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.
