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
Dry Rot Explained
Dry rot is a deterioration of healthy wood caused by an aggressive wood fungus that thrives in moisture. The term ‘dry rot,’ also known as ‘wood rot,’ refers to the decayed remains of previously healthy wood after the wood fungus has invaded it and eaten away all its strength and vigor. Having dry rot in the structure of your home is like having decay in your tooth – in order to restore your home to a healthy state all the dry rot must be removed along with the wood fungus that results in this condition. To do this effectively requires hiring a professional.

Here are a few common indications of dry rot:
- Floor “gives” or squeaks when walked upon.

- A damp and musty odor.
