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
Professional Dry Rot Repair
Having dry rot in your home is like having a serious cavity in your tooth—the decay must be removed so that you can eat properly and without pain or danger of losing your tooth. In the same way, your home may become unsafe when affected by serious dry rot. You need a professional Burien dry rot repair company to remove the dry rot wood fungus so that it can no longer take hold in your home.
SFW Construction has provided expert Burien dry rot removal and repair services for over a decade. As a general contractor, we are thoroughly experienced and equipped to remove your dry rot and conduct home restoration repairs, including structural carpentry, siding repair and roofing work. Because it is a progressive problem, it’s better to address dry rot sooner than later. In later stages, dry rot completely dilapidates the wood in your home, presenting the need for substantial repairs and restoration work. If caught in earlier stages, dry rot is more easily eradicated from your home and repairs are less intensive.
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.
