Picking the right contractor will be well worth all the effort you choose to put into the search as it could save you from having to re-do the project in the future

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

Critical Nature Of Dry Rot Repair

Wood rot is a progressive condition that spreads throughout any moist or wet wood in your Gig Harbor home, inflicting increasing damage upon your home’s wood structures as it advances. So it’s best to catch it early so damages and cost of repairs are minimized. Once detected, the wood fungus that causes dry rot must be removed entirely, down to each and every microscopic spore, in order to completely eradicate the cause of dry rot in your home. And this is definitely a job best done by professionals.

How Do You Properly Fix Dry Rot?

Dry rot is a term that describes various stages of deterioration in wood which compromises its capacity to function properly in your home. Caused by a fungus that invades and feeds on moist or damp wood, dry rot can be more easily removed and the wood more readily repaired in its earlier stages.

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.
