What Is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is commonly referred to as brown rot or wood rot. Dry rot is a fungus that enters your home and feeds off your home’s wood materials. The result of a dry rot infested area is the wood becomes very weak and can start to crumble. If your Manzanita home’s structure has been exposed to the dry rot fungi, the damage can move quickly with little visible signs of moisture.
Where Can Dry Rot Be Found?
Dry rot can enter your home through either the interior or exterior construction materials. Wood rot can be found in any wood materials in and around your Manzanita home. Dry rot is commonly found near a source of moisture or unprotect exterior wood surface. Still, you can find it in beams, posts, kitchen floors, bathroom floors, interior walls, deck framing, deck boards, foundations, sill plates, eaves, roofs, near damaged gutters, windows and doors, framing, siding, and crawl spaces, among others. Spotting dry rot is not always easy, but there are some things you can look for.
