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

Dry Rot Removal And Structural Restoration Service

It is ironic that a condition is known as ‘dry rot’ is caused by excessive moisture penetrating the structure of your home. Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that eats away at healthy wood and destroys its coherence so that the wood deteriorates, breaks apart, and crumbles. Because of this, dry rot is a significant threat to the structural integrity of your home and is best addressed soon than later. Dry rot is a progressive condition that eats away at healthy wood and continues until it is eradicated.

As a full-service home contractor, SFW Construction is well-positioned to remove your Tigard dry rot entirely and restore your home to sound structural condition. We also provide professional siding repair and comprehensive construction services if the dry rot in your home is excessive and necessitates larger-scale repair work.

How To Detect The Presence Of Dry Rot In Your Home

Because dry rot is caused by excessive moisture, you will most often find it in places that are most susceptible to becoming wet, either through an interface with the outside of the home or interior areas that are subject to moisture. Inside the Tigard house dry rot may be difficult to detect, here are some signs you may look for if you suspect its presence in your home:

  • Floors or wood surfaces have discoloration.
  • A damp and musty odor is a good indication of dry rot fungus.
  • Wood surfaces or structure are softer than normal or seem to be loose.
  • Any area of wood that appears dark or looks as if it is shrinking or is cracked.
  • A growth like cobwebs, cotton, or mushrooms appears on wood surfaces.
  • Your floor has areas that “give” or squeak when you walk on it.

If you notice any of these symptoms, you likely have dry rot in your Tigard home. Because dry rot is so pervasive and tricky to deal with, it is highly recommended to have a professional address it. If you don’t locate and remove all of the dry rot fungi it will continue to eat away at the structure of your home. SFW Construction provides Tigard dry rot extraction and structural restoration services that diminish the likelihood that you will ever have to deal with dry rot again!

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.
