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 Can You Tell If You Might Have Dry Rot In Your Hillsboro Home?
Because the fungus that causes dry rot eats away at the structural integrity of the wood in your Hillsboro home, you can typically tell if you have dry rot based on signs that indicate weakened or deteriorating wood. For instance, floors that have spots that ‘give’ or squeak when you walk on them may indicate that the wood beneath your floor is compromised. Any wood that appears darker than usual, discolored, seems to be softer or looser than normal or looks as if it is shrinking or cracking may be affected by dry rot. Musty mildew smell is another good sign, and if any wood surface in your home has a growth on it that looks like mushrooms, cobwebs, or cotton, you are likely dealing with an advanced stage of dry rot.
