Dry Rot Removal and Structural Restoration Service

It is ironic that a condition 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 LLC 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 interface with outside of the home or interior areas that are subject to moisture. Inside the house, the bathroom and kitchen are common areas that may develop dry rot. Window frames, door areas and under shingles on your roof are also common places.

Although 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 fungus it will continue to eat away at the structure of your home. SFW Construction LLC provides Tigard dry rot extraction and structural restoration services that diminish the likelihood that you will ever have to deal with dry rot again!
