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
How Dry Rot Pervades Your Home
Dry rot comes from a wood fungus that inhabits and feeds on sources of moist or damp wood. Because the fungus is prevalent in the Northwest, it can fairly easily settle in any sources of moist wood in your home, including those exposed to the elements. Once the wood fungus that causes dry rot has taken hold, it creates thousands of spores that regenerate in order to spread throughout and devour healthy wood. In advanced stages, the fungus creates a condition of decay that we call ‘dry rot’—a state in which the wood cracks, crumbles and falls apart easily when underweight or pressure.
