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

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 can thoroughly examine and diagnose your home for dry rot, and is well-equipped to effectively address and remediate any dry rot problems.
Most Common Signs Of Dry Rot Include:
- Wood that is discolored, cracking or appears to be shrinking.
- An appearance like cobwebs, cotton, or mushrooms on wood.
- An earthy, rotting or unusual musty odor around wood or in enclosed wooden spaces.
- Flooring with concave areas that sink in when walked upon.
- Any wood surface or structure that is no longer functioning properly.
