How Dry Rot Invades And Corrodes Home
Although it’s called ‘dry rot,’ this nasty problem is caused by a wood fungus that thrives on wood that is moist or wet, which means it is very prevalent in Happy Valley and throughout Oregon. Beginning as a microscopic spore, the fungus feeds on the aspect of healthy wood that makes it strong and durable, eventually causing it to crack and crumble and fall apart – which means it will no longer do its job in your home very well.
The wood fungus that results in dry rot isn’t content to eat just one portion of wood; like a contagion, it continues to spread throughout any moist wood it can feed upon. This common Northwest problem requires professional dry rot removal treatment to rid it completely, so it won’t reoccur. With over a decade of dry rot removal and structural home restoration, SFW Construction is well-suited to resolve any dry rot problems in your home.

Wood rot tends to occur in those areas of your Happy Valley home that are prone to excessive moisture, such as the bathroom and the kitchen. It can occur in wood countertops, in the wood structures of walls and in wood flooring. Dry rot also occurs in exterior wooden parts of your home, including the roof under loose shingles, wood around gutters, and frames and sills around windows and doors.
The following are common symptoms of dry rot:
- A mildew-like or musty odor around wooden areas
- Floors or wood surfaces that are darker than usual or discolored
- Flooring with areas that become concave, “give” or squeak when walked upon
- Wood surfaces or structures are shrinking or cracked
- Wood surfaces or structure are softer than normal or seem to be loose
- Cobweb, cotton or mushroom-like growths appear on wood surfaces
