What Is Dry Rot And Why Is It So Dangerous?
Dry rot is the term used to describe previously healthy wood that has been deteriorated by a wood fungus that causes decay. Ironically, the wood fungi involved in dry rot eats away at the parts of the wood that make it strong and hard. Feeding on the moisture in the wood, the fungus causes wood to become brittle and to break apart and crumble—which is obviously what you don’t want happening to the structure of your home!
Dry rot fungus isn’t content to eat just one portion of wood, it spreads to the nearest healthy wood it can find and keeps consuming and deteriorating all the healthy wood it can find. If your Gresham home has been infiltrated by dry rot, it must be addressed or it will continue to destroy whatever wood it can.
