What Is Dry Rot?
Dry rot is also known as brown rot or wood rot. Dry rot is a fungus that quickly consumes wood materials and causes the wood structure to become weak and eventually turn to dust. If your Pacific City homes has been exposed to the dry rot fungi, the damage can spread quickly through your home with little moisture present. This makes predicting dry rot damage challenging before it spreads.
Where Can Dry Rot Be Found?
Dry rot can enter your home via interior and exterior sources and infest any wood structure. Dry rot is more commonly found where moisture is likely to be present, but you can find it in posts, beams, kitchen and bathroom floors and walls, deck framing, deck boards, eaves, roofs, near damaged gutters, foundations, sill plates, window and door framing, siding, cripple walls and crawl spaces, among others. Spotting dry rot is not always easy, but there are some things you can look for.
