Being a homeowner can be challenging, especially when unexpected problems arise where you need a contractor.

However, before you hire just any contractor or handyman, we recommend doing some research to understand your problem, what the solution entails, and how to pick the right contractor. Picking the right contractor will be well worth all the effort you choose to put into the search as it could save you from having to re-do the project in the future

Common Signs Of Dry Rot

Dry rot, also known as wood rot, is a serious problem that can threaten the structural integrity of your home by eating away and deteriorating the wood. While discovering dry rot you may also notice the discoloration of wood surfaces, a dank mildew smell, or areas in your floor that “give” when you walk upon it are all common indications of dry rot in your home.

Dry rot occurs in areas that are subject to excessive moisture including, but not limited to:

  • Areas of your kitchen and bathroom
  • Deck floorboards, ledger, and posts
  • Floor covering, subfloor, and joists
  • Framing around windows and doors
  • Inside posts, beams, joists, and sills
  • Roof shingles, gutters, soffit, and fascia
  • Walls, baseboards, stiles, and rails

Industry Leading Dry Rot Repair

Thriving on the moisture in wood, dry rot can occur in any wood that is exposed to a damp, wet, or rainy condition. This means dry rot can occur in both interior and exterior areas of your Milwaukie home. Common exterior locations are the frame and ledges around windows and doors, the wood around gutters, and the roof beneath loose shingles. Common interior locations highlight the floors, countertops, and walls in the bathroom and kitchen, but also include the attic, crawlspaces, cellar and floors throughout the home.

Once wood rot has taken hold of structures or surfaces of your Milwaukie home it tends to consume the wood in an unbridled fashion. If left untreated, dry rot will gradually deteriorate whatever wood structure it has inhabited. So, if you suspect you have dry rot it’s a good idea to consult a professional and have your home inspected. The sooner you address the problem the less damage the dry rot will inflict, and the easier and more cost-effective it will be for you to have fixed.

Signs & Symptoms Of Dry Rot

Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus, it is associated with a musty, fungus-like smell and may cause infected wood to have mushroom-like growths or appear to have cobwebs or a cotton-like surface. Dry rot causes wood to appear darker than normal and may cause it to shrink or become loose. Areas of flooring that bend in or “give” when walked on may have dry rot underneath them.
