We’re really pleased.
I would gladly recommend SFW Construction to anyone. The workers were clean and neat as well as the worksite. The wood used to replace the damaged area are of top quality. I can not say enough about the workmanship. It looks better than it did before their work. They did an excellent job. I would recommend them to anyone.
I have had nothing but exceptional service from SFW, whether via phone with the office staff or in-person meeting for exterior house paint. Or with the supervisor and his carpentry crew for repairs on the garage. They are professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend them.
SFW’s construction and paint professionals had all the answers from the initial response to our RFP through the conclusion of current-phase work. When the scope of construction had to expand, they worked with me to develop an effective revised project plan. More importantly, the work itself has been consistently outstanding.
“SFW Construction was great to work with! They listened carefully to my concerns and goals for the project and anticipated the things that I would want to add to the project. When I reinforce the rest of the deck or do any other renovations, I will call these guys first.”— Tony Narducci • Lake Oswego, Oregon
“The person in charge of the work did a fantastic job from start to finish – from listening to my concerns and reviewing the work needed to get it done, quickly and professionally. The whole process, from start to finish, was great. I liked the transparency about scheduling, and the work done was perfect.” — Ron Monteiro • Portland, Oregon
“The crew was knowledgeable, professional, and organized. SFW Construction completed significant structural repairs on my house. This included jacking up the structure to replace weight-bearing timbers. I feel confident in the work and that my house will not keep rotting.”— Rachel Ross • Vancouver, Washington
“They did a fantastic job, kept in contact as far as the days and times they would be here. You don’t get that from most companies. The guys they sent out knew their stuff and did a really good job. Everything was great and they are one of the best companies I ever worked with. We recommended them to our family and friends.” — Barbara Ventura • Vancouver, Washington
“I called SFW Painting to estimate a new paint job for my house. We already tested it for lead paint and knew all was ok. During the inspection, the estimator spotted some dry rot on the trim around my windows. He wouldn’t paint over it and said I need to get it fixed before we paint. Fortunately, SFW Painting’s parent company, SFW Construction, is the best in the business for dry rot. Unfortunately, the estimate is more than I budgeted for, so the project is a bit delayed. I’m considering their in-house financing to keep the project on its original timeline. I recommend SFW Painting, they are very knowledgeable and a “one-stop-shop” for home repairs.” — Steve Colby • Lake Oswego, Oregon
“Both contractors were excellent. They repaired some eaves/soffits that were water damaged from the prior owner’s neglect. There was additional water damage in the walls and under the roof sheathing, and they were great about talking me through the process and giving me advice on my options. I’m a brand new, first-time homeowner, so this is all unfamiliar to me, but SFW made me feel assured that the job would be done properly. The job was expensive, but ultimately I feel I got the appropriate amount of quality work for what I paid. I would definitely recommend for projects you really want done right.” — Derrick McIntosh • Salem, Oregon
“SFW completed a lead paint removal project. The paint estimator was on time to my house. He measured everything he needed and talked me through the process. When the crew arrived, they were punctual, personable, and great from the start. When I went out to talk to them about the project and see how they were doing, they gave me their plan for the day and upcoming days on what exactly was going to get done, the proper precautions that were going to be taken, and all the safety requirements, with it being lead removal. I came home after work, they were still working, but they made sure to show me and talk me through everything they had done so far. Nothing but positivity, great conversations, and beautiful work done. The areas that were said to get done were, and everything was clean and taken care of. I only could get half my house done because of money, but it was the original amount that the estimator told me, and the estimate was spot on. That gave me peace of mind as lead removal is not cheap. I look forward to working with SFW in the future when I get the rest of my house done. They are the best around, thanks so much!” — Andrew Giron • Seattle, Washington
“SFW Construction did a great job replacing our driveway, a 33-year-old wooden bridge over a creek that is our only access from the street. The project evolved from the original plan to repair the bridge to a full replacement after discovering that the entire structure was compromised by rot. SFW deconstructed the old bridge with care – our water, sewer, and gas lines run through it – and put a lot of thought and care into putting the new bridge together, making several design improvements along the way. The final product is beautiful and built for ages. This was the first time we’ve had a contractor work for us on a time and materials basis, and while a fixed price contract encourages speed, a time and materials contract, at least this one, puts more emphasis on working with thought and care. Our work crew worked well together, impressed us with their work ethic and nice manners, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. The project manager, Jerry, kept us informed and gave us lots of good advice – not to mention peace of mind – along the way. We’d hire these guys again in a heartbeat.”— Gregory Snook • Tualatin, Oregon
“We wanted SFW to repair the siding on our garage, which turned into rebuilding our garage. They let us know the scope of work and explained everything clearly. I would use them again for any future projects as I was thrilled with the work.”— Annie Cooper • Portland, Oregon
“I was extremely impressed with SFW Construction. They replaced the siding on the south side of my house. The team was prompt, professional, informative, and the siding looks amazing. I highly recommend them. Thank you for all your work SFW!” — Celita Holt • Portland, Oregon
“Finding out that a water intrusion problem is bigger and more destructive than you thought is scary and un-fun. Trust me, if you think you have a similar problem or have any concerns of water intrusion or damage call these guys. I was grateful for the SFW Construction team— taking this problem on and addressing it so expertly. They are a professional, personable, communicative, hardworking team of aces, and I would confidently recommend them to anyone facing a similar problem. Both crew members on the team were exceptional. Both were great at talking me through what was happening, their approach to solving the problems, how long it’d take, etc. I missed having them at my house when the project was over! I really appreciated that they were open to ways I could help mitigate costs, even if it was just in small ways. For example, I took on some site cleanup between workdays and dump runs to help keep hourly costs down, and the team focused on what it does best. I also really appreciated the clear communication and walking me through what was happening. Both Aaron and Brian were professional, experts at their craft, ultra-knowledgable, and personable. Thank you again, guys, I’m confident in the work, materials, and solution that SFW provided.” — Devin L • Seattle, Washington
“The project manager, supervisor, and crew are great. Everything was explained, photos of work sent throughout the day, and quality craftsmanship in every aspect of my new deck. All debris and supplies were removed. The crew even raked and smoothed the gravel surrounding the new deck. Each evening the site was cleaned up and left for safe walking around the deck. The crew installed all the materials I requested. They are excellent craftsmen. Dry Rot was found and repaired for a long-lasting result. Communication was forthcoming with all information through phone calls, texts and emails. I think the project ended a day or two early, which was great! I cannot think of something lacking in the project. The new deck is beautiful and well built. All of my expectations are exceeded. The supervisor sent texts with photos and comments each day. They worked every day, even on a few rainy days. One day supplies did not arrive on time, so they texted and moved on to work on a different job to not lose a day. I appreciated that they were sensitive to not charging me for time not well spent. Everyone I needed to communicate with was professional and cordial. This is my 2nd project working with SFW. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a contractor.”— Judy Alleruzzo • Sherwood, Oregon
“It is not easy to find a company to do a concentrated fix of a roof and gutter problem. Once the workers showed up and demoed, the problem was quickly remedied. The supervisor was very good at communicating and explaining options. I should have contacted them long ago to fix my gable as I am very happy with the work they performed! Professional and communicative!”— Jeanine B. • Seattle, Washington
“We noticed a small dry rot area going into the sheathing, so; we knew we needed professional help. My friend used SFW and highly recommended them. The job was bigger than we thought, but SFW walked us thru every step, explaining what was needed and why. Their work was exemplary; the crew was friendly and respectful. They are clearly experts in their trade.” — John B. • Beaverton, Oregon
“Excellent. Everyone at SFW Construction was very attentive, and the work looks great. It’s a great defense against any type of water damage that would have eventually leaked behind the joints. We would definitely go to them again for any other siding work.” — Wes I. • Portland, Oregon
“Crew showed up on time, explained their approach, and got right to work. They worked quickly and efficiently as a team, removing bad siding, repairing areas that had rot, and replacing them with new siding. The siding was done expertly and we are extremely satisfied with our selection of SFW to do this work.” — Kevin R. • Beaverton, Oregon
“Excellent experience. SFW crew was very professional. They explained the water damage they found and how it would be repaired. No halfway measures or just cosmetics, they did it right! Very pleased with the clean-up and end result. We will definitely hire them for other home maintenance projects. Thank you SFW Construction.” — Kate M. • Beaverton, Oregon
“SFW repaired the damage to the soffits, rafter tails, and some siding. We were impressed by the quality and how thorough they were in making repairs. They arrived every day, on time, informed us about what they were doing, kept us informed, answered our questions, and kept the worksite clean. The house looks like new.” — George L. • Vancouver, Washington
“SFW Construction was quick to find the causes of our water damage. We were able to correct the problem to prevent future damage. The work they did was great, and the rot they identified certainly met my expectations.” — Fred Russell • Tacoma, Washington
“The supervisor was respectful and communicative about our options during the process. Professionalism and timeliness were great. I know this can be a huge issue with other contractors, so having someone prompt and helpful was appreciated.” — Kelly Morrissey • Seattle, Washington
“SFW does quality work and uses quality materials. They do everything that needs to be done and nothing superfluous. These are the reasons why I’ve hired SFW twice, why I left a rave review for SFW on Angie’s List three years ago, why I’ll leave a rave review for the recent work, and why I recommend SFW to my neighbors and friends.”— Philip Morris • Wilsonville, Oregon
“The team was very professional and flexible. They went above and beyond to ensure that I understood what was being done and that I was satisfied with the output of their work. They answered all of my questions honestly. They sincerely cared about my home and family.” — Holland Herbert • Astoria, Oregon
“The crew was amazing! Excellent craftsmanship, attention to detail, and overall professionalism. The supervisor made a stressful situation so much easier with his direct information about the process and options moving forward. A+ group, all were superb. The supervisor had a real ability with customers and knowledge of his trade. Every day was wrapped up clean and tidy with a clear view of what was coming up. No areas for improvement, this was a big, stressful project for us, and I can’t imagine being happier with the finished product and experience. I’m a firm believer in things being done the right way, not the rushed way. Definitely met and exceeded that expectation. Thank you – if choosing again, you’d be the first on the list!”— Jaime Baxter • Portland, Oregon
We hired SFW Construction to replace siding on one end of our house. We are 100% satisfied with the quality of work and the professionalism of both on-site carpenters and office staff. We will absolutely hire them again for any future work needed. At the end of each day, special attention was given to cleaning up the site and safely “tucking everything in.” The on-site supervisor was not happy with some of the siding materials delivered and made a special effort to secure A+ siding for our job. The crew members are absolutely top-notch skilled carpenters. They put precise touches to the siding around difficult permanent fixtures like a furnace exhaust fan grate and a large electrical box.”— Linda Imlah • Beaverton, Oregon
“I would use three words to describe SFW Construction LLC: Professional, Meticulous, and Trustworthy.
Professional: From day one, starting with the estimator, it was clear professionalism is a top priority of SFW. SFW is a top-notch company with systems to smoothly run a project from start to finish, including contract negotiations to payment requests. Our project’s massive scope of work took a total of ~6.5 weeks and required seven crew members on site. Every day, each crew member showed up on time (seriously, not a minute late), communicated effectively and consistently with us, the owners, and kept the workspace clean upon completing the day’s tasks. My husband and I have worked on multiple house remodels and with countless contractors. In our experience, SFW, by far, exudes the highest level of professionalism.
Meticulous: If you are looking for a contractor to complete a residential exterior home repair project correctly, SFW is the contractor for you. My husband and I purchased a 1930’s house in West Seattle covered in vinyl siding. Keeping true to the age of the house, we opted to roll the dice, remove the vinyl (in hopes the original siding was salvageable), and restore the cedar hidden beneath the 1970’s plastic. After countless bids, recommendations, and Google searches, we concluded only one company in the area could accomplish our goal: SFW. Seeing as our house was a mystery (wrapped in vinyl), a full scope of work could not be predicted until the original siding was uncovered. Once the cedar siding was out in the open, the lead paint renovation was completed without a hitch (thank you, crew!). However, the carpentry scope of work was far more drastic than we had hoped. Due to water damage and rot, the south side of the house needed to be rebuilt, the belly band and drip cap throughout the perimeter of the body had to be flashed and replaced, and lastly, all-new corner trim boards needed to be installed. This new scope of work was far more complicated than the simple “repair a few rotten pieces of siding” scope we held our breath on. The drastic escalating scope didn’t phase SFW; the crew rolled with the punches with ease. The carpentry manager on site was incredibly knowledgeable and meticulously planned and reviewed each repair. Clearly, this was not his first rodeo. The crew members on-site carefully completed each task to ensure our house would be structurally sound and waterproofed for years to come. I typically don’t use the word “thoughtful” when describing a construction project; however, our experience with SFW warrants an exception. All work completed on our job site was not only meticulously executed but was incredibly thoughtful. Our house now feels like a home.
Trustworthy: No project, especially one of this magnitude, goes from start to finish without a few bumps in the road. Along the way, we had a few administrative (minor billing errors) and scope of work (misunderstanding of viable vs. nonviable siding) obstacles to overcome. Once brought to the attention of SFW, these errors were immediately rectified. My focus is not necessarily on the mistake made but on how a company solves the issue. SFW stood true to their word of being trustworthy and did a stellar job ensuring we, the clients, were treated fairly. While most of our experience was positive, all errors that occurred were immediately rectified. With all that being said, overall, my husband and I would happily work with SFW again! …however, we vow never to buy another mystery house wrapped in vinyl.” — Emily A • Seattle, Washington
“Working with SFW was a great experience. I needed major repairs done on the moisture barrier to my house. and every step of the way, SFW was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and did great work. The project supervisor was clear and readily communicated everything that they were doing. This communication included the damage they found, what the fix would be, the materials they were using, and the techniques, among other things. At every step of the process, I knew exactly what I was paying for and had a lot of confidence that my house would be better afterward. The whole crew was also extremely courteous of my property, knowledgeable, and did great work, all while standing on pump jacks during some very windy spring Seattle days. I hope that I won’t have to use SFW in the future, but if I do need to repair my roof, windows, siding, etc., I will definitely hire them again.” — Nick Foti • Seattle, Washington
“It was raining every day, I had a roof leak, so the work was urgent. Immediately a crew put a stopgap in place before the repair. Communication was excellent. The work and costs were explained to me. I will use them again, and I recommend them.”— Homero Trevino • Portland, Oregon
“I called SFW Construction for a job that required repairing siding, which had been compromised by woodpeckers. They came out, replaced the siding, matched the paint, and finished the job within a day. Highly recommend, great service and reviews!”— Kyle Wantuck • Renton, Washington
“Very happy to have found a contractor willing to fix a gable, siding, gutter, and rot issue. It was a 2-day job, and so happy it was done safely (a bit high roofline) and the problem was solved. Very happy with service and good communication.” — Drew Beckley • Renton, Washington
“SFW Construction repaired water damage, identified and replaced defects in my house that I had missed which would have caused further water damage. They were conscientious and efficient. The results look great.”— Rachel Ross • Vancouver, Washington
“Great job repairing an issue with compromised siding and roof drainage. The crew did a great job and prepared the area for our house painting. This is a very responsible and professional company. I would recommend them and use them again. Thank you, SFW Construction”— James Benson • Portland, Oregon
“They were easy to work with. The job was not easy. They had to replace three stories of an exterior wall on the entire back of the house. The prices were reasonable. Workers were friendly. The job was clean and done well. 1000 years in the future, the wall they built will be the last thing standing from this house.”— Matt Harrington • Vancouver, Washington
“SFW Construction repaired some siding for me. They showed up on time every single day. I’m happy with the quality of the work. I think they used the quality of building standards. I’m happy with that.”— Mike McMahon • Tigard, Oregon
“I cannot say enough about SFW Construction’s professionalism. Formal communication throughout the process from scheduling, walking me through the scope of work, expected cost, and including options for repair. It was always very clear what would be done and why. Truly the best experience I have had with construction/repair in years. Appreciated the project manager and the scheduling office. I would use SFW again at any time.”— Dawn Vance • Bend, Oregon
“Picked SFW for dry rot repair and exterior painting over 5 contractors. The supervisor shared his expertise, and his crew did an outstanding job with washing, repair, and paint, making our 35-year-old home look brand new. Highly recommend!”— Glen Morrison • Salem, Oregon
“We hired SFW Construction to replace some siding and a couple of doors before any exterior painting project. It’s the biggest home repair project we’ve undertaken to date, but we felt like we were in good hands every step of the way. Communication was excellent with employees both onsite and in the office, and the quality of the work is top-notch. We couldn’t be more pleased with how everything has come out. The crew leader was great and did an excellent job of managing his team, and kept us informed of what was happening every step of the way.” — Jay Castaldi • Portland, Oregon
“SFW Construction was a great company to work with! We like our new siding very much and are pleased with the outcome. The crew showed up on time every day, kept the work area clean, and did a great job! SFW also helped us obtain financing for our project at a great rate. We will definitely use SFW Construction again for any of our future projects!” — Debbie Johnson • Vancouver, Washington
“I would use them again they treated me well not like other places where they try to take advantage of you. They answered all my questions, and they were patient. They exceeded my expectations, and I would use them again and recommend them.” — Michelle Kozina • Woodburn, Oregon
“Overall, SFW did an amazing job, and I recommend them to others. SFW uses top-of-the-line materials, and the quality is great. They also left the job site as though they were never there. Overall very pleased!”— Rachelle Siguourney • Puyallup, Washington
“SFW was quick with scheduling and completing the job. The quality of the work was good. The supervisor did a great job explaining everything, telling the crew what to do, and checked in regularly to ensure everything was going smoothly. Thank you SFW Construction!” — Douglas McDonald • Portland, OR
“SFW repaired dry rot damage into two of our exterior walls, including behind a brick wall, and rebuilt everything after the wood was replaced. After they finished, the house looked exactly as it did before, except with brand new siding and wood structure inside the wall. We are super happy with the results and the quality of the work. They used Tyvek and Hardie Boards and other good brand materials. I was impressed that the work crew was there every day on time; great job!” — Antoine Atallah • Renton, WA
“SFW was excellent in every respect. The workmanship was great; the crews were professional and tidy, the closure of punch list items was immediate, and the price was very reasonable. This was a demanding project, with lots of surface changes and four levels; very impressive in two weeks. If you want high-quality work with attention to detail, SFW is the way to go.” — Chris Kitterman • Portland, OR
“SFW Construction is a company built on integrity and quality with consistently meeting the needs of its clients. The carpentry class is top class, and their attention to detail meant a lot to me as a client.” — Russell Hoeflich • Portland, OR
“They repaired bad wood and painted so that new gutters could be installed. I did not get a second bid because we used the company before and felt confident they would do a good job. I would recommend SFW and would use them again.” — Linda Heidenreich • Tualatin, OR
“SFW replaced a skylight that was leaking had to replace some of the plywood that had water damage. They made sure I understood what they were doing and why friendly people good job would hire again” — Greg Correia • Salem, OR
“Great company. I recommend SFW Construction. I found dry rot on the front of our home. SFW showed up with a team very quickly and came back on time every day until the job was complete. If your job needs to be done right – give SFW a call.” — Chris Campbell • Salem, OR
“I reached out to SFW upon learning that the exterior of my home had lead paint. SFW came highly recommended from google reviews and other platforms. The estimator was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions about lead paint and the process of moving forward. He came out the following day and did a full assessment of the exterior and even pointed out some dry rot areas around the fence and garage that I overlooked. SFW was able to replace all of the rotted boards, safely remove all of the lead paint, and paint the house on time. The project turned out amazing! Two companies turned down the job due to lead paint before calling SFW; I’m glad they did; I couldn’t be happier. If you’re looking for a lead paint contractor, call these guys, I will be referring SFW to family and friends with trust. They treat clients, right!” — Larry Y • Seattle, WA
“Our supervisor had exceptional service. He talked me through everything, gave me options, and was very communicative. I was impressed with how he kept me in the loop, especially while working under challenging conditions, the wildfires.” — Dan Hallberg • Oregon City, OR
“I am very likely to recommend SFW Construction because of the attitude of doing great work at a fair price. The staffers who worked on our construction repairs in advance of our painting project were the first-rate.” — Marvin Fjordbeck • Portland, OR
“I had an incredible experience with SFW Construction. I recently sold my home in Beaverton, and I had SFW repair some water damage. The damage was worse than it first appeared, and given the nature of water intrusion and not knowing how extensive it was, it can be a scary experience. But the site supervisor for my job was amazing. He kept me informed constantly, explained what was going on, what they would do next, and why, etc. It really made the experience much less intimidating. On top of that, they are a one-stop-shop for whatever work is needed. In my case, there was deck work, siding work, concrete pouring, drywall, door jamb replacement, etc. They did it all, and with exceptional craft and speed. I was very impressed all around, and I will never use anyone else but SFW for any future needs.”— Kyle Deatherage • Beaverton, OR
“We have used SFW Construction for two projects and a third starting this week. The company has a unique process that is quite efficient, and the crew members are very knowledgeable and professional. The first job included removing five huge windows and fixing dry rot in the wall. The second job included repair to a back deck where it joined the house, which required the deck’s support to get to the dry rot on the side of the house and remove the entire French doors to flash the floor with roofing material correctly. The crew went above and beyond. They were professional, courteous, and fun to get to know during the process! We have been very pleased with the outcome of both projects and feel comforted knowing that we can hire them for repairs and not worry about the outcome.” — Michael Roberts • Portland, OR

“I appreciated being informed through the project as to what was happening, what they found, and explaining what needed to be done, leaving me to make informed decisions. Excellent homeowner service, great reviews and superb quality ensuring lasting results.” — Lucie Shores • Portland, OR
“Working with SFW was excellent for the roof work we needed! Even though it was a small repair, they were prompt, completed the whole project, including painting the new boards all in one day! Great work!”— Staci Ball • Tualatin, OR
“Amazing job repairing dry rot, entailing tear-out, rebuilding, insulating, and painting. They’re precise with carpentry, clean up every day, and pleasant to deal with. The resulting work is much nicer than the existing house. I know I’ll use this company again.”— Rhonda Hancock • Seaside, OR
“We found water damage on an exterior wall of our home. SFW carpenters surgically addressed the issue in an efficient yet thorough manner. I was very impressed with their team and will use them again in the future should the need arise. Our lead carpenter was awesome to work with, comprehensive, excellent communication, and he really knew his stuff when it came to this type of work. Gold stars all around; I’m delighted with the work, schedule, billing structure, and communication. Thank you!” — Mike Murray • Lake Oswego, OR
“SFW has done a couple of dry rot repairs for my home now, and each time they have been professional and responsive to all my questions and concerns. Having projects scheduled has been surprisingly quick, and each supervisor has been knowledgeable on the requirements for the repair and communicative on the scope of work. Having these repairs done has been a major stress relief, and I am confident the repairs were done well.”— Joe Hofsheier • Vancouver, WA.
“SFW exceeded our expectations with the quality of staff and people working on-site. They were personable and friendly. They recommended job opportunities they saw, including ones they could complete beyond the scope of the job, giving me options.”— Patrick Preston • Hillsboro, OR
“I was very pleased with the quality of their work and by how quickly and efficiently my job was completed. Even my neighbors commented on the job and asked for the company information for any future projects they may have.”— Gina Johnston • Portland, OR
“SFW Construction completed major rot and water damage repairs at my house recently. Everyone I interacted with at SFW was very professional. The project foreman was great. He regularly updated me on the project status, answered all my questions, and had high-quality repair work. I would re-hire for future projects.” — Michael Rhodehamel • Troutdale, OR
“SFW fixed a leaky and rotten window trim in my house that turned into replacing siding, trim, and re-setting windows. I was impressed by the knowledge, dedication, and quality craftsmanship. The crew did fantastic work and kept me updated on the progress throughout the repair. They have great reviews and you are getting your $$ worth when hiring SFW.” — Mark Lindeman • Bellevue, WA.
“I hired SFW for a small project. They were very professional throughout the process. Scheduling was easy and quick, and the work was completed on time for a reasonable price. I would recommend SFW and would not hesitate to use them again.”— Jared Powell • Tigard, OR
“I am thrilled with the professionalism and quality of work performed. It definitely feels higher quality than it was before SFW got here. Once work got started, the time to complete the work was pretty close to what my project supervisor predicted each step of the way. My project supervisor did a standup job. He took pride in his craft and general homeowner service on-site.”— Steven Fuqua
“On the first day, SFW got right to work on our soffit project. We talked about a couple of options and how they can paint the new soffit. I was surprised at what a significant impact fixing the street side soffit did for our curb appeal. It did not seem like a big deal, but it is so visible, and the crew did a great job. The project foreman did a great job communicating with us and completing our project on time, all while staying slightly under budget. One of the reasons I hired SFW–I did not get any other bids–was because you called me back. I have found a lot of contractors do not reply to leads from their web site. Often, they do not respond to calls. I just wanted the job done, and I took a leap of faith hiring SFW. I think I got excellent work at a fair price, and that is worth a lot more to me than the savings I might have found by working the phones and waiting to line up other bids. I would recommend SFW without reservation–I really appreciated the team’s professionalism and competency. I also want to give a hat tip for your responsiveness. SFW contacted me back right away. The entire project took three days and the whole interaction about two weeks–that felt really prompt for a construction project.”—Matt Trineer • West Linn, OR
“Although I was apprehensive about not receiving a fixed cost bid to repair my dry rot issue upfront, I read some of their reviews and concluded their time and materials approach made sense. If they are transparent about their rate per hour and cost of materials, surely this is more sensible for a homeowner and could end up costing less than a fixed cost bid with built-in contingencies. Well, my decision paid off, and my issue was repaired professionally and efficiently. The daily billing and multiple payment options made a big difference too. I highly recommend SFW.”— Jonathan Byers • West Linn, OR
“This company was comprehensive and professional. They communicated very well and did a great job for me. I highly recommend them.”—Karvan Bjelland • Vancouver, WA.
“I have had SFW Construction out twice for two different projects and found everyone professional and informative. I was consistently made aware of the issues that were the result of construction defects. At no time was anytime wasted with the siding and roofing repairs. They were prompt and efficient. The estimates for the repairs were reasonable and at no time were we pressured to sign into a contract. Discussions were held, and options were mulled before the contracts were signed. My wife and I expect to continue our relationship with SFW Construction for future work.” —Frank R. • Sandy, OR
“I am currently closing on a home and will be taking ownership tomorrow. Unfortunately, the siding has issues and some dry rot around the windows. I contacted SFW Construction to find out more about the issue and a possible siding and dry rot repair. I was apprehensive about what I would hear, but the SFW staff helped answer all my questions! SFW made me feel more informed about my project! I’m still in the process of deciding to fix the issues or re-side the entire home, but I know for sure I will be calling SFW Construction either way!” —Mirabella H • Portland, OR
“What a great company. Every interaction I have had has been wonderful. I highly recommend for siding and dry rot.” —Hallie Perez • Portland, OR
“The guys arrived at the time they said they would and were prepared for the repair. The job was done right in a very timely manner.” —Barry Hendrickson • Portland, OR
“Repaired structural damage to a standalone carport. Work was done in a day, in and out. The construction foreman checked with me before doing any materials buys or rentals and kept me in the loop. I have used them before and will again.” —Robert Houghton • Beaverton, OR
“Wonderful service—they completed the project ahead of plan, which was a delightful surprise. The team was professional, provided all of their own materials, and communicated the details clearly. I would highly recommend SFW to anyone.” —Matt Coin • Seattle, WA.
“Was impressed with the crew and the service. I arrived on time, ready to work. I did the work in less time than expected, so it saved me some real money. Work was well done, and the process painless…would hire them again without question.”—Leah Warren • Seattle, WA.
“Your guys were a class act and went above and beyond to help me with a job. I had questions afterward, and the office staff was on it immediately, making sure all of my concerns were addressed and handled. I will totally use SFW Construction again.” —Jenifer Harris • Tualatin, OR
“I must take a moment to commend the employees of SFW. From initial contact to the final day, every person was courteous, articulate, knowledgeable, and patient. I particularly would like to recognize Angel, who directed the crew at our project site. He was punctual, gave me daily progress reports, alerted me to any potential issues along the way, and wrapped up his part of the project, leaving an impeccably clean site. He is a tremendous asset to the company, and I greatly appreciated his direct yet kind manner. In what is already a stressful situation, Angel has grace and diplomatic non-confrontational skills that serve the company well. With both construction and painting aspects of my project, SFW was prompt to schedule and began the process and worked diligently and conscientiously to complete work promptly.” —Troy Johnson • Salem, OR
“Our house has extreme dry rot down to the studs in an area that prior owner had more hidden to flip the home. SFW did a phenomenal job getting down to the furthest extent of the rot, replacing studs, siding, and remediating the roof and deck to prevent future problems. That isn’t to say it was a perfect road. This may be counterintuitive, but the disagreement is where SFW stood out. There was an element in the final phase of the job that I wasn’t happy with, and the front office was excellent about investigating my concern, correcting the issue, and making sure that the billing was fair. What proves worth is how a company deals with problems – is it collaborative, honest, arbitrary, and obfuscated? If you want a company of honest, transparent, high-quality tradesmen and women, SFW is well worth the cost.”—Aj Perkins • Portland, OR
“The quality of the work was excellent! The foreman Robert was efficient, communicative, and made sure the job site was cleaned up at the end of each day. There was a need to adjust the hours billed. Since SFW has specialists in each company’s position (from homeowner experience, job site workers, billing, accounting, etc.), it took a while before we got a resolution. Once that was done, the company was more than fair in the resolution of the issue. They are definitely a company that cares about the homeowner experience!”—Gaye Blyth • Beaverton, OR
“SFW Construction was great to work with on this project. We were replacing a deck, and they took care of a demolition, designing a new deck, and once construction was done, they did a great job working with us to find the best stain. We also had to do some house painting around the deck area, and they were also able to help us with this. Overall, a great experience and very professional crews.”—Gina Vaccaro • Beaverton, OR
“I highly recommend using SFW Construction to do any maintenance project you have. I had three different, difficult projects that were one after the other. In scheduling, Sandra was readily available, making getting an appointment easy. Nancy in Billing kept me updated every day, so I could keep an eye on the price and was prompt and clear with the invoice when the project was done. I had Christian come and check on quality control and satisfaction. Greg, Chuck, and Alex were friendly, extremely knowledgeable project managers who fixed my severe dry rot, siding, and window installations. Jord, the Painter, was very nice and, luckily for me, a perfectionist. He even color matched the color because we couldn’t find the old paint can. Overall, SFW Construction is an A+ business to work with.”—William Prendergast • Portland, OR
“I have an ancient double garage with barn doors and wanted the openings reconfigured for overhead doors. Since it is on the street, I needed to coordinate the reconstruction with the garage door installers to complete two projects simultaneously due to security concerns. SFW Construction could do this perfectly even though the old garage had dry rot issues and required much more improvement than I initially expected. After they completed the project, we went to review it together. The completed project looks beautiful, and the garage is now in much better condition than before. I couldn’t be more satisfied with both the work crew and the final result. After seeing the quality of their work, I prefer to spend more money rather than ending up with the amateur result I would have achieved on my own.” —Jack Minor • Portland, OR
“I cannot even begin to explain how great Steve and his crew are, taking time to cover plants, move things out of the way, cleanup, prepare, and focus on the quality of their work. Their attention to detail is impressive, not to mention the extra things they did, like filling up my Doberman’s water bowl or explaining how their tools work to my two young children. I encourage anyone to call or email me if you would like to know more about SFW Construction; I wasn’t thrilled about paying for a membership to Angie’s List but seeing their reviews and finding the right person to come into my home and perform work is important. I hope you find my long and wordy review helpful! A+ all the way, SFW is a rarity among contractors, and I cannot speak highly enough of the integrity and care that ALL of the employees at SFW Construction took to go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I got the best materials, best craftsmanship, and the best homeowner service possible.” —Levi Mansell • Gladstone, OR
“Great experience!!! Steve and his crew were professional, available, and completed the job timely. I love the outcome and confidently refer him to everyone else.” —Misty Cavener • Tigard, OR
“They paid careful attention to preparing the work site so it would affect as little of the rest of the house as possible. The workers were all extremely prompt and polite. The finished product has exceeded our expectations.” —Julie Bosket • Tualatin, OR
“The result was flawless. I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of work completed. I could not have asked for a better job! As a result, I recommended SFW to my boss. My boss used SFW Construction to paint her home, and she was equally pleased with SFW construction.” —Jeromy Goodpastor • Tigard, OR
“Steve was great to work with! He did an excellent job on my exterior painting project, showing up on time and putting in the extra effort needed to make my house look new again. He was a good communicator and reliable. Five-star review!” —Karen Nutial • Tigard, OR
“I would recommend them to anybody; I am now enjoying the high quality of their work, and my friends have complimented me and gave me great reviews on the quality of the paint job.” —Gerald Wood • Portland, OR
“I would recommend Steve Wade to everyone. He will not only perform beyond your expectation from start to finish, but he will be a reliable guide through what can be complicated repairs/remodels to your home. Here is what you can expect: 1) He will help you make a detailed plan, and if you are not sure about what you want, he will help by providing options 2) He will give you a detailed estimate that will include material and labor costs, and he will be 100% accurate 3) He will show up on time, work incredibly efficiently and complete your project on time 4) He will maintain a level of professionalism that will give you peace of mind 5) The finished product will meet/exceed your expectation. If you need more evidence, look at his reviews” —Linda Holmes • Eugene, OR
“I want to thank the team for their professionalism and craftsmanship. After reading SFW’s reviews, I chose them for my next home project. The crew that did my bathroom was courteous, considerate, and did a great job. They worked hard to find a solution that would meet my needs, both in quality and cost. They were honest and open about all of the issues and kept me informed of the work status. I had opportunities to discuss the plans and the results so that I felt part of the team. The tile looks amazing, and the paint and doors tie it all together. The team was knowledgeable and professional, and I would recommend them to my friends and family; 5-star review from me!!!! I will definitely use them again!” —Angelica Kniss • Portland, OR
