Being a homeowner can be challenging, especially when unexpected problems arise where you need a contractor.

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

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.
