Being a homeowner can be challenging, especially when unexpected problems arise where you need a contractor.

However, before you hire just any contractor or handyman, we recommend doing some research to understand your problem, what the solution entails, and how to pick the right contractor. Picking the right contractor will be well worth all the effort you choose to put into the search as it could save you from having to re-do the project in the future

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

How Dry Rot Damages Your Bothell Home

Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that feeds on healthy wood that is moist or damp. The fungus actually devours the component of wood that makes it cohesive, strong and firm. Once the fungus has eaten away at the wood in your Bothell home, the once healthy wood begins to rot, dilapidate, crumble and fall apart. Obviously, wood in such a condition presents significant dangers to the structure and functionality of your home.

Why It Is Important To Address And Eradicate Dry Rot From Your Bothell Home

You may think that dry rot is nothing much to worry about or that your home is tough enough to withstand a little fungus. The problem is that the fungus that causes dry rot is incessant and progressive. It doesn’t just invade and decay one area of wood then die out—it spreads continuously through any and all sources of damp or moist wood it can locate. While your dry rot problem may not be terrible today, it can expand tremendously over the course of a few years. Nipping it in the bud, so to speak, is really the most effective and cost-efficient way to confront this very common problem.
