Dry rot is a fast-acting fungus that feeds off of your home’s wood structures. Dry rot can cause affected materials to become brittle, weak, and unsafe. If dry rot has affected your Lincoln City home, the damage can multiply quickly with little moisture present.
Dry rot can infest any wood structure in your home’s interior or exterior. It can be found anywhere in your home. Dry rot is often located near a moisture source, but you can find dry rot in posts, kitchen and bathroom floors, roofs, near damaged gutters, deck framing, deck boards, beams, soffits, eaves, foundations, window or doors, framing, sill plates, siding, and crawl spaces, among others.
