Efficient Wood Rot Repair

Dry rot is what happens when fungus begins to grow on exposed wood. Any piece of wood on your home that is exposed to the elements could be susceptible to dry rot. The fungus grows, feeding off of the wood and damaging it. The wood appears dry and brittle, giving dry rot its name. Dry rot is caused by consistent exposure to moisture, from the rain, sprinklers, and leaks.

      Dry rot will only keep spreading until it’s treated, so treat it as soon as possible to reduce the chances of serious damage. When dry rot has taken hold of a wooden structure, like a doorway or window sill, you should replace it with new wood to get rid of the chance of dry rot spreading. However, if the damage is not extensive yet, you can use antifungal solutions to kill the dry rot. In some cases, there is a solution that can be injected into the wood in order to strengthen it. If you believe that you’ve got a dry rot problem, the first step is to have an inspection performed to see how bad the damage is.
