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

The Problem Of Dry Rot In Your Home

The paradox of dry rot is that it is caused by a wood fungus that thrives in moist and damp wood. The final stage of dry rot is indeed a state in which previously healthy wood has had its rigor and strength removed. At this point, wood with dry rot has become dried out and tends to crack, crumble, and break apart – thus it becomes ineffective to provide a stable structure for your home.

The wood fungus that produces dry rot is intrusive and spreads rampantly throughout all sources of moist wood. If it is not treated by a professional Woodinville dry rot repair specialist, the problem will continue – which only does more damage to your home. That’s why having your home inspected for dry rot and having the dry rot removed entirely is so important. As dry rot progresses to advanced stages the damage it does increases, along with the cost to repair it.

Dry Rot Removal & Home Repair

SFW Construction is an experienced dry rot removal specialist. After an initial phone consultation, we begin with an in-home inspection to determine whether your home has dry rot and, if so, the extent of the problem. Then we develop a sensible and cost-effective plan to address the dry rot and restore your home to a good and safe condition. As a full-scale general contractor and construction company with years of dry rot removal experience, we are fully equipped to address all problems associated with dry rot, such as dilapidated siding, compromised wood structures, and a damaged roof. As a construction company, we specialize in siding repair and home restoration. The boon for you is that having one company address all your home repair needs saves you time, money, and hassle.

While all these symptoms are good indications that your home might have dry rot, the only way to tell for sure is to have a professional Woodinville dry rot inspection. Call SFW Construction today for a free phone consultation and, if appropriate, arrange an in-home inspection. Dry rot isn’t the end of the world, but it is a nagging problem that we can help you get rid of!

Repairing Rotted Wood Around A Window

Dry Rot Repairs|


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.

How Do You Properly Fix Dry Rot?

Dry rot is a term that describes various stages of deterioration in wood which compromises its capacity to function properly in your home. Caused by a fungus that invades and feeds on moist or damp wood, dry rot can be more easily removed and the wood more readily repaired in its earlier stages.
