An Inside Look At The Problem Of Dry Rot
As a homeowner who has done all you can to preserve the integrity of your home, you may be wondering just how dry rot happens. For starters, the name ‘dry rot’ is misleading. The wood fungus that causes dry rot is spawned in wet or moist wood. After years of doing its work—having invaded, ‘digested’, and decayed once healthy wood—what remains is dilapidated wood that cracks, crumbles and falls apart when under pressure. The state of dry rot is the final condition.
This sounds terrible, we know! As a homeowner, you want to preserve your Burien home and maintain its sanctity—and wood rot is a condition that threatens your home. Wood that has been decayed by dry rot is mostly unusable, it no longer is durable or firm. Such wood cannot perform its intended function in your home and must be removed so that the wood structures and surfaces in your home can be repaired and restored to good health and functionality.
