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

Wood rot is more than a simple annoyance, it’s a condition that can eventually threaten the safety and value of your Vancouver home.

Having conducted this work since 2005, SFW Construction is extensively experienced at Vancouver dry rot repair and can help you resolve your dry rot situation.

Most Common Indications Of Dry Rot

Dry rot is caused by a wood fungus that feeds on sources of wet or damp wood. The fungus proceeds from an early stage, in which it manifests as a sheen of reddish spores, to later stages in which it has stripped previously healthy wood of its strength and vigor. Depending on the stage of progression, dry rot will have specific signs and symptoms—so it’s best to talk with an expert to diagnose how best to treat the wood rot in your Vancouver home.

Professional Dry Rot Repair – Why You Need An Expert

Hiring a professional Vancouver dry rot removal and repair company to address the wood rot in your home is a good idea for a few reasons. First, in order to ensure the dry rot does not reoccur, it is necessary to eradicate all of the fungi that cause it—right down to the microscopic spores from which the fungus is born. Second, dry rot often does considerable damage to the wood structures and surfaces of your home. If this is the case, having a professional construction company assess and repair the damage is the best course of action to safeguard your home.

SFW Construction performs professional Vancouver dry rot repair that includes home restoration work to address all the damage done by the wood rot. As such, we conduct professional siding repair, structural carpentry restoration, roofing, and any other necessary home repairs needed to restore your home.
