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 Wood Dry Rot Can Invade And Decay Your Home

Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that is prevalent in Puyallup as it feeds on wet, damp or moist sources of wood that are abundant in the rainy Northwest climate. The wood fungus can spawn on any wood in your home that is exposed regularly to moisture or humidity, as is common in the kitchen and bathroom as well as around windows and doors. Beginning as a sheen of tiny reddish spores, the wood fungus proceeds to permeate and decay the wood in your home. In fact, it will not usually stop until completely eradicated.

In advanced stages, the wood fungus causes the state known as dry rot, a condition in which the wood structures and surfaces of your home are decayed and dilapidated. Such wood is not fit to provide stability for your home and must be repaired.

Wood decay can be a big problem for both new and experienced homeowners but particularly plagues those of us who live in the often damp Pacific Northwest. Despite its colloquial name, dry rot is most often caused by communities of fungi growing in wood with high moisture saturation.
