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 Problem Of Dry Rot In Edmonds, Washington

Dry rot is a term that represents various states of decay in wood. It is caused by a fungus that inhabits and feeds on wood that is moist or damp. As a progressive condition, in its early stages, dry rot appears on wood surfaces as a large collection of spores that have a reddish tint. As it progresses into more advanced stages, the spores expand and create growths on wood that may look like cotton or cobwebs. In some instances, dry rot manifests as mushroom-like growths on wood. In either case, dry rot eventually depletes wood of its coherence, makes it crack, crumble and break apart easily.

Dry Rot Can Make Your Edmonds Home Unsafe

Wood rot dilapidates the healthy wood in your Edmonds home, making it unreliable and ineffective to provide a structure, it can also endanger the people living in your home. Dry rot that is left unchecked and unattended to will usually continue to expand and spread throughout whatever moist or damp wood sources it can locate. As it does this it will make your home increasingly inhabitable for you and your family.

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.
