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
What Exactly Is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is the result, in varying stages, of the effect of the wood fungus that causes it. The final condition of dry rot is just as it sounds, a state in which previously healthy wood is thoroughly decayed. Such wood cracks crumble and falls apart easily when pressure is applied to it. Therefore, wood structures and surfaces in your home that have dry rot can jeopardize the integrity of your home and the safety of you and your family.
Fortunately for Everett homeowners, the progression of dry rot takes a number of years, and if caught in earlier stages the damage it does to your home is minimal and the dry rot fungus can be eradicated more quickly. To maintain the health and safety of your home, it’s important to spot the signs of dry rot and consult with a professional Everett dry rot repair and removal company such as SFW Construction.
How Dry Rot Can Invade And Dilapidate Your Home
The wood fungus that promotes dry rot feeds on wet or damp wood, which is not hard to find in Everett, Washington! Any place in your home that is prone to excessive moisture, such as the bathroom or kitchen—even exterior areas such as the wood around gutters or roofing under loose shingles—is a prime location for the wood fungus that causes dry rot. Once the wood rot has invaded your Everett home, the fungus spreads unabated, pervading and decaying healthy wood. At this point, the fungus must be removed or it will dilapidate your home.
