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

What Is Dry Rot?

Dry rot, also known as wood rot, is a state of decay in previously healthy wood that is caused by an aggressive wood fungus that thrives on wet and moist wood. The state of deterioration which marks dry rot depends on the degree to which the wood fungus has invaded the wood it feeds upon. If caught early the problem may be mild, but once the wood rot has completely taken hold of the wood in your Bellevue home it becomes basically worthless, falling apart, cracking and crumbling like sawdust.

Treating Dry Rot

Because the wood fungus that causes dry rot is so destructive, it is essential to identify and remove dry rot before it does too much damage. If left untreated it will deteriorate the wood structures and surfaces in your home, causing dilapidation and decay. Dry rot can invade your home siding, joists, beams, flooring, roof and any wood structures. Having a professional Bellevue dry rot expert inspect your home for dry rot will save you lots of hassle and headache down the road, especially if we are able to catch it before it gets too advanced.

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.
