I was very impressed with the level of service I received from Elite. The work crew arrived as scheduled and did an excellent job of completing the siding repairs on my house. Max personally came out and met with me to address a concern I had about the work being done. He was patient, informative, and very professional. I will not hesitate to call Elite for any future work I’m having done.

How To Identify Dry Rot
When the spores of a fungus land on window sills, door frames, or the ground surrounding a home, dry rot can occur. For most property owners, the only answer to, “What is dry rot?” is an unsightly deterioration of the wood on a home and a big headache. Affected wood can darken or crack, the paint may blister or peel, and the consistency of the wood will become weak, crumbling, or even powdery.
The most common symptom of dry rot, even without physically seeing the outbreak, are the presence of a damp, musty and fungal smell. The smell may not necessarily mean there is a dry rot issue, but would certainly indicate an issue with dampness; however dampness can often lead to dry rot depending on the extent of the issue.
Does Dry Rot spread?
Dry rot is a living growing fungus. As such it feeds on timbers and will actively seek out new food sources when it has to. New sources of food been fresh wood fibers. If the humidity conditions are right dry rot can spread rapidly through a property on the hunt for more food.
How to treat Dry Rot
Dry rot should be treated as soon as possible to avoid severe damage occurring. The most common method of how to treat dry rot is by simply rebuilding the windowsill, door-frame, or other affected area. In some cases, the fungus has damaged wood only slightly. Antifungal preparations can stop the problem from expanding or repeating. If this spot is difficult to get at, the dry rot repair contractor will inject a special solution to strengthen the boards. If you do suspect dry rot might be causing wood damage to your property then the best option is to request a dry rot survey as soon as possible. Contact our Sacramento dry rot specialists today and we will ensure that the property is wood rot free.
I had several contractors give me estimates and I chose Elite because of the way Dan presented the work they would do, the very good reviews here on Yelp and the competitive quote they gave me. I needed the siding on the south facing wall of my house removed and replaced, due to sun and rain damage. Once the siding was removed, dry rot was discovered (not really a surprise) and Elite dealt with that. After replacing the siding, the company also painted my entire house.
Here are the things that I liked about Elite.
Competitive pricing. Very good about answering any questions I had onsite during the whole process (especially Eduardo and Fabio). They also consulted with me as work went along about my preferences that had not been previously discussed. Quality of repairs and painting seem very good!! Max (the owner) was prompt in answering questions I sent by email. The cleanup they did each day at end of work was very good!! Unlike many other contractors who have worked on my house, they did not bring their boom boxes. That was really appreciated. I am very please overall with the work done by Elite and would recommend their services.

Elite Fixed dry rot on outside window siding of our home in Folsom. They were very professional and pleasant to work with. Great communication as well as execution.
Elite performed a dry rot repair and paint job on our 2 story home. They were easy to contact and deal with. Based on other quotes we received, they were priced comparably. The repairs were completed on time and to our satisfaction as promised. We made two requests for some trim they installed to be swapped out, and they did so without question. They even replaced a loose exterior outlet cover, no charge. I recommend them without reservation.
Fantastic! We just purchased a house in Cameron Park and needed some dry rot and cupboard repairs done where there had been a leak before the financing on the loan could be completed. Max came out, gave a very fair estimate and had the work completed beautifully and quickly! He took photos of the house and paint matched the outside which was SO appreciated! Looking forward to using him and his crew for some other remodeling needs after escrow closes. No hesitation to have them back! I called Elite simply based on Yelp reviews and couldn’t be more pleased. Don’t hesitate to call them!

There are a lot of good things that I could say about this company and the men that work to make it so great. I have had a lot of experience working with Max and his crews. Every time I am amazed with their level of professionalism and the quality of their work. The most important trait I see in Max and his guys is that they are honest hard working men. I appreciate that they are upfront and communicate every step of the process. They are excellent in dry rot and termite damage repairs and the quality of their work shows that they have a lot of experience in this field. If you have dry rot or termite damage, do not hesitate to call these guys, you will not regret it. Remember, they are honest, reasonable and professional. Thank you guys for all your hard work and help.
Highly recommended. Very professional and great communication throughout. Dry Rot repair completed in a day, including painting. Couldn’t be more happy. Looks brand new.
I don’t give out 5 stars to just anyone. If you don’t believe me check my page! But Max and his team were exceptional! They did dry rot repair on my home and did it rather quickly but with such articulate detail. They are clearly very skilled in their profession. Max especially was super respectful and patient when I asked many questions about the process. As a woman, It can be terrifying for a group of man to work about your home, but they did their work perfectly to the final dot. They treated my home as if it was their own. I will definitely be a returning costumer.
After getting 3 bids on some dry rot damage on my house I went with Max at Elite Construction. The Best Decision I’ve had! He gave me a very good price compared to others and did more work. From the moment I met Max I was impressed and without hesitation would call again to get work done. Can’t recommend enough!
The contractors were professional, friendly, efficient and did a good job repairing the siding on my house. Unfortunately, I can’t give them 5 stars because they left a handful of nails scattered in my yard where my young children play. I appreciate how quickly they finished the work, but I do wish they had taken a little more time on the clean up. Other than that, I would definitely recommend their services.
I used Elite for some dry rot work around my 100-year-old house. I do not trust most companies with a 100-year-old anything. Like a classic car, you have to take it to the people who know how to treat it right and handle it with care. Igor did that for me. They were courteous, gave me needed advice, and worked with me and my other contractors like the pros they are. We needed to schedule around rain, plumbers, my work, HVAC people, and a window company. Igor and his crew were flexible, attentive, and communicate. If you would like a guy that answers calls and questions Igor is your man. If you would like a company that delivers quality work and a competitive price (I don’t feel I overpaid in the slightest) then Elite is your company.
There is a reason Elite are so highly rated on Yelp. I’m glad that I contracted with them and know I made the right decision for this old house. I am planning on using them again for future projects.
I needed some dry rot repairs done on my home, and I needed them done in a pretty quick time frame. Elite responded to my request for a quote quickly and were at my house to give me an estimate the next day.
Igor arrived on time for the estimate, took a look at my project and discussed my options and some potential challenges. He was very quick to send me some pictures of possible building materials he could use in place of the existing, most likely no longer available, materials.
Elite scheduled a crew to work on my project within my short time frame, and the repairs were completed while I was at work. The finished product looked great and they cleaned up so well, I couldn’t even tell they had been working there!
I needed some slight modifications after the work was completed, and Elite did not hesitate to work with me to get those addressed.
Elite was great about communicating with me during the project from beginning to end as well.
Thanks Elite for a great experience!
Max and hit crew were professional, considerate and flexible. Max was easy to work with , and delivered exactly what was promised, in the timeframe he promised it . I would absolutely use him in the future , as well as refer others to him . He specializes in home inspection repairs, but I would love to work with him in the future on other projects. It’s nice to meet an honest contractor. Thank you Max!
I can’t say enough how great a job Max Manuylov and his crew did on our dry rot repair. Max and his crew completed our job in one day including painting replacement wood. He came out and bid the job the day after we contacted. I called him over the weekend and he was out Monday with all the crew and supplies. They were very nice, professional and totally cleaned up after finishing the job. I would highly recommend them for any dry rot job you have!! Five stars plus.
