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 Problematic

Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that thrives in wet or moist wood. It eats away at the aspect of healthy wood that makes it firm and strong, reducing it to start of decay in which the wood cracks, crumbles, and breaks apart easily. Wood rot in such a state of dilapidation is not fit to provide surfaces or a structure for your Kirkland home. If left unattended, dry rot can corrode the wood in your home to the point at which it is actually unsafe to live in.
