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
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.
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
