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

Wood Rot

Dry rot also called ‘wood rot,’ is a condition of decay and deterioration in healthy wood caused by an aggressive and destructive wood fungus. The wood fungus that results in dry rot feeds on wood that is wet or moist and turns healthy and strong wood into a cracking and crumbling state that is no longer functional for use in your Wilsonville home. The fungus can make wood in your home look as if mushrooms or cobwebs are growing on it. It is a sinister-looking deterioration of the originally healthy wood in your home into a messy, smelly, and unsavory condition.

Removing dry rot from your home and restoring the wood structures it has invaded to a healthy condition is a vital process to ‘heal’ your home – otherwise, the dry rot fungus keeps feeding and spreading throughout the wood. It is also critical to hire a professional to extract the dry rot from your home because you need to get all of it, right down to the microscopic pores, to kill it off.

SFW Construction is a premiere Wilsonville dry rot removal and structural restoration service. As a general contractor, we can address any structural problems associated with dry rot, such as replacing dilapidated siding, repairing your roof, or any other construction work to rebuild the portions of your home affected by dry rot.

If it sounds like your home might have this problem, we’ll schedule an affordable in-home inspection to assess the condition and let you know your options for dry rot treatment.

Dry Rot Signs & Symptoms

Here are a few common indications of dry rot:

  • Floor “gives” or squeaks when walked upon
  • Wood surfaces are discolored or look like cobwebs, cotton or mushrooms
  • Wood surfaces are shrinking and cracked or soft and loose
  • A damp and musty odor

Repairing Rotted Wood Around A Window

Dry Rot Repairs|

4 MIN READ

Windows are an essential component of the house you live in. As intermediaries between the outside and inside of your home, windows are especially vulnerable to large amounts of moisture. Any water damage around a window indicates that the frame is not functioning correctly or that water from the outside of the home is leaking inside—which will eventually cause the wood around your window frame to rot.

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.
