Mares & Dow – General Home Contractors

Your Source for Comprehensive Dry Rot Repair Solutions

Serving San Francisco and East Bay Since 1983

In coastal regions like San Francisco, dry rot can be a serious issue for structures of all kinds. If you have an older structure or have noticed signs of dry rot taking hold, contact the experts at Mares & Dow Construction & Skylights to assess the situation and provide the reliable dry rot repairs you need to protect your building.

Does Your Building Need Dry Rot Repair?

The first step to finding an effective solution for dry rot is identifying the issue. Moisture can penetrate deep within wooden structural elements, leading to the growth of fungi over a long time. Affected areas can lose strength and also look very unappealing.

The experts at Mares & Dow Construction & Skylights can track down potential sources of moisture, such as leaks and external breaches. When we handle dry rot, we ensure that both the affected areas and the root cause of the problem are dealt with properly to ensure a long-term solution for your property.
