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 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.

What to Look for if You Think you Have Dry Rot

Dry rot affects wood surfaces and structures in your home is distinguishable ways. While most symptoms are visual, dry rot is also often accompanied with a musty or fungus-like odor. It can also be detected by feeling concave areas on your floor that “give” when walked upon. Visual cues related to dry rot mostly center around wood that is darker or discolored from its original condition or wood that looks cracked, like cotton or has cobweb or mushroom growths on it. Wood rot also causes wood to shrink and become loose, so any significant changes in the functionality of wood structures or surfaces in your Lake Forest Park home may also indicate dry rot.

Dry rot can occur in interior as well as exterior portions of your home, typically in places that have excessive moisture or exposure to the elements. The kitchen, bathrooms, areas around windows and doors are prominent, but dry rot can also happen in wood around gutters and under loose shingles in the roof.
