The Tricky Problem of Dry Rot

Dry rot is, ironically, caused by a wood fungus that feeds on moist or damp wood. It inhabits the wood in your home through the proliferation of tiny reddish spores that spread out across healthy wood. As the fungus advances, it devours the properties of healthy wood that make it strong and durable. In later stages, dry rot represents a state of total decay in which previously healthy wood is dilapidated—as such, it cracks and crumbles easily and falls apart when pressure is applied to it.

Dry rot often occurs in out-of-view places, like inner walls and floorboards, crawl spaces and attics. So if you think your home may have dry rot it’s a good idea to schedule a professional in-home dry rot inspection. As trained Federal Way dry rot repair experts, SFW Construction LLC can thoroughly examine and diagnose your home for dry rot, and is well-equipped to effectively address and remediate any dry rot problems.

Indications Your Home May Have Dry Rot

The wood fungus that causes dry rot has a unique odor that, in essence, smells vaguely like rotting soil or mushrooms. In addition to unusual odors, dry rot results in discolored and warped wood that may also appear to have cotton, cobwebs or fungus-like growths on it. Lastly, wood that is functioning differently may indicate dry rot.

  • Flooring with concave areas that sink in when walked upon.
  • Any wood surface or structure that is no longer functioning properly.
