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

Why Dry Rot Is So Threatening To Your Home

Dry rot is a condition of decay in previously healthy wood that has been invaded by the wood fungus that promotes dry rot. Like most fungi, this wood fungus thrives on wood that is wet or moist—which is why it is so prevalent throughout the Northwest. Once dry rot has inhabited wood surfaces or structures in your home, it consumes the aspect of wood that makes it strong and firm—the result is deteriorated wood that cracks, crumbles, and falls apart. Wood in such a state of dilapidation cannot function to keep your home safe, and therefore it’s so important to address dry rot.

Signs & Symptoms Of Dry Rot

Any significant or unusual change in the condition of the wood structure or surfaces in your home may indicate dry rot, especially changes in appearance, functionality and odor. At advanced stages dry rot is easier to detect, but in earlier phases as well as when it is in out-of-view areas, it is harder to identify.

The following is a general list of dry rot signs & symptoms:

  • Wood surfaces or structures looks as if they are shrinking or cracked.
  • Floor has soft spots that become concave or squeak when walked on.
  • Wood surfaces or structure are softer than normal or seem to be loose.
  • Floors or wood surfaces are darker than usual or discolored.
  • Cobweb, cotton or mushroom-like growths appear on wood surfaces.
  • There is a musty, mildew odor around areas that have wood.

Addressing dry rot in your home is a process best conducted by trained professionals with dry rot removal expertise. SFW Construction has years of Canby dry rot removal and repair service. As a full-scale contractor, we can address any and all issues associated with dry rot in your home, such as repairing or replacing damaged siding, restoring damaged wood structures and fixing the roof.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around Your Garage

The garage feels like a distinctly American component of the modern home. It’s a place you can park your car, store your extra stuff, do the laundry, or even convert into a shop or casual hang-out space. However you use it, the garage is also the unique part of your home that marks the transition between the outside world and the inner sanctity of your dwelling, which makes it especially susceptible to garage rot – areas where wood surfaces and structures are rotting.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around A Window

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.
