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 Explained

Dry rot is a deterioration of healthy wood caused by an aggressive wood fungus that thrives in moisture. The term ‘dry rot,’ also known as ‘wood rot,’ refers to the decayed remains of previously healthy wood after the wood fungus has invaded it and eaten away all its strength and vigor. Having dry rot in the structure of your home is like having decay in your tooth – in order to restore your West Linn home to a healthy state, all the wood rot must be removed along with the wood fungus that results in this condition. To do this effectively requires hiring a professional.

Dry Rot Removal And Home Restoration

SFW Construction has provided the premiere dry rot removal service in West Linn, Oregon since 2005. Our crew of trained professionals is extensively experienced in addressing dry rot problems and removing all the fungus that causes dry rot from the wood structure of your West Linn home. Removing the dry rot from your West Linn home is critical because the wood fungus that causes it will spread throughout the wood structure until it is eradicated. If you know or suspect you have dry rot, it’s a great idea to consult a professional and take care of the problem before it gets worse and more expensive to address.

We are so effective at what we do at SFW Construction because we are a general contractor that can repair any problem with your home. Removing wood that is infected with dry rot may involve new construction work, siding repair, even fixing windows or door frames. As a full-scale construction company, this is the work we do day in and day out. Our ability to address all your home repair issues results in you saving both money and time.

The Following Are Common Symptoms Of Dry Rot:

  • A mildew-like or musty odor around wooden areas.
  • Floors or wood surfaces that are darker than usual or discolored.
  • Flooring with areas that become concave, “give” or squeak when walked upon.
  • Wood surfaces or structures are shrinking or cracking.
  • Wood surfaces or structures are softer than normal or seem to be loose.
  • Cobweb, cotton, or mushroom-like growths appear on wood surfaces.

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.

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.
