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.

Dry Rot Signs & Symptoms

Because dry rot occurs in wood that is moist or wet, you are most likely to find it in places like the kitchen and the bathroom. However, dry rot can also occur in crawl spaces and attics as well as exterior areas of your home, such as the wood around gutters, windows and doors and under shingles.

Here are a few common indications of dry rot:

  • Floor “gives” or squeaks when walked upon.
  • Wood surfaces are discolored or look like cobwebs, cotton or mushrooms.
  • Wood surfaces are shrinking and cracked or soft and loose.
  • A damp and musty odor.
