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

Why Dry Rot Is So Threatening To Your Keizer Home

Dry rot is a condition of decay in previously healthy wood that has been invaded by the wood fungus that promotes dry rot. Like most fungi, this particular wood rot thrives on wood that is wet or moist—which is why it is so prevalent in Keizer, Oregon and throughout the Northwest. Once dry rot has inhabited wood surfaces or structures in your home, it consumes the aspect of wood that makes it strong and firm—the result is deteriorated wood that cracks, crumbles, and falls apart. Wood rot in such a state of dilapidation cannot function to keep your Keizer home safe, and this is why it’s so important to address dry rot.

What You Can Do To Address Dry Rot In Your Home

While Keizer homeowners who reside in the state of Oregon tend to be industrious, the problem of dry rot is one that is best addressed by trained professionals. The wood fungus that causes dry rot is spawned from microscopic spores that must be detected and eradicated from your home in order to eliminate the dry rot altogether. Also, dry rot tends to cause structural damage to your home that may necessitate construction and structural restoration work.

Identifying Dry Rot In Your Home

Symptoms of dry rot include wood surfaces that are dark, discolored, cracked, loose, or shrinking. Squeaky floors that “give” when walked may indicate dry rot in the baseboards or crawl spaces. Mildew or musty odors indicate fungus and dry rot, as does cobweb, cotton or mushroom-like growths appear on wood surfaces.

The garage feels like a distinctly American component of the modern home. It’s a place you can park your car, store your extra stuff, do the laundry, or even convert into a shop or casual hang-out space. However you use it, the garage is also the unique part of your home that marks the transition between the outside world and the inner sanctity of your dwelling, which makes it especially susceptible to garage rot – areas where wood surfaces and structures are rotting.
