WHAT CAN WE DO
Our Dry Rot Repair team is ready to help you and your family get back to normal
Dry rot is the term used to describe rotten wood, specifically in the context of construction. This “wood rot” affects all wood members exposed to the elements, such as rain, sun and wind. A destructive fungus develops, damaging the wood, which leads to the condition that we know today as “dry rot”. These conditions develop due to continuous moisture exposure from rain, sprinklers, roof leaks, plumbing leaks or gutter/ downspout malfunction.
Like a cancer, the only way to repair affected areas is to remove the rotted members and treat the adjacent framing, trims, siding, etc. with a registered fungicide. There are alsomeasures that can be taken to prevent dry rot damage, and they are these:
- Sealing all seams and nail holes with caulk/ silicone
- Painting the structure every 5-10 years
- Utilizing quality wood for construction
- Redirecting water sources away from wood members
Dry rot can be found in many areas of a home or stucture, including: windows, doors, siding, decks, patios, beams, roofing, and framing. Poor house maintenance will help speed up rot accumulation and water damage, increasing future repair costs.
