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 Takes Hold And Corrodes Your Home

Dry rot is, ironically, a condition caused by a wood fungus that feeds on wet or damp wood, robbing it of its vigor and strength. Though dry rot is progressive and advances through a few stages, the end condition of dry rot is wood that is basically worthless—cracked, crumbling and breaking apart under pressure. Obviously, wood that has been reduced to dry rot is not fit to support your home structure or surfaces and must be repaired.

Professional Lake Forest Dry Rot Repair

Removing wood rot from your Lake Forest Park home and restoring wood surfaces and structures that have been invaded by dry rot is a complex procedure. The first step involves removing all the wood fungus that cause dry rot, which includes the microscopic spores from which it is born (otherwise it will only continue). Then the dry rot itself must be removed, along with all the wood infected with dry rot. This process can entail structural restoration if previously healthy wood structures have been compromised by the dry rot.

SFW Construction is a comprehensive general contractor, licensed and certified to provide the full gamut of home construction, carpentry and remodeling. You may not need a whole lot of structural renovation, but it’s good to know that you have an experienced and qualified professional at your disposal if you do. We are a recognized and reputable Lake Forest Park dry rot repair specialist, providing high quality and cost-effective dry rot removal to homeowners for over a decade.
