Dry rot and water damage repair
Since most of us are spending our days inside, we’ve likely noticed things in or around our house that we overlooked before COVID-19. In many cases it’s dry rot or water damage due to the weather and moisture we experience in the Portland area. When you notice that your home has the beginning signs of rot, you potentially have a serious problem.
Dry rot can come from the exterior of your home in the form of roof leaks, siding leaks and decks that either are rotten themselves or cause water to intrude into the exterior walls because of improperly installed flashing. Many decks from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s pose a safety risk and should be evaluated right away.
Interior problems are often caused by poorly constructed shower pans or plumbing leaks. See the photo below for the damaged caused by a leaking shower pan.
