Dry Rot Treatment Inside Your Home
Interior dry rot is dry rot that has spread to the interior portion of the wood products in your Portland home. Those issues travel behind the weather barrier and walls. Most importantly, this could include the wood frames of your walls, ceilings, floors, and around windows and doors as well as plywood and particle board on top of these support boards.
Dry rot can enter the interior of your Portland home in several ways. The most common entry points for dry rot to enter your Portland home are under your home’s siding, leaking windows and doors, garage, chimney chase, or defective roofing. It could be the result of improper material installment, or merely the slow degradation of the materials over time. Improperly flashed windows, or damaged siding by the elements, and all roofs will eventually leak.
In some cases, dry rot occurs in areas that are not in contact with the exterior of your home. Leaky pipes, faulty caulking around plumbing fixtures, and damp crawl spaces can also lead to dry rot damage. All of this can be happening without your knowledge.
