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

What The Heck Is Dry Rot?

Dry rot, also known as wood rot, is caused by a wood fungus that feeds on wood that is moist or wet, which makes it such a common problem in Tualatin, Oregon. The dry rot fungus eats away at healthy wood, digesting the aspect of the wood that makes it sturdy and strong. The result is wood that cracks, crumbles, falls apart, and is useless to provide a functional structure for your home. Dry rot can also make the wood in your home look very strange, as if it is made of cotton, cobwebs or mushrooms, and can make it smell like mildew. All in all, dry rot creates a dangerous situation for your home and should be addressed immediately.

How Do I Know If My Home Has Dry Rot?

There are a few predominant signs of dry rot that homeowners often notice. Any significant changes in the appearance, odor or functionality of wood surfaces or structures in your home are good indications that there may be a problem. For instance, when your floor has an area that ‘give’ or squeaks when walked upon it may be due to dry rot in the wood beneath the floor. Discolored wood or wood that is too soft or pliable may indicate dry rot as well.

Professional Tualatin Dry Rot Removal

Removing wood rot from your Tualatin home is critical because dry rot deteriorates the wood structures of your home, making your home unsafe. It is also essential to have a Tualatin dry rot professional address your home’s dry rot problem to make sure the condition is completely eradicated and the structure of your home is restored to good working order. If all of the dry rot fungi is not eradicated, right down to the microscopic pores from which it is born, then the dry rot will likely continue to grow.

SFW Construction has a decade of dry rot removal and structural restoration experience in Tualatin, Oregon. As a general contractor and full-scale construction company, we are also equipped to address any issues that are associated with dry rot, such as siding repair and other home construction to repair wood damaged by the dry rot.

Repairing Rotted Wood Around A Window

Dry Rot Repairs|


Windows are an essential component of the house you live in. As intermediaries between the outside and inside of your home, windows are especially vulnerable to large amounts of moisture. Any water damage around a window indicates that the frame is not functioning correctly or that water from the outside of the home is leaking inside—which will eventually cause the wood around your window frame to rot.

Exterior Targeted Home Repairs

Dry Rot Repairs|


Targeted home repairs focus on the source of your problem, rather than the treatment of your problem. Many contractors will simply patch damaged siding with new siding, or worse sell you a complete re-siding project—and call it good. On the other hand, SFW Construction investigates the underlying symptoms, usually dry rot that caused the siding to fail in the first place.
