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
Dry Rot Repair And Structural Restoration
Dry rot is a wood fungus that is extremely destructive to healthy wood. It typically takes hold in wood that is moist or wet and can occur in many places of your home. The history of the term ‘dry rot’ goes back to the 1700s when British ships that had been in use on the ocean were docked and dried out, then promptly began to crumble. Though it appeared that the rotted condition was caused by drying, it was already present but came to fruition once the boat structure dried. Detecting and removing wood infected with dry rot is critical because, just like those British ships, the wooden structure of your home is at high risk when deteriorated by dry rot fungus.
If you suspect you have dry rot, give SFW Construction a call! After detecting dry rot, determining the extent of damage is essential, followed by the removal of all wood infected by the dry rot fungus. Like the decay that causes a tooth cavity, we must eliminate dry rot fungus to restore health to the wood in your Beaverton home. Addressing dry rot sooner than later is essential because – just like tooth decay – the sooner you catch it, the less repair work needs to be done. Dry rot eats away at the aspect of healthy wood that makes it strong and firm, robbing it of its ability to do its job in your home. When dry rot has advanced in any wood structure of your home, the wood will begin to decay, fall apart and crumble.
